Great Horseback ride close to Big Sky

At the base of the Big Sky go a couple miles south on 191 and you run into Jakes. We found good reviews on Trip Advisor so we booked it before we drove out to MT from KY. Jake... read more

I went on an unforgettable horseback ride with Jake's Horses and found everyone to be professional and personable from start to finish. What an incredibly beautiful ride! SO many breathtaking views, great photos (our guide took my photo as I posed on my horse!), and truly one of the best vacation experiences I've ever had. I would recommend Jake's Horses... More

We have ridden at Jakes once before and brought our young adult kids this time for a morning of great riding. The staff and guides were knowledgeable and the horses awesome! We had fun and will do again our next time in a Big Sky!

We had a great afternoon ride with Kelsie my husband and I (anothe gouple bailed so it was privaye ride). It was a beautiful day and the views were amazing. Kelsie made us feel very comfortable and told us each about little personality traits of our horses on the ride up. She was attentive the whole ride and we felt... More

Kelsey was our guide and right away she tried to get to know us and made us feel very comfortable. When helping us on our horses and giving us instructions to control the horse, she was very patient and repeated the instructions a couple times to make sure we got it. The ride itself was gorgeous and she took us... More

On a whim, my girlfriend and I called Jake's after picking up their flyer in a saloon. They were able to book us a same-day 2 hour tour (I am sure you need to book ahead in the Summer months) and get us on our way. The 2-hour tour was perfect for novice horseback riders such as ourselves and found... More

We were there off season, so my wife and I were alone with the guide for a 90 minute horseback ride. The guide was great. We love to go horseback riding, and although neither of us are experts we are far from being new to it. All too often when in a group everyone is treated like a beginner. We... More

My wife and I took the 2-hour ride recently and had a really great time. The mountains and rivers/creeks nearby were amazing and our guide, Kelsey, was fun to talk to and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed it.

Jake's Horses has offered adventures to Big Sky visitors for decades. I have been on many rides, most recently a full day ride from the corral into the Gallatin National Forest. My guide, Lexi, an enthusiastic young but experienced horsewoman, gave me another good adventure with my beautiful gal pal for the day, Macy the shiny black horse. We crossed... More

On Saturday, September 20th, I went on a two hour ride at Jake's. When filling out the necessary liability papers I indicated that I had been on many rides. I am knowledgeable about horses and riding, having owned horses for many years. When I was matched up with a horse I was given a huge draft horse. Kelsi, the trail... More
