On our guided tours, we'll treat you to a leisurely trek through the Montana countryside - atop the area's distinctive rimrocks, through ponderosa pines and fields full of wildflowers, mule deer and wild turkeys. We'll show you spectacular views of five different mountain ranges and a unique perspective of the city. Please email for more information. Please note that we are a full-time ranch, part-time trail riding outfit so advanced reservations are required. We do not keep our horses saddled in the corral & ready to go! If we don't answer the phone, we may be out on a ride or working so please leave a message. Season runs April thru October, weather permitting. « less

This was an incredible way to see the beautiful landscape of Montana. The horses were bombproof and Theresa was a very knowledgeable guide - a true cowgirl! She made everyone feel relaxed and was so easy to talk to. She was very aware to make sure the tack fit comfortably once the ride began and gave helpful hints along the... More

Just spent an excellent afternoon on a trail ride at the Bitter Creek. Theresa was a wonderful host. The horses are well maintained and everything is just as you would expect from a well managed outfit such as this. We will return to check if Steve has remembered his Welsh alphabet!!!

Awesome service by the company. The horses were beautiful and very kind. The trail taken had amazing cliff views of the west and there was great history of the land. If we travel back to Billings, this would be the first thing we would do (again).

Passing through Billings. Found Bitter Creek on tripadvisor. Teresa did an excellent job of making us comfortable on the horses and as a guide along the scenic trail. Great views of the land. I would recommend calling or email for reservations. But sometimes she can fit people in like she did for us. September and October with cooler temps are... More

Our trip to the Wild West took in Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana and Yellowstone. The time spent here was the highlight out of a trip of highlights. Why? Quite simply we had the chance to engage with the countryside on beautiful well-kept horses, take in the views and learn about the area with our fantastic guide and owner Theresa! Nothing... More

I have gone horseback riding at Bitter Creek on 5 separate occasions mixing 1 hour rides with 2 hour rides. I have never gone the same way twice and the landscape is something to behold. It is all private land and quite an experience with the views of 5 mountain ranges and the rock formations on the property. The guide's... More

I contacted Theresa via email to set up our trail ride, but I apparently forgot to ever respond in kind to her response to confirm the appointment. Even though she wasn't expecting us because I hadn't gotten back to her, she graciously took us out on a wonderful ride! The horses were just great, and the view was fantastic. Theresa... More

This review is long overdue, but better late then never! My friend and I made a cross country trip from the west coast to the east coast in the fall of 2012 (I selected July 2013 because that was as far back as the options were). We wanted to experience what this beautiful country had to offer. While we were... More

I arrived in Billings and found out that "Custer's Last Stand Re-enactment" was to take place on Friday giving me an extra day in Billings. I searched trip adviser and found Bitter Creek Outfitters. I just drove a few miles out of town to the ranch and was on a horse within minutes, without a booking. It turned out to... More
