Our horseback rides are all guided, and go through miles of private timberland on both horse trails and logging roads. Though we do offer shorter lesson rides for the novice rider, our most popular ride, and the one providing the most fabulous scenery in the shortest amount of time, is our morning or afternoon ride. We also offer a half-day horseback ride, which includes a snack; and a full day trail ride, which includes a picnic lunch at a spot overlooking the Flathead Valley. The Western Barbecue Dinner ride is our personal favorite. Enjoy a late afternoon horseback ride to the mountaintop, followed by relaxing around the campfire while we prepare a traditional western barbecue.

Had an amazing four hour horseback ride at Artemis Acres. I don't have a lot of experience, and head wrangler Alexis was great at her instructions. I rode Sam, and he was a great horse! It was a really fun time!

My husband and I did a two hour ride and cannot say enough good things about our experience. The horses are all beautiful and exceptionally well trained. They are clean and well taken care of with lots of love. They are friendly and love to be petted. They are a smooth ride on the trail and the scenery is breathtaking.... More

We scheduled a private ride to celebrate our anniversary and were not disappointed. The ranch views their horses as employees, they came running to the fence and were so social. Cecil is so sweet and helpful with tips. Alexis is a phenomenal wrangler, selected great horses for us and took us on a ride with amazing views. She took lots... More

These people will cancel on you at the last minute if they do not think you are "worth their time". Just FYI, if you are planning on going here you better have a backup plan.

Cecil and his crew were amazing again. The ride was interesting, the horses are well-cared for and gentle, and the staff is incredibly nice. The view of The Flathead Valley at the top was unparalleled. This is a must-do in Kalispell.

We had a wonderful trail ride! Myself and my four kids (ages 10 - 16) went on a two hour trail ride up to the top at a mountain with fantastic views. The guide, Alexis, was top notch and great with the kids. I was particularly impressed with how well the horses are treated here, the well thought out route,... More

This is the third time riding in Montana and Artemis Acres definitely stands above the rest. Very healthy horses that seemed well taken care of and loved. Our guide Alexis was phenomenal. Truly an enjoyable ride. We did two hour ride. Nice trails with beautiful views.

We went to Kalispell just to get away for a few days only to discover this most refreshing and wonderful way to spend an afternoon. It was truly a wonderful way to shed the cares of life and recreate the soul. You gotta try it!
