For a fantastic 1/2 day horseback trail ride in the mountains along the Continental Divide, come ride with the guides from Yellowstone Horses as they offer a family style ride that starts at the famous Eagle Ridge Ranch near Island Park, Idaho.

Active Adventure

Our rides are in the mountains of the Continental Divide separating Montana and Idaho. We provide half -day rides and an evening 2 hour trail ride. In the fall we offer a beautiful fall color trip into the mountains with emphasis on photography. Our rides start in the mountain meadows, riding along side of cattle and loose running horses; we then climb into the mountains of the Gallatin National Forest..

Typical Day

Guests arrive for the morning ride, we usually have some fun things to do while signing release forms etc. We have a short but very specific training course on horsemanship and safety. We go into the mountains trying to get back in the vacinity of 1:00 p.m. The afternoon half day ride is essentially the same as the morning ride but usually at a little slower pace. The evening ride starts at 5:00 p.m. and returns to the corrals by 7:30 p.m. On Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays there is a full fledged rodeo starting at 8:00 p.m. (must be booked separately)

    We had tons of fun, loved the people, Atmosphere, tour and especially the horses, so sweet and calm and easy to ride, there was a little boy that was about 7 years old and had never ridden before and didn't have any problems at all and loved his horse and tour! It was time very well spent with the family and great memories too, our guide even stopped for a beautiful photo opt in the meadow! Our group was quite large and our guide made it a point to talk to everyone and make sure we were all having an amazing time!!!

  • Fantastic Horseback Riding in Yellowstone

    By Fred on Apr 01, 2010

    I don't usually write reviews and stuff like that, but I Googled "horseback riding in Yellowstone" trying to find the ranch that we rode at three years ago. I found you on the first page of Google and you highlighted the ranch we were looking for. The horseback rides on this ranch are like the title says, fantastic! We too our entire family, including Granny, on a half day ride. We took lots of digital pictures thinking that wqe could throw part of them away when we reviewed them; we kept every one of them and made a slide show just of that great experience! We travel to a different location throughout the country every year. Always, if there is a horseback riding operation where we go, we include it in our vacation. Beyond a shadow of doubt, the Diamond P Ranch ranks number ONE!
