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

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

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

I am a single female who loves to travel but I always seem to travel alone. If you fit that description, and have never visited the back country for that reason, then read on! I visited Yellowstone three times in 4 years and each year was better and better, all due to Jett Hitt, Carrie Byron and Yellowstone Outfitters. I... More

I went on the Thorofare trail and it was wonderful, my camp mates where great and Jett and his guides enhanced the experience with their expertise and kindness. I have camped in other national parks, but this was by far the most fun and positive-in regards to guides and camp mates. Plus the horses and mules (especially the mules) where... More

We have not long been back from spending 6 days out on the Thorofare Trail with YWO and I can honestly say that we have had one of the best experiences of our lives. Yellowstone is just a beautiful place and we wanted to be right in the middle of it...and thats exactly what we got. What better way to... More

I have discovered one of the most unique places for geography, geothermal, and wildlife while on horseback. Yellowstone Outfitters gave me a way to see this strange and wonderful place. Superheated water sends plumes of steam wafting over the horizon against a background of granite rock and lodge pole pines. Roaring streams of water cascade over rounded stones, racing downward...

We took a half day ride near Mammoth Hot Springs. Carrie was our guide and was professional, friendly and obviously knew a lot about what she was doing. It would have been more interesting if we had done a loop, but it was an in and out trail, so you saw the same scenery twice. They do full day and... More

We've gone on 6-day pack trips with Jett and co twice now, and it's the best money we've ever spent on any vacation, without a doubt. Our first trip with them was our delayed honeymoon in 2011. Though we've spent hundreds of nights camping from cars, motorcycles, skis, and on-foot, everywhere from state parks to backcountry sites nationwide, I was... More
