Bitter Creek Outfitters is a family-operated business providing scenic, guided horseback trail rides on the outskirts of Billings, Montana. We'll treat you to a leisurely trek through the Montana countryside - atop the area's distinctive rimrocks, through ponderosa pines and fields full of wildflowers, mule deer and wild turkeys. We'll show you spectacular views of five different mountain ranges and a unique perspective of the city. AGE, HEIGHT/WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS APPLY. PLEASE SEE WEBSITE FOR DETAILS. We are a full-time ranch, part-time trail riding outfit so advanced reservations are required. We do not keep our horses saddled in the corral & ready to go! If we don't answer the phone, we may be out on a ride or working so please leave a message. Season runs late April thru October, weather permitting. We schedule our starting at either 8 or 9am, 7 days/week, and avoid afternoon rides during peak summer heat but we can be flexible with your travel plans. Let us know what works best & we'll do our best to fit you in!

I had never ridden a horse before going. They have calm horses, so it was no problem. The people were very friendly and the scenery was fabulous.
