“My husband and I booked the one-hour horseback ride followed by an 8-mile river raft tour down the Yellowstone River. Both were Fantastic! The horseback ride offered gorgeous views and very easy well trained horses. We had Leen for the rafting guide, she was very fun and knowledgeable about the area, again stunning views of this gorgeous area, I would highly recommend both adventures.” – 28jeannes


“We did the 8-mile raft trip with Baxter. He was great. It was fun and informative. I enjoyed hearing about what it was like to grow up in Gardiner. The raft is stable and he piloted it so that we had some whitewater and some easy floats. This was well worth the price and we’ll do this again”



Long pants, closed-toe shoes. Every horse will also have a small saddle bag so you’ll have minimal storage for things like a camera, water bottle and a light jacket. Please know that this trip will go rain or shine, unless the ranch determines that the trail conditions are too dangerous. If it’s raining and the ride is still going, you will need to provide your own rain gear as the ranch does not have any for you to use.


Bathing suit, shorts, t-shirts; anything you’re comfortable getting wet.  Synthetic or quick-drying clothing is preferred over cotton.  For your feet, we recommend a water shoe that secures around the ankle (no flip flops or Crocs).  We also have river shoes available for your use, included in the price.
