Born and raised in Montana. My work is what makes me happy. I have worked for this company since I was a young boy, now I am managing it. Our guides are trained in First Aid and CPR, we have great horses and match their personalities with our clients. Clients can be advanced riders or first timers, we have a horse for everyone. We own our horses, they are not rented from a large company.

    about tour
    The efficiency and organization of your wilderness camp to include your guides and cook proved to be amazing. The opportunities for game and the challenges of the Bob Marshall and Great Bear Wilderness are something that everyone in camp will remember for a lifetime.

    Just did a 3 day pack trip and then rented their cabin for 5 days. The pack trip was great. Chance was professional and did a great job meeting the needs of our group. We were a mix of riders and fishermen and we all got time to do what we love. The food, gear and stock were great.
