Xanterra Parks & Resorts furnishes horseback excursions that allow visitors an opportunity to see Yellowstone the way the first explorers did, though hunting and trapping your own meal is no longer necessary. Rides are available from Canyon, Tower-Roosevelt, and Mammoth, and last for one or two hours. (To ride a horse a person must be at least 8 years old, 48 inches tall and weigh under 240 lbs). See the website for ride locations, dates, and rates.
