Peaceful and Enjoyable
Aug 2021
Overall the stay at Parade Rest Ranch was exactly what we needed. A peaceful place tucked between mountain ranges with access to trails in the Gallatin National Forest. The horseback rides were amazing and are suitable for most children as well as adults. The horses and wrangles are so well trained and deal with so many obstacles I was impressed. The cabins are very rustic but clean. A small heater was all we needed in the morning to take the chill out of the air. We were in the back part of the ranch with views of the pasture and it was so peaceful to just sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. The meals for breakfast and dinner were very good and plenty of choices. We took lunch with us one day into Yellowstone and the others we were in West Yellowstone and ate in town. Another point is to listen to Marge when asking about the area and things to do. She is extremely helpful in wanting to make sure you have a good time on and off the ranch. Her suggestions worked each time we followed them. Again, a shout out to the Wranglers - they have a lot of work in managing all of those horses and riders. The horses seemed very well cared for. Another small point for ones that need to know is that I have T-mobile and had no issues and either did my kids on their phones at night ...but most times they were outside out of the cabin.

GREAT experience! Our second stay at the ranch. Rustic, clean accommodations, good food. Lead wrangler, Shane, is highly experienced and competent. Guest safety on the horses is his primary concern. He led our group twice and was very informative and attentive to riders at all times. He is patient and instructive toward children and new riders - highly recommend him! Spoke with both owners - Quint and wife Wendy. They are involved and available. Made a suggestion that was immediately acted upon. I rode the horse named Blue three times - very gentle, well trained and responsive to anyone with basic riding skills. Wonderful experience, highly recommend the Ranch!

We had a great stay at Parade Rest Guest Ranch. Absolutely everyone from the kitchen staff to the management were extremely friendly and accommodating. The horse rides and getting to know the wranglers was such a blast. Will most certainly come back again!

Two Things To Watch Out For
Jun 2021
We had a fine time and the scenery was beautiful but there are two important things you should know before booking. (1) Make sure you do NOT have the wrangler named Shane leading your group. He is rude, mean, sarcastic, and demonstrates terrible customer service. (2) Make sure you do NOT have the horse named Blue in your group. He bit the backside of the horse in front of him 4 times during our 2-hour ride. This startles the horse who got bit, making him jump and do things that are unsafe for the rider. Blue needs to be taken out of the rotation and either retrained or given a different job.

Gorgeous trail riding
Jul 2020 • Family
This ranch is nestled in a picturesque setting about 15 minutes outside of West Yellowstone. They had helpful staff and were able to accommodate our family when contacted the afternoon before. Shane is great with horses, enabled all of my kids to have a great experience (especially my 9 year old that was very fearful once the idea of horseback riding met reality). They have varying lengths of rides, Shane kept a close eye on our group from the front, and Dave at the back. The scenery was stunning and I thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Lovely log cabins
Jun 2017 • Couples
As you would expect, the log cabin rooms are a little dark but roomy. The room had all we needed for a one night stay. The morning breakfast in the dining hall was delicious and had our next day off to a great start. All the staff were happy and helpful.
