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.  Bald Eagles, Red Tail Hawks, Sandhill Cranes and a variety of water fowl are numerous here during the spring.   Whitetail deer, coyote, fox and beaver are often seen.

The ride is paced at a leisurely walk.  There are beautiful vistas of the Bridger Range, Hyalites and Spanish Peaks.

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.

We have an age limit of 12 and a weight limit of 230 lbs. We are strictly non-smoking on the entire premises.  Please read the ‘Booking Conditions’ page for more information before calling.

The ride is one to two hours long.   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.

RATES:   One Hour: $80.   One and a half Hours: $90.  Two Hours: $100 per rider. 


We are open Monday through Saturday.  Generally we take out rides at 10am and 1pm.

The Sandhill Cranes, Canadian Geese, Mallards, Wood Ducks and Wild Turkeys are nesting.  Whitetail does are birthing fawns.

The river bottom is a beautiful verdant green. Chokecherry bushes are in bloom and the fragrance is delightful.

The Gallatin River is flowing high enough with spring runoff that we are unable to reach some of our bridal trails across the river many days, so June rides are generally limited to one and a half hours.
