The Eagle Ridge Ranch is a working cattle ranch and commercial horseback rides have been offered for over 20 years. However, there is more to the ranch than just horseback riding and grazing cows. Also available at the ranch are cabin rentals, complimentary fishing in the ranch's private fishing ponds, and canoeing and paddling. In addition, the ranch is centrally located to guests staying in both Island Park, Idaho and West Yellowstone, Montana. The Eagle Ridge Ranch is conveniently located just 30 minutes South of Yellowstone National Park and ten minutes North of Last Chance in Island Park. Many guests even come horseback riding with us from Rexburg, Ashton, and Idaho Falls Idaho as well as Big Sky, Bozeman, and Ennis Montana. The Ranch is easy to find, yet off the beaten path enough that the nearly 2,000 acres it comrprises is still in pristine condition.
The Shotgun Valley area was a favorite summer and fall hunting location for the indians, but the winters were too harsh; the indians went to lower locations. Actual obsidian arrow heads can still be found at the ranch!
In the late 1990's, a real fancy rodeo arena was constructed and semi-pro rodeos were offered every week at the ranch. Because of insurance complicatons the rodeo arena has been removed, there are still weekly rodeos offered at the Meadow View Ranch in upper Island Park. Check out our links to area businesses for more information.
Today, the ranch is still considered a working cattle ranch. Thousands of cattle graze every summer and can be seen with their young calves.
The ranch has several lakes, ponds, and natural streams. The water coupled with the beautiful mountainous background make for incredible views and photo opportunities.
The horses at the ranch are incredible. We take extra precaution in choosing only horses that we can completely trust with our guests. We have horses for every level of ability! We have had many of our horses for several years, and they have proven themselves through and through.
Yellowstone Horses is not a huge franchise business. We are selective in our guides, and and they thoroughly enjoy working at the ranch. We dedicate ourselves every summer in helping Yellowstone tourists create memories that they will never forget. We strive to give every guest an incredible experience that will be one of the highlights of their trips! Our methods over the years have proven to be very successful.
