We are closed until spring arrives to stay.  

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, Wild Turkeys and a variety of water fowl are numerous here.   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 brief 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 can be booked as either one and a half or 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. 


Winter has been mild with the exception of a couple of short spells of Arctic Air Incursion. One of those cold spells produced a wind chill of -67F in mid-January. 
The snowpack in the mountains averages about 75% of normal for the date.  Snow in the valley comes and goes.

We are hoping to be open on a weather dependent basis by May 1st. 

We can take summer ride reservations by email. Taking care of livestock and facilities in winter doesn’t leave  a lot of time for phone calls.
