Facilities- Mountain View Arena

Barn Phone  - 406-846-1989 this number rings in the barn and office- its the best number to call for reservations.

 

Mountain View Arena has an indoor arena with 28 inside stalls in the back.

 We can be seen from Interstate 90 at exit # 184 in SW Montana. If you are traveling west you can see us on your right before you exit. If you are traveling east take exit # 184, turn left to go under the freeway, then take the first right. We are the second driveway on the left - next to the Valley Veterinary Clinic. Motels and restaurants are within view. Over night horses are welcome.

 

 The driveway entry is wide enough for tractor (semi-trucks) with trailers. There is room to turn around in the parking area next to the barn. The famous Clydesdales have stayed here with their 3 big Tractor-trailers and had room to spare. We have stabled race horses, show horses and even an elephant.

 
 Overnight stabling: The stalls are bedded with sawdust or shavings and are big enough for draft horses including the famous Clydesdales.
  Over night or day rates are $20 per horse, you feed and water. Bring your own hay and a water buckets for each horse. We have hooks to hang the bucket on the stall walls. You may clean out your trailer but please ask where to dump the manure. The veterinarian owns the property around us and does not like people to dump manure on his side of the fence. Our manure pile is close to the road west of the corrals - you are welcome to use one of our wheelbarrow to haul it. If you want us to feed and water your horses for you it is
$25 a day. We strongly recommend you bring hay your horses are accustomed to eating. We do not sell hay but can help in an emergency.
  We clean the stalls so you don't have to.

   For people who would like to stay a while and enjoy our area we offer weekly rates. There is lots of riding in the area; either trailer up to the forest service land or ride the county roads to the hills from the barn $75 per week per horse. Bring your own hay.
