Horseback riding for the family! Go on a half day ride near the Continental Divide, come back and eat your lunch and then for no extra charge go fishing in one of the private ponds here at the ranch. Wildlife is seen on nearly every ride and you'll love the great western atmosphere. Be sure and bring you camera!

I've been riding horses near Island Park each summer since I was a boy and I've never been more impressed than I was at Eagle Ridge Ranch last week. We rented 24 horses for our family reunion (ages 2-71) and loved the pre-ride activities (swimming, rope swing, kayaking, etc), the actual horseback ride, and the dinner afterwards. Beautiful scenery and... More

We took our family of 7, who ranged in age from 3-52. The owners matched each rider to a horse. The ride was beautiful through flat land as well as woods. Cowboy Mitch was funny and made sure everyone on our ride was comfortable. He even carried our grand daughter with him when she got tired of riding with her... More

This was a great Ranch. They custom pick your horse for you. The guide we had took our group off the normal trails a bit because it was so dry and dusty. All the ranch hands were personable, helpful, and friendly. We had people from Italy in our group that didn't speak English. They made sure that they all understood... More

We did the late afternoon horseback ride and dinner. We had the best time! The employees were super friendly and the scenery was beautiful. Our 6 and 9 year olds loved it!!

We had 3 children, ages 11,11 and 16. The horses were beautiful and loved by all staff. Porter, our guide, was great! You can easily feel his passion for horses and that way of life. He connects with smaller riders to put to rest any fears they may have. His calmness and proficiency on a horse came into play when... More

Great experience for everyone. They worked hard to accommodate our tight schedule and our guide was great! Spent time with each rider during the ride, took us "off the trail". Beautiful day and a lot of fun!

My parents, 3 kids (ages 8, 11, 13) and I all thoroughly enjoyed our day at Eagle Ridge Ranch! Be sure to bring swim suits for kayaking, paddle boarding, rope-swinging, fishing...and if you can, book the dinner after the 4:00 ride. We spent a little over 8 hrs and wish we had rented a cabin to stay longer. The trail... More

Our trip was perfect! We took the evening ride with dinner. My 5 year & 7 year old with NO EXPERIENCE rode all by themselves with no problems. They give a mini lesson before even getting on how what to do and not do. I rode a few times before and my house, Willie, basically did everything. Very good horse.... More

Our great experience started with the ease of scheduling our visit with Tami. We had a wide variety of ages in our group, including a couple of toddlers that easily rode double with their parent. A couple of the children were hesitant to ride, but the staff quickly put them at ease. The staff was also very knowledgeable about each... More

The grounds of the ranch are gorgeous and seeing it on horseback is the way to go. Our guide Travis was really friendly and great to talk to. If you regularly ride horses this ride might seem slow paced, but it still was one of the highlights of my trip!
