Summer Activities at Chico Hot Springs Resort

Paint, White, and Chestnut Horses

What's next?

Pony Rides: $30
This activity is designed to introduce children aged 4 to 7 years to horses. We spend about half an hour with the kids, letting them brush and pet the horses while asking any questions they have. We then put them up into tiny little saddles for their walk around our facility.

Catch Your Breath: $50
This is a one hour session of equine facilitated wellness for 8yrs. & up. This is a full hour of guided horse time. This activity is all done on the ground, so if you are looking to spend time learning about horses, grooming a horse, or maybe you've had a wreck and just want to get your confidence back. Horses have a way of making us feel unstressed. This activity a lot of times becomes directed by the horse. It is a time to breathe and be calm with a beautiful, strong, gentle animal.

1 Hour Ride: $55
This one hour ride is a great way to get started in the saddle. Ages 8 to 80 can enjoy this walking trail ride.

2 Hour Ride: $80
A two hour trail ride offers a little more action with a little more elevation and views. This ride is designed for ages 8 and up.

3 Hour Ride: $130
This ride is done right out of the Chico Barn. We are able to access the surrounding Forest Service Lands for a breathtaking ride with beautiful views of Paradise Valley. A snack is included.

Full-Day Ride: $235
Our full-day ride option is in Yellowstone National Park. This is a ride of a lifetime! Lunch is served on the trail with plenty of cold drinks for before, during, and after the ride. This ride is designed for ages 8 and up, and a 2-person minimum is required. Yellowstone National park trails will open in mid-June.

The kids hitting the trails

We are also able to guide unforgettable private Cross-Country Skiing and Snowshoeing treks in Yellowstone National Park. These trips are roughly 5 hours once we start skiing or snowshoeing. We provide the skis or snowshoes along with a great lunch on the trail. Skiing past Bison and Elk in the quiet of Yellowstone is a once in a lifetime treat.
