Christie was a great horseback riding guide! She engaged the teen/tween kids right away and made the adults feel comfortable. Even though the ride was for only one hour, it was plenty of time to cross the river and ride up a short hill to look for wildlife. We all enjoyed it! Highly recommended.

We had a great two-hour afternoon ride with Canyon Adventures and explored the beauty of Big Sky with our guides, Christie and Leah, who were tremendous. They were super smart about the animals, terrain, history and just a downright joy. They also made me feel 100% confident in the safety for my kids. We saw deer, coyote, and views of... More

When you book the Paddle/Saddle excursion through Geyser Whitewater (1/2 mile down Rt 191) the Saddle portion is run through Canyon Adventures. My mom does not ride horses and is very hesitant to get near a horse, but thanks to our guide, Kelsey, who guided my mom's horse through half the trip, she was able to participate with us. This...

Our family experienced our first horseback riding adventure in Montana with Canyon Adventures and it was wonderful. The views are so very pretty it's breathtaking. The 2 hour time passed quickly and we all felt so happy we decided to do this together. The staff very helpful and friendly and the horses were great!

If you're looking for a peaceful easy ride with the family, this is the one for you. We did an hour long day ride with the family. Leaving the corral within minutes you cross the river then ride out across the beautiful Gallatin River valley up into the hills. When I say you cross the river, I don't mean on... More

Our 2 hour horseback tour was exceptional! Our group consisted of all ages and experience levels and we could not have asked for a better experience for everyone! Kids were beyond excited and all expectations were exceeded with the ride across the Gallatin River and into the foothills. Views were spectacular! Our guides, Kelsey & Izzy were fabulous! All the...

My daughter had a blast, they made sure she was safe, and hooked her up with an excellent horse. She had Jenny, I had Fremont, and the hubbs had junior! Fremont and Junior... More
