Wolfpack Rides
"Wolfpack" rides are unique as they are set up exclusively for your group.  

Ride exclusively with your "PacK".  Wolfpack" rides are set up  for your private group.  You won't ride with strangers or ride the same trai that is ridden everyday.  We ride a variety of mountain trails and one will be selcted to match the riding ability, interest and desires of your group. Weather conditions may also play a factor in pre-selection.  Horses are trailered to trailhead so you truly "ride the mountains of Montana". We request rider information in order to select a horse and saddle that will match the rider.  All types of riders are accommodated - beginner, intermediate, advanced, horse owners, competive riders, and even those who'd rather be fishing.  Children must be 6 or older. Riding double is NOT allowed.  Helmets are available upon request or bring your own.  .  

 
                    Wolfpack Horses
      Rides are like "Real Riding", 
not a typical head-to-tail ride.

We own our horses and do not lease them.  That way we know their training, habits and personalities. Horses are matched  to the rider's skill level and saddles are selected to match guest's physique (tall, short, etc.). This helps your ride be more personalized and comfortable.  We have raised many of the horses and they are decendents of the   Quarterhorses Shylea's  grandparents raised.  Because we do many activities with our horses -  trailriding, 4-H, rodeo, roping, barrel racing -  so the horses are responsive and energetic.  We don't have a horse or saddle in our string, that we wouldn't ride ourself...  Afterall, if we don't like the horse or saddle - why would you?.  


 Come Ride with the "Wolfpack" 
and See for Yourself!!
