Four of us in our 60's went on the 3 hour morning horse back ride with Diamond P Ranch. My husband and I had been on similar rides before and were very comfortable. One of our friends was very nervous and had a hard time settling into the ride. Preston was our guide and both he and the owner spent... More

Staff was friendly and accommodating, making sure everyone was comfortable with their horse. My wife and I had great horses that were steady both uphill and downhill. Marvelous views of the valley from the top of the National Forest through which you ride. Weather was a little iffy on our day and they give warm, long coats to keep you... More

My husband and I both own horses and were pleased that we were given well trained horses to ride. The scenery was gorgeous and our guide Justin was a sweetheart. The owner Rex came out to greet everyone personally and match them with the appropriate horse. Justin took pictures of everyone on their horses with the amazing forest background during... More

Our Diamond P Ranch experience was the best part of our 5 days in Yellowstone. It was easy to book and easy to find-- just outside West Yellowstone on the main road. We had little to no experience with horses before this. The guides were experienced and friendly. The horses were well trained and very good with kids. Our 90... More
