Pack Trips

We offer a wide variety of trips to fit your abilities and desires. The trips we offer range from 2 to 10 days. You can do a base camp trip and explore the region around there or do a progressive trip and travel to several new camp sites during your trip. Travel on horses up mountain valleys and across mountain passes, and let the beauty take your breath away. Then set camp next to some of the most pristine lakes and rivers. We ride an average of 4 to 5 hours a day and cover 10 to 15 miles per day.

Our camps are clean and comfortable, sleeping tents are made of waterproof canvas and offer sleeping pads. A solar shower is available and a latrine is set up at every campsite. Canvas flies and tarps will offer shelter from sun and the occasional rain shower. Sit around the campfire in cozy chairs and enjoy the camaraderie of friends and family, telling jokes and stories of days gone by; maybe even sing along to an occasional cowboy song. Cooks will prepare meals over the fire and on a propane stove and are served buffet style. Enjoy entries like steaks, pork tenderloin, chicken, burgers, spaghetti for dinner, as well as all the fixings; light appetizers and snacks are included as well. Wake up to a breakfast with old fashioned cowboy coffee, bacon, eggs, sausage, pancakes and more. Lunches are usually on-the-go (we are out on the trail exploring) and consist of sandwiches, chips, granola bars and candy bars.

Stationary Trips

On stationary trips, we travel to a base camp area and stay in that camp for the duration of our trip. We day ride, hike, fish and explore from there. This is a very relaxing trip. These trips are great for corporate getaways. Trips range from 2 to 10 days.

Progressive Trips

Cody to Jackson

This is an 8 day trip that travels through the Waskakie and Bridger-Teton wilderness. We move camp 4 to 5 of the days and camp in some of the prettiest places on earth. With a chance of seeing wildlife like deer, elk, moose, bears and wolves, this is a great trip for photography and unparalleled scenic views. Travel through the most remote areas in the lower 48 states, cross the Continental Divide, ride past historic mountain cabins and the headwaters of the Yellowstone River.

Marston trip

This is a 7-day trip that travels up the Southfork of the Shoshone and goes over Marston pass to the Buffalo Plateau.

Horse Supported Backpacking

Don't want to ride horses or pack those heavy backpacking loads but still want to explore the wilderness? We have the trip for you! We pack your gear on horses, plus set up a nice camp and have the same great meals our horse trips enjoy. We are very accommodating and travel as far or as little as you want to move. You get to sit back and enjoy the quietness of the mountains. Guide yourself during the day or have one of our guides walk with you. We will meet at a prearranged destination where camp will be waiting for you. These trips vary from 2 to 10 days. GPS recommended.
