Horseback Riding YellowstoneIf horseback riding with small groups, a real Montana cowboy, and amazing scenery is your idea of a great time – our rides are for you.

Our outfitting partner, the Johnson Family has been in the ranch business since the 1930′s. They operate one of the premier hunting lodges in the Rocky Mountains.

After checking in at the Flying Pig, enjoy a 6 mile scenic drive from Gardiner to the ranch. Your horseback ride will depart from the Johnson’s high mountain retreat, which borders and overlooks Yellowstone National Park.

Please be advised: The drive to the ranch is up a mountainous, gravel road.  For this reason, large RVs, travel trailers, motorcycles and vehicles with a clearance lower than a standard sedan are not recommended.

Over the past few years these rides have become so popular that we needed more room to describe these trips so we’ve dedicated a new site just to horseback riding in the north yellowstone area. Same trips – just more information
