My mother in law and I went together. Our guides name was Sharon. Wow! What an unbelievable experience we had! Thank you so much! This wasn't just a job to our trail guide, her passion was obvious and not only was she friendly and great to be around she was educational too! I really learned so much more on this ride than i have on any other ride before. If I ever get to come back to Montana I can guarantee I'll be back here to ride with you! Thank you for this amazing experience! ????Autumn Whitener

I took a 2 hour trail ride and full day trail ride with Paintbrush Adventures in October 2023. Sharon and Rebecca both ensured I, and everyone else on the rides, were taken care of and had a wonderful time. I was vacationing solo and felt completely safe and comfortable with these great people. The horses were sweet, the views and scenery were amazing, and we even got to see a bear and a bald eagle. Many thanks for a wonderful two days back home in the great state of Montana!
Stayed with Wanda and Tiny at the ranch for a week and had an amazing time. Two of the kindest and caring people in the world and showed me the way of ranching. I will 100% be back.Sharon is an excellent guide and really cares for her horses. Fun terrain on the rides and great views. All skill levels will have a great time.
Very good group! Ride guide was fun and kept the conversation going. She kept the whole ride entertaining, fun, and even mixed a bit of education in. The horses were well-trained and very well behaved.You can tell Paintbrush Adventures takes good care of their animals, and there's a bond of trust built.Thank you for a very pleasant experience!
What a unique piece of paradise! My family from Australia visited so we decided on a ranch stay in Montana and Wanda and Tini treated us to an unforgettable experience. Trail riding everyday was a highlight as we got to explore the breathtaking Beartooth Mountains. The sound of the Stillwater was majestic, the food delicious and the special meetings Wanda arranged so we could learn from local farmers was so thoughtful. The entire team at Paintbrush Adventures are kind, friendly and fun. Special shout-out to Sharron! I hope we’ll be back!
My boyfriend and his parents are regular horse riders, but as it was my first time, they brought me here. The horses were so well trained! I couldn't have asked for a better experience, especially as someone who has a totally (ir)rational fear of heights.
What an amazing morning! Sharon, Abigail, and Sophie were awesome guides for the 2 hour ride. Beautiful scenery, mountains, and eagles. The horses were fitted to each rider for the best ride. We had 4 children (5-10 y/o) and they thought it was a perfect day! Special shout out to Abigail as she ponied our young grandson and engaged him the whole time. Thanks for a great experience!!
Our family spent six wonderful days with Paintbrush Adventures in July 2023. 3 days in their beautiful cabin sitting along the Stillwater River and 3 days on horseback with their mountain pack trip. I cannot say enough about Wanda, Tiny, Troy, Meagan, Jace and their entire crew at Paintbrush. Amazing country and people. Come visit soon. You will not be disappointed.
My girl friend and I took a trip out west from Columbus, Ohio. We booked a trail ride with Paintbrush Adventures. Our guide's name was Tiny and he was fantastic. I had been in a horseback riding accident 11 years ago, with a helicopter ride and an ICU stay. Had not ridden out side a fence until this ride. Tiny was so careful and gave me the most wonderful horse, Sherpa. We roade for 2 hours and I crossed a bridge and I had not done that since the helicopter ride. A very memoriable time.
Scheduled a 2 hour ride today for two. Had a great relaxing ride. Beautiful views of the mountains and deer. First time rider here and was a little nervous at first. Horses were beautiful and well trained. Would definitely do it again!
What an amazing adventure we had with Paintbrush Adventures! My husband and I have been home for a week but, we are both still living off emotions and stories from our Pack Trip. Paintbrush Adventures Pack Trip was above and beyond anything we could could have imagine. I would highly recommend this Ranch to anyone. WE WILL BE BACK!
The Stillwater cabin sits on a beautiful stretch of river. You likely won't see any other fishermen except for maybe the occasional bald eagle, but the fishing is so good it would draw crowds just about anywhere else. Wanda offers true Montana hospitality. This isn't a resort. It's a real place for a real stay.
10/10 would recommend! Beautiful trails and you can tell the horses are well taken care of. Our trail leader and her daughter were absolutely great to ride with. Will definitely be back next time we’re in the area!
Our family of 5 went on the 2 hour ride as part of the Saddle and Paddle schedule and we loved it! We are on a year long family RV adventure as a family and this is totally one of our highlights! We were impressed at how all the horses were ready and lined up and at how little time it took for us to do our paperwork. Our guide was excellent! The horses were great and the scenery was amazing! We had places to stop and take pics and the guides helped us take them. It was a great time! I don't think I stopped smiling the entire time! I would recommend to anybody!
My husband and I booked a 3 day/2 night pack trip with Paintbrush Adventures and it was absolutely amazing! We had never done anything like it before and now cannot wait to come back and do it again. Wanda and Tiny know the Absaroka Mountains like the back of their hand. We felt safe and comfortable the entire trip. It was a breathtaking 8 mile ride into camp, which was right along the Stillwater River. We learned how to fly fish, hiked around and walked upstream with lunch/drinks in our backpacks and enjoyed our time in the wilderness. We loved getting involved with helping with the horses and mules. Tiny was not shy on showing us what to do and how to help! Wanda and Tiny have the biggest hearts, are so accommodating and provide you with the real deal! We are looking forward to visiting them again in 2021!
We had a blast on our trail ride, the view was lovely, as was our horses, and Wanda told us a lot about the land surrounding us. I’d happily return.Thanks to Paintbrush for squeezing us in on such short notice!
