Horseback riding for the family! Go on a half day ride near the Continental Divide, come back and eat your lunch and then for no extra charge go fishing in one of the private ponds here at the ranch. Wildlife is seen on nearly every ride and you'll love the great western atmosphere. Be sure and bring you camera!

The scenery in ID is something else, we decided to take a horse ride so we would get to see even more of it. The kids (6 & 7) have ridden ponies before when someone pulled them around a ring but that's about it. They really wanted to ride a horse on their own but I figured that wouldn't be... More

We try to get up to Eagle Ridge each year and the offerings just keep increasing. There are lots of activities to keep the kids busy. And the one we really enjoy every year is the trail ride. They are well organized, have an excellent selection of horses and make it an easy and fun family outing.

I went on 2 rides and I can honestly say it was the best time of my vacay. Took 2 rides, 1 I'm the afternoon with my 6 year old cousin and a party of 8 people. Travis, our guide was amazing, matching everyone perfectly with horses. The second ride was just me and my mother, at 9:50. Sadly I... More

Thanks for the great review! I'm glad you were able to ride with us twice this summer, and that you had a great experience on both rides. Zipper and Senator are both great horses! Here's a fun fact for you: Senator is an Arabian horse. Typically, we do not like Arabian horses at the ranch because they spook easily. However,... More

I've been riding horses near Island Park each summer since I was a boy and I've never been more impressed than I was at Eagle Ridge Ranch last week. We rented 24 horses for our family reunion (ages 2-71) and loved the pre-ride activities (swimming, rope swing, kayaking, etc), the actual horseback ride, and the dinner afterwards. Beautiful scenery and... More

We are so glad that your family gave us a try this summer! It sounds like you had a great time at the ranch, and with the swimming, horseback ride, and the dinner you took it all in! Now that you know where we are located, we hope you'll keep coming back. We look forward to next summer! More

We took our family of 7, who ranged in age from 3-52. The owners matched each rider to a horse. The ride was beautiful through flat land as well as woods. Cowboy Mitch was funny and made sure everyone on our ride was comfortable. He even carried our grand daughter with him when she got tired of riding with her... More

This was a great Ranch. They custom pick your horse for you. The guide we had took our group off the normal trails a bit because it was so dry and dusty. All the ranch hands were personable, helpful, and friendly. We had people from Italy in our group that didn't speak English. They made sure that they all understood... More

I am so glad that you had a great time at the ranch, and that you felt welcome here! Reviews like yours help future guests make decisions about where to enjoy horseback riding. The beauty of having such a large ranch is there is so much land to see that we can do a little "off-roading" when the regular trails... More

We had 3 children, ages 11,11 and 16. The horses were beautiful and loved by all staff. Porter, our guide, was great! You can easily feel his passion for horses and that way of life. He connects with smaller riders to put to rest any fears they may have. His calmness and proficiency on a horse came into play when... More

Great experience for everyone. They worked hard to accommodate our tight schedule and our guide was great! Spent time with each rider during the ride, took us "off the trail". Beautiful day and a lot of fun!

My parents, 3 kids (ages 8, 11, 13) and I all thoroughly enjoyed our day at Eagle Ridge Ranch! Be sure to bring swim suits for kayaking, paddle boarding, rope-swinging, fishing...and if you can, book the dinner after the 4:00 ride. We spent a little over 8 hrs and wish we had rented a cabin to stay longer. The trail... More
