Horseback Vacations in Montana Mountains...

....Unforgettable Mountain Adventures
with Monte's Guiding & Mountain Outfitting
You will cross mountain meadows full of every kind of wildflower nature can display in spring.  You will be following the route taken by western Indians for centuries in their annual search for the buffalo.  And always, you'll be surrounded by Montana sky; vast and ever blue during the days, dark velvet studded with thousands of stars at night.  If you are fortunate to witness a mountain thunder shower, you will have experienced one of nature's most profound spiritual events.  This is the land Ivan Doig wrote about in his best-seller, This House of Sky; when you've been here, you will find new meaning in that title.

Choose your horseback vacation: We offer a standard mountain camping trip lasting three days and two nights or camping trips can be customized to your specifications.  Fishing is available on all camping trips.  Daytime activities are up to you.  Explore on horseback, fish, hike, watch the wildlife, pick flowers or huckleberries - whatever gives you an enjoyable and relaxing day.

We provide gentle horses with all the equipment for riding.  You do not have to be an experienced rider.  Your horse is used to the mountains, and will take good care of you.  A wrangler is riding with you at all times, and is responsible for the care of your horse.

We have dry and comfortable camps set up for you.  We do the cooking.  You bring your own sleeping bag and pad, plus clothes.  Be sure to bring a warm jacket and a rain slicker, as well as personal toiletries and a flashlight.  Bring a collapsible fishing pole if you plant to fish.  Bring plenty of film for your camera!

Our mountain horseback trip are designed for families or small groups.  We ride in the Big Belt and Elkhorn Mountains of southwest Montana.  These mountains were part of the main hunting grounds of most Northern Rocky Mountain Indian tribes.  The early fur trappers and gold prospectors traveled them in search of their fortunes.  The high country today is much the same as it was then.  The Big Belts and the Elkhorns are home to some of the most plentiful and varied wildlife populations in Montana.  The Elkhorns are the first nationally designated Wildlife Management Area.  From the foothills to the highest mountain peaks, you'll enjoy breathtaking scenery and some really fun riding.  When we ride across Mount Edith, the highest peak in the Big Belts, you'll be able to see other mountain ranges that are over a hundred miles away.  You'll never forget the marvelous view.

We are not planning any Pack Trips in 2014
