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

We were travelling with two children, one who has cerebral palsy, and Canyon Adventures did everything possible to make sure that our son could go on a ride (another outfitter had turned us down earlier that day). They made sure we had a rider who held on to my son's horse's lead, and he managed to stay on without any... More

Everything was positive from the explanation of the trail and the genuine concern of the proprietor to make sure we understood where we were going and how to operate the ATV"s (Yes we are rookies). We would go back!

We had a group of 15 and they were able to accommodate us. 7 adults and 8 kids ranging from 7 yrs old to 17. We all had an enjoyable time. Our 3 guides were very nice and knowledgable. My 9 yr old son wanted to go back the next day, however most of the adults were a little sore.... More

These people are pros and fun too!! We went with them twice during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed our guides and horses. We had an absolutely great time and would definitely use Canyon Adventures again. They also have four wheeler and snowmobile rentals and I wouldn't hesitate there either. Very, very pleased. Great talking to the young wranglers and the... More

Kelsey took my son, daughter and I on a great ride. My daughter has not been on a horse in ten years and was nervous, but did just fine. We crossed a river which was very cool, up through the woods, and back through a valley. Easy ride, beautiful scenery, and pleasant company. Highly recommend. Also, no riding on the... More
