We were really looking forward this experience and it fell a little flat. For inexperienced riders we felt that the wranglers only gave a very brief intro on how to guide the horses and they seemed to get frustrated with the riders when the horses weren't following their cues. We did the 2 hour trail ride in Many Glacier which did get a little long by the end. You are in the wilderness and the trails aren't very well maintained. A horse on our ride even fell through a hole on a bridge with its back leg. Maybe because it was the end of the season but the wranglers seemed not very enthusiastic and seemed to just want to get to get the ride over with. It was a nice ride overall but more so because of the environment and horses.

We rode out of the Lake McDonald location and the girls that work there were amazing. We arrived a little early, as a buffer for parking and walking to the location, but it was so easy to find. All of the staff were extremely pleasant and talkative during our trail ride. The horses were all amazing and well behaved, and our guides were extremely knowledgeable on Glacier Park history and fun facts. I definitely recommend them if you are into seeing the scenery via horseback!

Overall, my family enjoyed the horseback ride just outside of Glacier National Park however I was hoping that it would be more scenic than it was considering how close to GNP we were. If the scenery is not important to you and you are simply looking for a nice trail ride through wooded areas, this is a great company to go with. But, if you're looking to enjoy some beautiful Montana scenery while on horseback, you may want to look elsewhere.

We had a great time on the horseback trail ride, we did the cracker flats trail in east glacier which had pretty scenery. The horses were great and the guides were friendly and engaging. We all wanted to do it again!

Very accommodating and knowledgeable guide and truly a great active outdoor experience! If you like a good uphill trek to a beautiful waterfall (and a way to burn the kiddo's energy...), this is for you!
