With the combination of our fantastic horses, fun, knowledgeable, personable guides/wranglers, small or big groups, and the stunning beauty of the scenery, what more can one ask for? Our guests have a passion for horses, want to be out with nature, and have an adventurous side. It is the excitement of crossing a river, riding "the man from snowy river," going thru old growth, river bottoms, crossing slides and alpine meadows, just riding in the mountains and doing it with a strong animal beneath you. The views are spectacular! We also offer pack trips, cabin rentals, and fishing trips.

Must call or email for directions. Do NOT drive to our house please. The map is not able to match where the rides are which are in the mountains of the St. Marys.

We booked our adventure with Val and Brad for August 6, 2016. Val was excellent with her prompt email responses and on it with answering our questions. Details were excellent, but we did find ourselves questioning on directions on a particular split in the road. It's probably obvious a second time, but we were rushing a bit on the wash... More

Four of us, Two from Cranbrook and two from the UK took the tour up to the hot springs. It was a wonderful day with expert guides for people who have never really ridden. The scenery was fantastic, the horses were just about bullet proof and lunch was magnificent. I can't say enough good things about these people except try... More

Upon arrival we were greeted by our tour guide Brad who was so easy to get along with we fealty like we already knew him. His incredible horses made the tour easy and relaxing. His dogs mixed in and provided some unexpected... More

We were a group of four climbers headed in to the Leaning Towers for a two week expedition. I communicated mostly with Val, and then met Brad and his daughter and a few others at their headquarters near the trailhead. They made everything extremely easy for us - no specifications on weight, size of bags - they had the horses... More

We visited in July and returned again in August- because we had such an awesome time. I brought my 8 year old daughter who loved her horse Burt, our guide Bailey, and the fun trek through the forest and river. This is truly an incredible adventure in the mountains. We loved it! We hope to return for the overnight ride... More

I have to start off by saying that although the scenery and animals were AMAZING, what really made this trip were the owners, Brad and Val. I was staying in the area with my two little boys (ages 5 and 6) and had a last minute thought to see if I could get them on a trail ride after they... More

Great place. Scenic horseback riding in the back county near Kimberly. Highly recommended for couples or families. No riding experience needed as they are they to guide you through forest and river scenery.

I was unsure about horseback riding at first having never done it before, but could not have had a more positive experience. From the moment I mounted the horse, GOT's guides made me feel extremely comfortable, and the ride was absolutely stunning in its beauty. Can't recommend GOT enough — ride, ride, ride!
