Just got back from the 6 day pack trip. It was fantastic. Jett, Jess, and Grace worked non-stop the whole trip to make sure everything went smoothly. The scenery was breathtaking. We were fortunate and saw three bear (grizzly and black) on this trip. I felt safe the whole trip. The horses were great and mine took good care of... More

Thanks to Carrie and Yellowstone outfitters - she was an excellent guide and took us on a guided trip in Yellowstone. It was a 1st for my 13 year old daughter and now she wants a horse! Would certainly recommend using these guys.

Jett was very accommodating throughout the booking process. He worked with the itinerary that we already had in place. We took the 4 day, 3 night Gardners Hole trip, and from the time we met at the trailhead everything ran smoothly. The amount of equipment and livestock that was needed was amazing to me. The camping area was gorgeous and... More

Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters was recommended by a friend of my Dad’s. From the very start this group of people exceeded my expectations and impressed me. I first spoke to Jett in January to get started with the trip. He emailed me detailed information of everything I’d need to pack and plan for. Everything he suggested came in handy! When the...

Amazing. Must be seen. Just a little look but there are more. A lot more to see. You can see a lot by car and you can feel the mighty mountains by foot.

Although the scenery was beautiful and the guides friendly, we were disappointed with the lack of attention to safety. Specifically, helmets were not offered. Given that one person in our party was bucked off her horse, who was unruly from the beginning, we were blessed she was not seriously injured.

My family, wife, daughter (26), and son (23), had a fantastic experience on a half day horseback ride with YWO June, 18 2015. We rode over 3.5 hours on the black tail deer lake trail in Yellowstone. It was beautiful country. Kerry was very knowledge of the mountains around us and all the wild flowers in bloom. All of us... More

Oh my, let's rail on others for your mistake. I also booked a trip with Jett and his company. I also was unable to make the trip but had bought the insurance and received a full refund. Jett and I spoke several times on the phone and he was gracious, helpful and genuine. He never showed anything close to having... More

You have choices if you decide you want to ride horses in Yellowstone. Don’t choose Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters. I cannot speak to the day rides or the other staff, but the owner, Jett Hitt, who personally leads the overnight pack trips in different parts of the park, is someone of whom you should be wary. I unexpectedly found myself on... More

I never actually spoke with this person, so it is hardly fair to say that I was "curt and ungracious." She spoke with my wife. It was not possible for me to speak with her at the time because I was in the backcountry running pack trips, and there is no phone service there. I deal with these types of... More

This was a great experience, and now that I've done it, it was THE way to see Yellowstone. We did the Thorofare ride in September. Jet and his team know the Park and care for its preservation, and provide a great experience for their participants. The young women who were the wranglers on the trip were nothing short of amazing.... More
