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.
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..
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)
Age range, type of group
There is no weight limit. Pre-school children are allowed to ride on the horse with an adult (no extra charge) and school age children will be offered a horse of their own. We have horses for all levels of skill including no experience at all. We love families and we will gear our rides to match the guest's level of experience.
rates: Half-day ride $67.60
Evening ride: $57.60
Most credit cards are accepted
If so desired, we have hats, coats, and chaps. If you have your own warm clothing, including gloves and rain gear, we suggest you bring it; the weather can change within a few minutes on the Continental Divide. Come prepared to take lots of pictures! Pictures with you dressed in actual, genuine, cowboy attire will mean a lot! During June and July, insect repellent is also recommended

Every summer, on our vacation, we try to ride at three different areas that provide horseback riding. In all of our years of riding at different ranches and other horseback riding businesses, the Diamond P Ranch tops them all! We were able to watch the horses being saddled and the ranch even provided chaps and hats for those who wanted them; we did! We visited with the guides and found them to be delightful, clean-cut cowboys. Our ride was great, maybe a fraction too long, but that was because ... more
