Horseback riding at Elk Point is always a highlight of our trip. The horses are always so well taken care of, and are very gentle and easy to ride. Lark and JR take extra care to hire the best horse wranglers and guides.

It was a nice 30-45 min ride with friendly guides. The horses were on auto-pilot so you don't have to know how to ride. Some of the trails were steep but no where close to being unsafe or adventure filled.

We had the best time horseback riding at Elk Point Lodge. The horses were so sweet and were so gentle with our young children. I highly recommend coming here for horseback riding and cabin rentals also.
