Bring your own horse, or sign up for a guided ride once you arrive - the Methow has no shortage of trails to meet your equestrian goals. Valley-bottom trails follow the Methow River and offer cool shade mid-summer, while higher elevation trails allow you to explore scenic vistas and alpine meadows.
Hour-long, half-day and full-day rides are available through a number of lodges and outfitters, and backcountry extended trips can be booked through outfitters.
Sun Mountain Lodge also offers horse-drawn wagon rides and trailside “cowboy dinners” and “buckaroo breakfasts”. Most guides have age/height restrictions for young children.
Additional information about riding in the Methow Valley can be found on the Methow Valley Chapter, Backcountry Horseman of Washington website.
