Our horseback rides are all guided, and go through miles of private timberland on both horse trails and logging roads. Though we do offer shorter lesson rides for the novice rider, our most popular ride, and the one providing the most fabulous scenery in the shortest amount of time, is our morning or afternoon ride. We also offer a half-day horseback ride, which includes a snack; and a full day trail ride, which includes a picnic lunch at a spot overlooking the Flathead Valley. The Western Barbecue Dinner ride is our personal favorite. Enjoy a late afternoon horseback ride to the mountaintop, followed by relaxing around the campfire while we prepare a traditional western barbecue.

These people will cancel on you at the last minute if they do not think you are "worth their time". Just FYI, if you are planning on going here you better have a backup plan.

Cecil and his crew were amazing again. The ride was interesting, the horses are well-cared for and gentle, and the staff is incredibly nice. The view of The Flathead Valley at the top was unparalleled. This is a must-do in Kalispell.

We had a wonderful trail ride! Myself and my four kids (ages 10 - 16) went on a two hour trail ride up to the top at a mountain with fantastic views. The guide, Alexis, was top notch and great with the kids. I was particularly impressed with how well the horses are treated here, the well thought out route,... More

This is the third time riding in Montana and Artemis Acres definitely stands above the rest. Very healthy horses that seemed well taken care of and loved. Our guide Alexis was phenomenal. Truly an enjoyable ride. We did two hour ride. Nice trails with beautiful views.

We went to Kalispell just to get away for a few days only to discover this most refreshing and wonderful way to spend an afternoon. It was truly a wonderful way to shed the cares of life and recreate the soul. You gotta try it!

My family and I went to Artemis Acres Paint Horse Ranch in July 2016 for an all-inclusive experience of the West and we got even more than we expected! I'm not sure if all the packages are the same, but as part of our admission we had a horse trail ride and dinner with entertainment. First of all let me... More

Thank you Cecil and Alexis for the highlight of our vacation. The horses were well trained and you could tell they are very well taken care of. Our four kids loved their two hours on their horses and so did my husband and I. We could have stayed all day!!! I just wish I hadn't forgotten my sunglasses in the... More

We did the two-hour trail ride with Alexis. It was my daughter's second time on a horse by herself, and Alexis did a great job making her feel comfortable. She also let her help her feed the horses afterwards, which my daughter loved. The trail was beautiful, Alexis very knowledgeable and fun, and the horses well-cared for. They provided water... More

We went on a two hour ride with Alexis, she was wonderful! I am a semi-experienced rider and this was my husband's second time on a horse! We had such a great time on the trail with Alexis, Jack and Archie (our two horses) and their dogs! Majestic views from the top and beautiful scenery throughout the ride! We were... More
