I had such a wonderful ride. I have not been on a horse in over 20 years. I felt very comfortable once on the horse and after Kelsey's refresher course on how to direct the horse. We went through several water crossings which were scary for me, but the horses handled it very well and Kelsey was there talking us... More

This was the first horseback riding experience with my 3 children, ages 10, 8 and 6 years old. They loved it and asked for more! The guides were knowledgable about the area, and very interactive with my kids. We did have to cross the Gallatin river at the beginning of the ride. The river (which was high for this time... More

We had a group of 5 adults and 3 children (ages 6, 6, and 7). One of the children had never been on a horse before. Since their were 3 young children, there were 3 guides to help pony (lead) the kids' horses. The guides did an excellent job of pairing everyone up with the horses based on experience and... More

DO NOT do business with this place. After riding your horse about 50 yards you cross the Gallatin River on horseback. One of the horses stumbled badly and our friend fell into the river. She was swept downstream and no one knew what to do. The owner, Kathy, was yelling at everyone and showed no concern for the fallen rider.... More

I like this place, set apart from the elegant surroundings of the Big Sky and Moonlight Basin Resorts, but it's not for everyone. Trail rides are in the valley that US 191 runs through, so even the scenic vistas contain lots of buildings and passing road traffic. That said, the horses are well kept and the groomers/trail guides are very... More

Four of us went horseback riding for the afternoon with Canyon Adventures. Danielle was our guide and she did a great job of leading the horses and showing us some gorgeous scenery. She was very good with the horses and was a pleasure to be with the entire afternoon. Two of our group were not seasoned riders so she selected... More

My wife and I utilized Canyon Adventures for a horse ride, and the scenery was beautiful and the direction to my wife and I (very unexperienced riders) was fantastic. The staff was accomodating and did a great job to ensure that everyone was at ease, and gave clear directions to make a safe ride.
