Awesome experience with the kids!

Our guide was great -- Taylor was excellent. Our kids are 7 & 9, and another company in town wouldn't allow the 7 year old to ride alone. Jake's put him on a great horse (he was... read more

Our guide was great -- Taylor was excellent. Our kids are 7 & 9, and another company in town wouldn't allow the 7 year old to ride alone. Jake's put him on a great horse (he was a little nervous at first) and loved it! Would definitely go back to Jake's again in Big Sky. Small group of no more... More

Our group, which consisted of 2 families, including 5 kids in the 9 to 13 range had an unforgettable evening at Jake's horses as we took the fantastic ride and dine package. The ride itself was unbelievable as we crossed the Gallatin Rive (twice!) climbed a few mountains and rode through fields of wild flowers. Hands down the best horse... More

Our family of 4 did the two hour trail ride in the afternoon. We've only ridden horses a couple times before so are pretty much novices. The staff did a great job of first covering safety issues & making sure we were aware of some of the inherent risks that come with horseback riding. They grouped us up w/ another... More

In our experience with trail rides, the success of the ride is completely dependent on the friendliness of the guide. We had two guides for a one hour ride and I wish very much that I could remember their names because they deserve a big shout out! We had a group of four adults and five children (ages 6 to... More

Small group, highly skilled coach/group leader and off we go! Horses are well trained and easy to handle (unless you get a mule). We had wonderful time although we never sat on a horse before. Trails go through the woods and meadows and patient observer may even see some wildlife (we saw a bear!!). The ride is completely safe and... More

We did a 3 hour ride that included amazing views. Our guide, Ginny, was great - incredibly kind and easy to work with. Horses were very well cared for easy to ride.

With the breath taking views and serene setting this is a must do. The guide was very friendly and the horses well behaved. We were able to stop and get some wonderful photos and even see a little wildlife during our ride through the Galatin National Forest.

Absolutely amazing! Those are the first words that come to mind when I think of my experience at Jake's. I went with my two younger sisters and a family friend who had never ridden before today and my mother, who like me have a little experience under our belts. We did the one hour tour and time flew by. Everyone... More

My family of 2 adults and 3 teenage boys, ages 17, 15, 13, took an all day trail ride with Lane on 07/25/2014. Although all of us had been on trail rides before, I considered everyone in our group beginners. Our horses were chosen and our saddles tested and we were quickly on our way to the trail head about... More

My family and I booked a 2 hour ride. Our party included 2 adults and 3 children. They do not tie off the horses when you mount, so horses are free to roam. I was told my horse likes to eat. Once I mounted my horse, she freely roamed to eat hay, which the handler allowed. Earlier while we were... More
