Horseback Riding in Yellowstone

Horseback riding may be the best way to experience the wilds and scenery of Yellowstone.  Starting from Gardiner, Montana at the park’s north entrance, Yellowstone Roughriders, a company operating in Gardiner, will take you for half- or full-day rides in the park. Overnight pack trips and drop camps are another option if back to nature is of your liking. Half-day rides are only $120 per person.

Motorized travel is the most common way to see Yellowstone, but, even better, Yellowstone Roughriders offers the ultimate Yellowstone experience. (406) 559-0969.

Horseback riding in Yellowstone goes back as early as the late 1800s.  A most interesting account of such is chronicled in a book Through the Yellowstone Park on Horseback, written by George Wingate in 1886.  Aside from the horseback riding adventure of Wingate, with his wife and daughter, this book is a nice historical account of Yellowstone travel in the early days of the park. An enjoyable read.

The Internet Archive has online version of the full book (best read on iPad or a desktop):   Through the Yellowstone Park on Horseback.
