“Great horses, great guides and a great experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2010

Ever have someone who is a tenderfoot and wants to try horseback riding? Jake's Horses is an excellent treat. They are located just south of the Big Sky turnoff on 191 and you have to look hard after you turn off the highway to make sure you don't miss the parking lot which is down a slope from the side road you use to get to it. The folks who run this are excellent and helpful. The day we rode, it was threatening rain, but we went anyway and had a grand time. The horses are all friendly and the staff tries to do everything they can to make your trip a pleasure. We were going to do a two hour trip, but elected a one hour trip due to the weather. We would definitely recommend Jake's Horses -- we had a great time and think you will to! They collect the fee at the end of the ride and, while I did not ask, I don't think they take credit cards so you may want to come prepared or ask. We paid in cash and added a gratuity for the guide as he was so good in keeping things organized. I might add that we felt the prices were extremely reasonable for the value received.

“A Wonderful Experience !!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2010

We took a 3 hour trail ride on a recent Sunday. It was great. It was obvious safety was paramount. Christina our wrangler was magnificent. She took pictures of everyone for us. She keep check on everyone throughout the ride. The horses were all very well mannered. The trail really showed off beauty and variety of the landscape. We can't wait to come back.

“A fun family posse!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2010

This was a very fun trailride for all 5 of us. We took the steak frye dinner trip, rode for a few hours and stopped for a real cowboy campfire dinner. Our guides were very experienced ranchers, and made it a fun trip. We rode to the top of a mountain, and then down, across a river and through the woods. The horses were perfect dispositions for all of us. We will definitely do it again.
