MEDICINE LAKE OUTFITTERS offers guided horseback riding on two hundred acres along the Gallatin River just minutes from Bozeman. Our bridle trails pass through a Cottonwood Forest that is wildlife rich.
The ride is paced at a leisurely walk. The trails cross the river onto large islands in several places. There are beautiful vistas of the Bridger Range, Hyalites and Spanish Peaks.
Bald Eagles, Hawks, Sandhill Cranes, and a variety of Water Fowl and Song Birds live here in prolific numbers. Whitetail Deer, Moose, Coyote, Fox and River Otter are often seen.
We offer instruction in horseback riding for those who need it. We do our best to match horse to rider according to the rider’s skill level.
Generally our party size is from four to six riders. If you have at least four in your group we will be happy to book the ride for your party exclusively.
You will want to bring a jacket, ball cap or wide brimmed hat with a stampede string, water bottle and sunglasses. Most folks also bring a camera. You should wear long pants and your heavier shoes or boots.
We will provide saddle bags and a rain slicker. If you have rain gear you like please feel free to bring your own. We have hooded stirrups so western riding boots are not a requirement.
Cost – $60. per rider. Two hours.
