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. We will need a rider profile before we can tell you if we are able to take your party out.  This is best provided by email using our ‘Contact’ page.

The ride is one and a half 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:  $120 per rider. 


We won’t be taking out rides until the trails dry out, and staff has had adequate time to tune up the horses.

We anticipate being open on a limited, weather dependent, basis June 1st. 

Spring weather is unpredictable.  It would be best if you would hold off making reservations until two or three days before you want to ride.  Then we can get an accurate weather forecast.
