I did the thoroughfare trip with Jed and the gang. By far one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Plenty of wildlife, grizzlies and brown bear. Unforgettable landscapes and views of the park. An experience that cannot be gained looking from the outside in, only by traversing the landscape in this fashion can you experience the true wilderness... More

This is the highest rated and most popular horse service in Yellowstone, but I would recommend checking out a smaller one. The trip was decent, but with larger businesses you get an "assembly line" style service rather than a great experience. You could argue that if we were looking for a private trail tour there are much more expensive services... More

Where can you find an acclaimed classical composer, former university professor, fluent in foreign languages, conversant in wide ranging topics, great story teller, excellent horseman, and accommodating outfitter? That is what you find with Jett Hite. These talents coupled with his wonderful assistants Jess & Grace, who are both recent college graduates, set the stage for a most unusual adventure.... More

What a GREAT AND AMAZING way to see the back country of Yellowstone, enjoy some Awesome Views and spend quality time with family and friends. We were a bit worried that our 3 boys would not handle the horses very well but these horses are well trained. If you will listen to the wranglers, follow their instructions, leave your cell...

An adventure of a lifetime! We had a great group of folks; lots of fun and laughter at the campfire every night. We felt very safe. Jett is cautious and has our safety in mind at all times. The food was excellent and the staff was very attentive. I would recommend this trip to anyone who has a sense of... More

Absolutely loved our day long horseback riding experience. My son and I had never ridden before and it had been many years since my husband had ridden. As novice riders Carrie was very good at instructing us in the fundamentals of what we needed to know for the ride. I can't say enough about Carrie. She was patient, checked to... More

Had a wonderful full-day trip with Carrie - we followed a meandering stream to a high country meadow in the foothills of Electric Peak. She was a lot of fun and her "kids" (the horses) were beautiful and well-trained but still had some spunk! Great day - certainly a highlight of our Yellowstone vacation!

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
