Saddle Up


Partial Day Tour

Whoa partner! Take the time to “slow down and smell the sagebrush” as you and your horse mosey along the a trail. Hour-long and two hour-long horseback rides are offered throughout summer. (To ride a horse a person must be at least 8 years old, 48 inches tall and weigh under 240 lbs, understand English, ages 8-17 must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or over). Reserve in advance.

Roosevelt 1 Hour Ride:
This ride goes through sagebrush flats along Garnet Hill. It then goes up a hill and across a stream from a view of Pleasant Valley and Hellroaring Mountain. It loops around and heads back to the corral through the other side of the Valley.

Roosevelt 2 Hour Ride:
This ride heads up a wooded hillside behind the corral. At the top of the hill, the ride goes through sagebrush flats and meadows. It then reenters a wooded area and travels along Lost Canyon and over Lost Creek. It then climbs up to and around Lost Lake, coming out by the Petrified Tree. The ride goes through Pleasant Valley on the way back to the corral. Horseback rides are also available to the Old West Dinner Cookout.

Canyon 1 Hour Ride:
This ride goes through an open meadow adjacent to the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone (not visible from the trail). The ride follows Cascade Creek through a wooded area and returns to the corral through a series of meadows and pine forests.

Canyon 2 Hour Ride:
This ride leaves the corral, heading into timber and crossing a large meadow. A short stretch of our ride traverses through an are of forest regrowth following the legendary 1988 Yellowstone Fire. The ride continues along the rim of the Cascade Canyon through which Cascade Creek flows. A nice view into the canyon is possible from Coyote Slide. The ride returns to the corral through a series of meadows. (Cascade Canyon is not to be confuse with the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon is not visible from the trail.)

Wonderful ride at Canyon!

Had a wonderful time with the family on the Canyon 1-hour ride, the views were incredible, the horses were great, and our Wranglers, Nathan and Casey, were absolutely outstanding in every way! Me, my wife and kids all had a great time! definitely recommend!

Fantastic Experience

I had a wonderful ride at Roosevelt corrals! My wranglers, Hannah, Katie, and Alex were fantastic and really kind. I don't recall Katie "barking orders", but she kept the ride ordered and safe. I would love to come back next year!

"Roosevelt 2 Hour Ride"

Our family(My husband, my 9 years old daughter and I) were enjoying the horseback with "Roosevelt 2 Hour Ride" program so much. We had that activity on Aug 17, 2015 and this activity becomes our favorite activity now. We love that adventure and that was the first time for us to ride the horse and we're very very impress with every wranglers, staffs there. We miss three horse that we're riding "Goblin, Gus and Camanche", they're good horses.Thank you so much to Goblin, Gus, Camanche and every wranglers and staffs there.

My family had a wonderful ride, but 1 complaint, I know Katie means well but she needs to let people enjoy the ride instead of barking orders. Almost constantly until she moved from the back to the front of the line.
