About the Facilities
The Big Sky Horse Park was founded in 1982 by the Missoula Horse Council and stewarded to this day by volunteers. A board of 13 members meets monthly to discuss the park's events, maintenance, and policies. If you would like to get involved, please contact the board at email@example.com! Check out the events calendar to find details on the next board meeting.
The 90 acre Big Sky Horse Park (BSHP, formerly “Missoula Equestrian Park”) is bordered by a 1.7 mile perimeter trail, which acts as a boundary for the facility’s many features. These include:
Main Arena (150’ x 300’) with Announcer Stand/Office & PA System
