Saddle Up – Horseback Ride


Partial Day Tour

Whoa partner! Take the time to “slow down and smell the sagebrush” as you and your horse mosey along the trail. Hour-long and two hour-long horseback rides are offered throughout summer.

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 area 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 confused with the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon is not visible from the trail.)

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.

Note: To ride a horse a person must be at least 8 years old, 48 inches tall, weigh under 240 lbs, and understand English. Ages 8-17 must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or over. Anyone under AGE 18 must wear a helmet.

For the safety of our guests and employees, management reserves the right to cancel and fully refund any corral activity due to severe weather or the forecast of severe weather. Thank you for your understanding.
