I would highly recommend Jake's to anyone looking to have a beautiful Big Sky visual experience. Taylor (our guide) was helpful and kind. I was the novice rider in our group but she helped me to learn how to better handle my horse, Ted Turner. We saw amazing views of North Peak, took awesome pictures for the photo album and... More

Jake's horses is a great way to see some amazing views in Big Sky that would take you a whole day on foot. Crossing the river was pretty exciting this time of year but the horses are use to it and handled it with ease. My sister's horse even stopped to get a drink of water. I got some great... More

My daughter and I did one hour ride. It was very pretty and our tour guide Jeff was very talkative and knowledgeable about the area and terrain. The talkativeness was a pro and con since didn't get to just be with the horse or the scenery. One hour was plenty for us though but I do recommend it especially if... More

Whether it is a trip guided personally by Jake, or it is with one of his first-rate guides, one is always in the best of hands with Jake's Horses. It is a wonderful experience for the tourist but even the locals love to play tourist in our own backyard by going for a trail ride or enjoying one of Jake's... More

I ride with Jake's whenever we head out to Big Sky area. Always a relaxing ride with great views. Some of the best places to see you just can't get to in a car....thankfully:) Our guide this time was Jeff.....Awesome company! We "weren't there for a long time, but a good time!" He is a real gem:) Looking forward to... More

We had a group of 2 families that went on the trail ride at the end of July. Kids ages from 8 to 16 years old. The trail ride was the highlight of their vacation. We took the trail ride with supper in the hills. Jake's Horses matched each of us up with a horse of our own and matched... More

Every trip to Big Sky Montana includes a trip to Jake's Horses for a family trail ride. We have tried several other outfitters but Jake's has the most character and is preferred by my teenage daughters. They always accommodate your schedule and riding skill.

Nose to tail - but friendly wranglers, made my kids feel special. We all enjoyed our ride. Took a one-hour ride and got our money's worth. Was about $35 pp plus tip to wrangler. Easy place to find, right by the school. But the trail went up through meadows in the mountains, very scenic. i would have loved to do... More

We booked a 4 hour ride on August 5, 2013. This was one of the best rides we have ever been on and we ride every time we're on vacation. Jeff was our wrangler and he was great. He took us to see some beautiful scenery in the foothills. If was amazing how much land we covered in those 4... More

Jake's offers a variety of choices for riding. They have beautiful, well-cared for horses & friendly cowboys. The scenery for the ride was beautiful! They will even let you walk around young children on a horse. I will definitely return!
