Owner description: 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!

We had so much fun, it was a great experience. There were three of us (one adult, two teenagers) and had never been on a horse. The guides were very informative, patient, helpful, and friendly. The horses were so tame and the trail was beautiful! We even saw a young moose and deer along the way! Recommend especially for any "first-timers".

After a awesome trip to Eagle Ridge Ranch to horseback ride, I would recommend to anyone going through Yellowstone to take the time and go on a horseback ride at Eagle Ridge Ranch with Yellowstone Horses. The experience and sights are so much better sitting atop a horse. With very knowledgable and professional staff just added to the experience. We were simply going to go for a horse ride only to learn Eagle Ridge Ranch offers so much more. My children loved paddling around one of the ponds in a paddle boat. We had such a great time we are planning our next vacation around the horse ride.

We had a great trip to Eagle Ridge Ranch to horseback ride. The guides are very polite, patient, and take the time to ensure beginners are comfortable with the horse and commands before heading out. The grounds are beautiful. Our guide, Porter, was awesome the whole trip. He asked folks about where they were from, how long they were staying, etc. Just a great guy. Plus, my five-year-old never rode a horse alone before and he was AMAZING with him. I would highly recommend this place for families most definitely.

The highlights were the guides (Porter very polite/Tanner has a great sense of humor) and the beautiful grounds. Unfortunately, we didn't see any wildlife :(

After horseback riding, guests are welcome to fish and boat/canoe. (Life jackets are provided and must be worn.) We did take a boat across the little lake and caught a tad pole, but skipped the fishing. This could easily be a 5 or 6 hour trip, but ours latest about 3.

They do offer a bottled water after the ride, but be sure to bring ANY snacks and/or extra drinks because it does get warm out there.

Only negative: If you want to try archery for an additional fee, be sure to ask before heading out. We had to pass on this because there was no staff at the barn to assist.

I went horseback riding with a large group and was very impressed with the experience! We had mostly inexperienced riders and the horses were well behaved and the ride was nice. There was beautiful scenery and the guides were so attentive and fun. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to experience horses for the first time, see the beauty of Idaho and have a great ride!

We had an amazing time....I highly recommend the Dutch Oven ride. The food was amazing and the horse back riding was incredible......this is a must...you get to see beautiful country while riding on very tame horses. All I can say is WOW....
