The Guided Horseback Day Trip In Montana That Will Take Your Summer To The Next Level
If you’ve ever been horseback riding, you know how relaxing and fun it can be, especially when you’re trotting through some of Montana’s most stunning scenery. This summer, book a tour with Paintbrush Adventures and you can ride through the beautiful Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness for hours. And no worries if you’re not an equestrian – your tour will be completely guided.
Paintbrush Adventures is a licensed guided company owned by a 5th generation ranching family that loves Montana life.
Backcountry guide Wanda Wilcox and her family own The Barron Ranch. Wanda is a bit of a local celebrity -- she was recognized by the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, and there's even a documentary about her called 'Kinship With the Land'.
The ranch is located in the small town of Absarokee, which is where the guided horseback tours depart from.
The ranch offers cabin rentals and working ranch vacations for those who'd like to stay and experience ranch life firsthand.
You can choose between a guided horseback ride that lasts one hour, two hours, or all day.
The experience includes a picnic lunch, and you'll be surrounded by the most breathtaking scenery.
Feeling bold? Paintbrush Adventures even offers a Saddle to Paddle experience, which combines horseback riding and whitewater rafting.
Each tour is customized to the needs and desires of the rider, and this is the perfect experience for the adventurous.
As you traipse through the Absaroka-Beartooth wilderness, you never know what you'll see.
Spotting wildlife like deer, elk, foxes, coyotes, and moose is quite common.
Come see why people who book these rides call the experience 'a magical trip' and 'a unique adventure I'll remember for a lifetime.'
Whether you've never been on the back of a horse or you're a regular rider, turning over the reigns to a professional and enjoying a relaxing guided hike will be a blast.
This is such a beautiful part of Montana, and there's no better way to see it.
Rates range from $40 for an hour to $110 for the Saddle to Paddle adventure.
Address: 86 North Stillwater Road, Absarokee, Montana, 59001
