“Scenic ride in the mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Because our trail ride was set up by the touf company, I am not sure of the name! Our guide told us about the family who owned the trail horses and how the guides all lived together throughout the summer. The said that everyone had Sundays off - unusual in any business! There were about twelve of us riding - most of whom had never ridden before. I had a large black horse who was obedient as one could expect and as an experienced rider, I had no difficulty, However, one person's stirrup actually fell off, and another horse ran away when his rider decided to get to his horse to help someone else! Made for some interesting moments. The trails were not easy, and so also lent some elements of surprise to what could have been a very boring two hour trip! The guides pointed out flora and fauna, but did not know all the birds - hard to see but beautiful voices. Not sure of the value as this ride was set up by the tour group, but the views of the Tetons were magnificent and overall, everyone had a great time! PS - the outhouse has a flushing toilet and running water sink!

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Myself and 5 others did the 2 hour trail ride and really enjoyed it. The guide was really friendly and chatty. I had never even been on a horse before but felt very at ease. The views were lovely along the way and the location was very handy. The price was good too. I would highly recommend this. We loved it!

“A fun excursion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

The staff was really nice and friendly. It was my whole family's first time on a horse, and our guide (Tyler) was great. He rode right in front of me because I was the most nervous! He was very talkative, and we all learned a lot about horses and about Jackson Hole.

“Steep Climb”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This ride left from behind Snow King Resort. We rode up and across the Snow King ski area, a very, very steep climb for the horses. Quite a workout for them. While the views of the town and the mountains were beautiful, the trails were not as scenic as others we have been on in the area. This is very convenient if you are staying in Jackson and want to take a short ride.
