The crew at Jake's did an excellent job matching the rider experience, temperament, and physical size with their horse. We were asked if we wanted a tame or adventurous trip. We chose adventurous. Our 2.5 hour ride that took us along game trails to the top of a mountain ridge. Even though it was cloudy, the views were impressive. We... More

We love to ride and Jake's has good horses and guides. The trails take you to some of the best "Montana Experience" locations. We would do it again.

I give Jake’s an average rate because the place is a little run down and I have better rides from other ranches before. We arrived in Montana on Sunday and went for a ride on Monday. Originally, we wanted to do a ride and raft trip with another ranch; however, they had already closed their ranch from raft trips for... More

We took a 1 1/2 hour ride with Anna. She was so pleasant and worked hard to make sure we were happy. The horses were tame and well looked after. We had a very inexperienced rider with us who was scared and our "wrangler" was very patient with him. The views were wonderful. We went back to pet the new... More

Great experience! Julie, the wrangler was great and the horses were well behaved. We took the 2 hour ride and should have gone for the half day. Scenery was awesome as was the rest of our group. Highly recommend.

I have ridden at Jake's horses 4 times with friends and family. Every time has been a fun adventure. They are affordable and accommodating. We have gone for rides in winter, spring and summer. If you get a chance to go in the winter it is real treat. The landscape is beautiful with all the snow. Russ has been our... More

Had a great time! Great people ! Very accomadating and very reasonable! We rode in the beautiful scenic Big Sky countryside. Had a pleasant guide who was very knowledgeable about the wilderness area. Would definitely rebook.

Called to set up a ride with my family, Was treated like I was trying to other them by giving them my business. Went elsewhere fast.

The horses and wranglers here are unpredictable. The horses threw three of my friends to the ground and two of these riders ended up in the hospital. I suspect that a seasoned rider may not have had the same results but I would be very careful riding these trail worn animals.
