The snow is melting which means a new world is appearing from under the snow. In spring there is so much to see from fresh flowers to animals exploring the land. The best way to experience what Mother Nature has to offer is on horseback. At Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge we provide horseback riding throughout your stay. It is a chance for you to see what a Montana Dude Ranch has to offer.

On our 2,000 acre private ranch, we have a ton of sites to explore on horseback. From mountain wilderness, spectacular lake views, our private elk preserve, and some of Montana’s most beautiful landscape. Our riding program is focused on you, the guest. What this means is that our guests can ride as much or as little as they would like during their week at the Lodge. Our riding program offers a variety of riding options daily, for all ability levels, and various ride lengths and ages so that guests can pick and chose what riding experience they would like from day to day.

At our ranch, we want to make sure everyone has a chance to ride a horse. That is why our wranglers offer private riding lessons for beginner riders in our arena so that everyone feels comfortable out on the trails. For the experienced equestrians, our wranglers will take out smaller groups, ride faster, and cover some serious distance while venturing into some of the most untouched wilderness in the country.

With so much to see in Montana and on our ranch, we want to make sure you can see it all. Our Montana Dude Ranch provides the most fun and exciting way to view everything and that is on horseback. We pride ourselves on making the experience enjoyable for you as well as the horses. So spring into action and grab your cowboy hat and book your stay at Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge.
