Horseback Jobs

Horseback Jobs in Yellowstone

Our season runs from mid mid June until mid October, and we accept job applications year round. Most hiring is done in the winter, but when the need arises, we hire midseason as well.

Guiding horseback tours in Yellowstone can be the adventure of a lifetime, but it also means very long hours with few days off. The pay is by the week, not by the hour. Tips can augment the income--sometimes greatly, depending upon your interpersonal skills.

Job Requirements

Interpersonal skills are essential. Above all else, our guests must have a good time. They must be treated with respect and kindness, and sometimes this can be difficult when a client is being belligerent. This job is 20% horses and 80% people. Many of our guests are foreigners, and we do not tolerate racism of any kind.

We like for our guides to be well educated and well spoken. We prefer guides with a college education. A guide must be able to field any and all questions about Yellowstone National Park. (We will point you to materials that will help you prepare.)


At this time, we are primarily looking for a day ride guide, but you may indicate if you are interested in other positions as well should one come available.
