The Winter Horseback Riding Trail In Idaho That’s Pure Magic
Horseback riding is the perfect American pastime, especially here in Idaho, where our diverse terrain makes an ideal place to embrace your love for the equestrian and western lifestyle. From stays at luxuriously authentic dude and guest ranches to one-of-a-kind backcountry trail riding experiences, there’s something truly magical about enjoying a simple ride through Idaho’s glorious landscape on horseback. While many of Idaho’s top lodges and ranches only offer trail riding as a warm weather activity, there is one unique partnership that will allow you to experience the delightful snowy countryside from atop a graceful equine once a year as you move the horses to their winter pasture. And you’re in luck — the time to book for next year is now!
