We had a great time! When we arrived, Cecil and Alex had the horses, "Sweetie" and "Deuce", saddled-up and ready to go. To anyone who is hesitant to take this trip due to inexperience, let me mention that the last (and only) time my wife and I have ridden horses was on a guided trail ride over 20 years ago! First, we were briefed on what to expect during the ride and Alex gave us basic horseback riding instructions. We mounted the horses and rode to a mountaintop to view some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen! The horses were well trained and gentle, exceeding our expectations! The 2-hour ride was perfect for us. Thanks again Cecil and Alex for helping to make our Montana experience unforgettable!

We had a great time at Artemis even though our plans changed and we did not get to ride. Cecil and Chuck took great care of us, we went hiking and had Chuck's great pork roast dinner to look forward to. Alex was a welcome female addition to the dinner conversation and our Michegonian friends were fun to chat with. As said, our plans changed and riding did not go but we still had a good experience and highly recommend ArtemismAcres

Called Cecil & he scheduled for a midday ride, giving us instruction as to how to get to the location of his business. Upon arrival he & his wrangler Tyler had horses ready & waiting. Following a short pre-ride instruction we were mounted up & on the trail. Beautiful horses & scenery winding through the Montana countryside to an area overlooking the valley below. What a view! Patient & attentive to our safety & enjoyment, Tyler checked our saddles to be sure we were ready for the ride back to the barn. The wife & i had a wonderful horseback ride.

If you are looking to ride a bit while in Kalispell, then you need to see Cecil. His horses are beautiful and gentle, and his crew is informative and professional. My 11 year old daughter and I enjoyed the two hour ride this morning which takes you through the woods to the top of a mountain with breath taking views of the valley. The lupines, indian paintbrush, and wild roses were all blooming. Our guides, Alex and Connor, were wonderful and we were escorted the entire way by Alex's adorable dog, Marty. You cant do any better, so just call them now!

We have had the pleasure of spending a lof of summer afternoons with friends at Artemis Acres.
Cecil Noble and his crew of wranglers are friendly and patient with riders. The horses are well trained and in great shape. The vistas breathtaking. To complete the experience you should include the steak BBQ!
