Yellowstone National Park Horseback Riding Day Trips

2021 Yellowstone Tour Schedule, very limited day ride schedule for June.

We offer exclusive horseback riding day trips in Yellowstone Park for a minimum of four guests and maximum of eight guests. Singles and couples will be mixed groups of similar riding ability and interests. Private horseback rides for groups of four or more can be arranged. The locations for these day rides will be selected based on your interests, experience level and Yellowstone trail conditions. Rides are based primarily in the Northern half of Yellowstone National Park. Yellowstone National Park Horseback Riding TourAll rides are led by the owner, Mike Thompson, to provide you the best experience for your day in Yellowstone’s Backcountry.

*Please note*

Our small groups and diverse horseback riding areas illustrate the difference between a day riding head to tail with 20 other people, being led down the same old trail for 3-4 hours; or a great day searching and exploring Yellowstone, off the beaten trail with us. Because of our excellent history of "low impact" horseback travel with Yellowstone’s back country management, we are very frequently given permission to travel into seldom seen, off trail areas of Yellowstone’s back country. Join us for a very popular and rewarding experience!

Yellowstone Horse Trip Locations:

Yellowstone Family Horse Rides: Please call or email for special rates and locationsWatching wildlife on a Yellowstone Adventure
The above locations will be available for additional day rides throughout the summer and fall. Fall is a great time for a day ride in Yellowstone as the wildlife activity increases; buffalo and elk ruts begin, the bears begin feeding more actively during the daytime, no bugs and very few people in the back country. Please contact us with your Yellowstone vacation dates and we will get you on a great day ride!


Horseback rides begin at 9:00 am, includes lunch at a great location and concludes around 3:30 PM.
