Horseback riding is one of the most exciting adventure-cation because horseback riding can be scary and exciting at the same time. When choosing a horseback riding vacation, consider your skill level, the ride leader, weather (time of year), the terrain, and the culture.

Be sure to know and understand your skill level. Horseback riding is much more enjoyable when you can go at your own pace. If you’re an experienced rider, you don’t want beginners to slow you down and visa versa.  If you’re a beginner, it’s important to understand what you’re getting yourself into. Riding a horse can be physically enduring when riding up and down hills and controlling the horse across difficult terrains.

The ride leader is also a crucial element to any horseback riding vacation. The ride leader can make or break a good or a bad experience. Make sure before booking your horseback riding trip that you read the reviews about that leader. The weather (the time of year) and the terrain are extremely important elements to consider before going a horseback riding vacation. For example, the Switchback Ranch located between Roscoe and Luther, Montana has the best weather in the spring and fall.

David Leuschen is the founder of Riverstone Holdings, a private equity firm, and owns thousands of acres on one of the best horseback riding ranches in the country, Switchback Ranch. Switchback Ranch is between Wyoming’s Park County and Carbon County in Montana.
