Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding with a View

Reid Horse & Cattle Co. operations are based in Plumas County, California. Plumas County is comprised of over 85% public lands, with most being National Forest. Terrain ranges from beautiful meadows to high alpine granite peaks. The local area is rich in gold rush and logging history.

Reid Horse & Cattle Co. operates their horse adventures from two locations: Graeagle Stables located on Hwy 89 in Graeagle and the Gold Lake Stables located in the Gold Lakes Recreation Area.  

Pack Rides

A horse packing trip is one of the oldest forms of transporting folks and their gear to remote mountain hideaways, and we guarantee it’s also the most fun! Reid Horse & Cattle Co. features four basic types of pack trips, but can arrange almost any trip you might want. Their horses cover about twelve miles daily allowing you plenty of time for fishing, relaxing around the campfire or just enjoying the mountains. Pack trips originate from the Gold Lake Pack Station. Trips can be scheduled from the end of July through September, weather permitting.

Daily Trail Rides

Reid Horse & Cattle Co.’s expert wrangler will guide you on rides to nearby lakes and through pine forests. There are miles of unfenced trails to explore. Trail rides are offered as one hour and one and half hour at Graeagle Stables in downtown Graeagle and as one hour, two and a half hour, half-day and all day adventures at Gold Lake Pack Station.

The longer trail rides can cover more ground allowing for spectacular views of the mountain tops.  Abundant wildflowers and pristine lakes hidden in the Sierra Nevada’s. The 2-12 hour ride passes 5 different lakes.  The half-day rides will show you 13 different lakes and the all-day-adventure can see as many as 20 different lakes before returning to the stables.

All trail rides and instruction are guided and by appointment. Please contact Reid Horse & Cattle Co. at (530) 836-0940 or (530) 836-0430 to make a reservation.
