Great instructions before the ride! Not all outfitters take the time to cover the horses and what to do and not to do. Good for rider and horse. Excellent!
In June 2011 our family of four took a wonderful vacation to Glacier National Park and the highlight event, the Four Day Saddle & Paddle, exceeded our expectations! The team of Wild River Adventures and Swan Mountain Outfitters did an outstanding job of accommodating our family’s every need and taking the time to address all our concerns prior to departure. Bob said it several times: “this is your trip”, and Wild River Adventures and Swan Mountain Outfitters takes that message to heart. The guides from both organizations were outstanding and the cooking was some of the best outdoor meals we have experienced. The scenery in both the Flathead National Forest and Middle Fork of the Flathead River is awesome; we highly recommend this trip
The staff was great with reservations at the corral. The horses were easy to manage. We came upon a cinnamon black bear which our wrangler handled well. He was knowledgeable of most everything along the trail, entertaining and easy to talk to.
Very thorough and comprehensive safety and setup - excellent. Made sure horses were well fitted and riders were comfortable and ready to ride.
Very nice ride and an excellent guide. She clearly likes her job and is good at it. Was knowledgeable about the area and the animals, plants, etc. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
We had a wonderful ride in Glacier last week! We thought our wrangler was fantastic. She was attentive to everyone's needs without being over-bearing or over-protective. Throughout the ride, she shared her knowledge of the local plants and animals as well as telling us some good grizzly stories. She's a gem! Even though our backsides were sore at the end of the day's ride, it was a real treat seeing part of Glacier on horseback and a high point of our honeymoon. Whenever we come back to Glacier we will be sure to join another ride.
I am writing to convey my pleasure with the riding experience I had with your wranglers and horses at the Many Glacier Corral. I have never been on a horse ride prior to that trip. Your wranglers made the whole experience enjoyable and safe. Because of that, I went back for a second ride four days later, with the same happy experience. The men and women who work at the Many Glacier Corral are obviously knowledgeable and enjoy working with horses. They were part of a very enjoyable experience I had in the entire park during the middle two week in August.
This was my first time ever on horseback and my guide made me feel very comfortable. She was very pleasant and informative during the ride. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
I have ridden, owned and worked with horses all my life and know what hard work it can be and how contrary most horses can be! Our experience at Many Glacier was excellent - really good, reliable, safe horses plus an excellent wrangler. Please pass on our thanks for a very enjoyable morning's trek with a really professionally, well run outfit
We send special thanks to your wrangler/guide who was especially considerate and comforting with my wife - who was very afraid of horses. Her talents enabled my wife to ride, to overcome (in part) her fear of horses. My wife, Annie, enjoyed the 2 hour ride and now looks forward to again riding with increasing enjoyment and less fear. Many thanks!
Great ride at Apgar! The wranglers were awesome! Perfect for our kids' first horseback riding experience. Thank you!
I wanted to thank all of you for showing us a great time on our ride in August. I got to ride Bull and have to say he is the sweetest horse. Thank you so much for choosing him for me. Please give him an extra dose of oats and big kiss from me. Thanks again Swan Mountain Outfitters. May you always have peace in a beautiful country.
Thank you for the great ride up to Sperry Chalet and adventurous ride down! I've been caught in rain many times but never on a horse. Not realizing the steepness of it all, I was impressed with the footing of the horses. May the Lord bless you for all your hard work, knowledge and commitment to what you do!
