Horse Podcast Ep 173: Riding with your Spouse – Do you Dare?

Riding with your spouse,  are you up for the challenge? Riding with your spouse can be a great time if everyone is on the same page, however that doesn’t always work out.  Today’s episode talks all about the advantages and perhaps the disadvantages of riding with a spouse. Give and take is a common phrase in marriage and when it comes to riding it is great advice. If your partner is a beginner teaching them how to ride is a great way to spend time together. However, if they think they know more than you that can lead to arguments.  In our latest podcast, we share our live episode where all three of us share stories of riding with our spouse.

Riding with your Spouse

If you are lucky enough to have a partner that is interested in the same types of activities as your self it can be a great advantage. Riding with your spouse can give you quality time together, have an extra hand when loading horses, parking, and even turning your rig around. But what about when they aren’t interested in rising with you? Then what how do you find that compromise. Turn into our podcast to hear all about how we make it work.

Special Announcement

Elkhorn Ranch

Calling all equestrians! Elkhorn Ranch’s tradition of equestrian adventure began 99-years-ago in 1922. Bordering Yellowstone National Park, the history of Elkhorn’s riding program runs deep, and the backcountry is where it starts. This Fall, we are hosting an Avid Riders week, where we are rounding up experienced riders of varying disciplines to come together to explore over one million acres of National Forest, USFS Wilderness, and Yellowstone National Park.

The goal of this week is to go far, not fast. Every day there will be groups that will hit the trails in every direction based on desired time in the saddle and comfort level. We will be racking up the mileage this week and working our way into the backcountry for mountaintop vistas that not many can get to. 

Riding requirements

All riders must be willing to ride on rocky and steep terrain, as well as comfortable with walk, trot, and canter. Our horses are well mannered and smart mountain horses, if you trust them, they will take you wherever you want to go. 

Please reach out to Kt at kt@elkhornranchmontana.com  Rates include all meals, cabin lodging, and all on-ranch activities.
