Horses for Lease

Thank you all! For years, Montana Horses has continued a long tradition of leasing quality recreational trail horses across the mountain states.  The Mantle family has been in the horse business for almost a century and our name has become synonymous with quality, gentle, mountain trail horses.  We have several thousand of the finest recreational riding horses for lease and locations across the Northwest, so we have a horse for every type of rider or business.  Whether you are looking for a string of saddle or pack horses to supplement your operation, a few horses to take on a summer fishing trip, or one special horse to call your own while you spend time in Montana, we have quality PROVEN horses to suit your needs.  We are the largest and longest family operated horse leasing business in the Northwest and we have the best trail horses in the business.

The Mantle Ranch in Montana retired from the commercial horse leasing business this year. We now maintain a small, versatile, and highly professional string of exceptional horses for lease seasonally to small specialized operations, families, and vacation home owners or by the trip for special events and summer trips.
