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 Conditionspage 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 in May and June. Beginning July 1st only the two hour ride will be available.  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:  Two Hours – $120       One and a Half – $100 per rider. 


We are open for the season.

The stark white landscape of winter has given way to the greens of spring renewal. 

Sandhill cranes and Canadian geese have come back to nest. The wild turkey toms are in bright breeding plumage and are strutting and gobbling for the hens attention. 

It feels good to be horseback in the warm spring sun again.

Come on out and ride with us.
