Giddy Up

​There’s nothing like exploring Big Sky Country on the back of a horse to bring you back to your Western roots and see the Big Sky from a whole new viewpoint.

Not only is it the quintessential Western way to travel, but it’s also an exciting way to get further into the backcountry. Hop into the saddle with one of the area’s outfitters, and head out for half or full-day journey into the wilderness in both summer and winter. With trails for all skill levels, experienced wranglers can explain the basics to beginners and explore more exciting terrain with advanced riders.
