This was a surprise and a delight! We decided to do a horseback ride but I was looking for a company that actually took great care of their horses! Loved everything about this company! The horses were in great condition and our guide Chelsea clearly had a ton of love and interest in her horses! We had a wonderful time... More

Matt & Kristy were great guides on our horseback riding trip! We had two families with six kids (ages 6, 10, and 12 who were all rookie riders). We had a great time crossing the Gallatin River and riding our horses up into the mountains. The horses were easy to handle and lots of fun. We combined this with Geyser... More

Canyon Adventures was very accommodating for our group, as there were 10 of us, and made it possible for us all to ride together as a family. Our two guides were very friendly and knowledgeable about horses and helped us enjoy our experience riding to the fullest extent. I had never ridden a horse before, yet I never felt unsafe... More

Rude, obnoxious and condescending. Thats the first three words that come to mind when thinking of Canyon Adventures. My family wanted to take a 1/2 day ATV tour so we started making the rounds of phone calls in the Big Sky, Bozeman and West Yellowstone area. I called Canyon Adventures first. Ed (the owner) answered and I explained we were... More

We really enjoyed our two hour horse ride here and highly recommend them for your Montana horse back riding experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My parents who were celebrating their 50th on this trip loved the staff who really made them feel comfortable and safe! We even got to cross the Gallatin River going out and coming... More

While in Big Sky we were looking for numerous ways to enjoy the beautiful countryside. We've hiked, biked, and drove our car all over. But our family's favorite experience so far (we are doing a zipline/rafting trip tomorrow) was horse riding. We aren't expert riders by any means. We've been on two or three rides in the past 5 years... More

I went horseback riding with my 6 year old son. Neither of us had rode a horse before and this exceed our expectations. The horses were well trained and absolutely beautiful. Within a few minutes of riding we were crossing the Gallatin River… I never dreamed I’d ever be crossing a river on a horse with my 6 year old.... More

We're a family of four with young teenagers from the city so horseback riding is exciting and scary for us. The owner answered the phone and told us we could handle this riding. They gave us an experienced guide(Meghan) who paired us all up with horses that we could handle comfortably and off we went. The guide had us crossing... More

Canyon Adventures is probably Big Sky's best kept secret and we love riding with them as we did again this morning. Although primarily known for their snowmobiling in the winter, this well run establishment is a local institution that doesn't brag on itself, but should. The horses are personally owned, not leased, and very well treated. The equipment (saddles, helmets,... More

We discovered CA via multiple recommendations and "shopped around" a bit via phone prior to deciding on CA. I'll start by saying we made the BEST decision. CA has a very laid back yet professional and clearly knowledgeable and dependable staff. We went on the 3 hour horseback riding experience. Quickest 3 hours of my life. We left on time... More
