“Not Your Typical Guided Trail Ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

As an avid trail rider when on vacation I try to book a trail ride in the area. I booked a two hour ride at Mill Iron Ranch. Even though I get to see new scenery, most of the guided rides I have been on are boring. That definitely was not the case at Mill Iron Ranch. The horses were in great condtion, the scenery was breathtaking, and Sadee, our guide, was very imformative and friendly. Everyone at the ranch was most accommodating. They made the entire group feel "right at home". Also it was heartwarming to hear that most of the horses are born, raised, and live out their lives on the ranch. If you are anywhere near Jackson Hole, WY and have any desire to ride a horse I highly reccommend Mill Iron Ranch.

“Great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Did the morning ride with coby one of the best rides I have been on.they start by matching you up with the right horse which are very well trained. You go up 2000 ft to a great view of the Jackson hole area . If you do this ride you must take a camera the pictures will be great. Hopefully we can do the dinner next time

“Highlight of our trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This place is simply outstanding, The ride was spectacular (there was even a rainbow when we got on top!), the dinner was delicious (Get the steak. Just do it.), and the family running the entire operation (for five generations!) could not have been nicer and more hospitable. They even had a birthday cake and candles, since it was my birthday. We will return many times for sure!!

“Best part of our family vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

This was an absolutely amazing experience! After we paid and signed a single piece of paper we were on the horses. A few simple suggestions of how to ride and up the mountain we went. Our guide was a serious cow-girl and knew her stuff. The horses were all well trained but would take direction from us if given. We had 7, 8 and 11 year-olds on their own horses. The climb took us to the top of a huge mountain so we could see out to an amazing view.

Best part - when we got back she told us the group just behind us was followed by a bear and their guide had his gun out. First - cool that that could happen, but second - cool that she knew all this and didn't let on while we were up there and freak anyone out. She said she saw the fresh scatt and prints (which is even cooler that she knew such stuff). Very very real and authentic and didn't feel touristy at all. They know their stuff and do it well. Horses were all well groomed and in great shape.

“great ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

Went on the four hour ride with Justin and it was spectacular. He was capable, knowledgeable , and careful. The ride was not for the "faint of heart" but we climbed to nearly 10 K feet. The scenery was worth the trip. We went on 3 rides with other ranches and this was clearly the best.
