Jett Hitt made our Yellowstone pack adventure everything that we could have expected. From chatting with us early about what to expect, to helping us make a decision on the timing of our trip. My high school buddy and I rode motorcycles from Florida for our early September six day trek through the thorofare. Every detail of our trip was... More

I did a day ride in September. It was fun - the horses were quite calm and sure footed and appeared well-cared for. The guide, Carrie, was quite knowledgeable about the wildlife in the park. There was a lunch break (lunch provided) and a couple of other breaks so people could stretch their legs and have water if needed. The... More

It was a real treat to visit Yellowstone by horseback with Jett, Grace and Jess. Jett Hitt is an outfitter who lovingly cares for all of his horses and mules. He was available for answering questions and discussing Yellowstone's features and wildlife. Grace and Jett were the wranglers who kept our days running smoothly and full of humor. They successfully... More

I love horses and we arrived to Yellowstone in September and couldn't find horseback riding company which would be open. One day we saw Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters tour on the side of the road so we gave them a call and got set up on 4 hour tour next day:)!!!! Not only our guide Carrie was very knowledgeable and professional,... More

Just completed the 6-day Thorofare pack trip - the last of the season - and what a trip it was! Jett, Jess and Grace were the best leaders imaginable. Always available for questions and assistance along the trail, always inspiring trust and confidence. The horses were great and well matched to the riders. I know Jett isn't responsible for the...

We did the half-day horseback ride... we spent about 3 hours on horseback. Our guide, Carrie, was very knowledgeable and also packed us lunch. Saw some beautiful scenery and wildlife. We got to actually ride in Yellowstone National Park. Horses were very easy-going, and Carrie gave a good demonstration/instruction session for those who haven't ridden before. Loved it, feel like...

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

Jetthitt, Owner at Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters, responded to this review

This is a curious review. He implies that we over-promised and under-delivered, but in no way does he indicate how we did that. He says, ". . .it was a beautiful day, the ride nice and slow, and we even saw some great wildlife!" He wanted to know about the history of the park, but he did not ask. Most... 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
