Support the Park In Your Own Way

Whether you are an equestrian, dog walker, neighbor or guest, you can support and preserve the open space of the Big Sky Horse Park. Learn how you can support this unique jewel in the heart of the Missoula community with a membership.

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 bshpdirector@gmail.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:

  • Arenas:

    • Main Arena (150’ x 300’) with Announcer Stand/Office & PA System

    • 2 Regulation Dressage Arenas

    • Western Events Arena (175’ x 300’)

    • Martin Briggman 4-H Arena (100’ x 200’)

  • Complete Cross-Country Jump Course (Smurf/Intro through Modified-Training levels)

  • Quarter Mile Sand Track for more vigorous equine workouts

  • Obstacle Course elements

  • 50’ Round Pen

  • 50 Permanent Stalls with a wash rack, overnight parking and RV hook-ups

  • Restroom

 

BSHP Members enjoy the facilities for a small, annual fee. Non-members may pay a day fee for single day use. Please note that there is an additional fee for use of the cross-country course. All BSHP amenities are available for rent to both equestrian and non-equestrian groups alike.
