The Four Day/Three Night stationary camp trip provided by Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters was the BEST decision in selecting our pack trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the day rides! We only had to set-up and break-down the camp once (When we arrived at the camp area and when we broke camp on the last day). This allowed time to sit and enjoy... More

Beautiful scenery, informative guides, fun, and actually relaxing. My non-camper wife and I took the Gardner Hole base camp trip. Jett, Jess and Bijmin were excellent; setting up camp, cooking GREAT meals, tacking horses, taking us up into higher elevations for beautiful views during 15+ mile daily rides, offering informative conversations about the area while riding as well as around...

I can't say enough great things about YWO. It was a fantastic experience. The pack trip is truly the best way to see the inside of Yellowstone. You will see what less than 1℅ of visitors to Yellowstone will see. Words do not do this trip justice. 1-Jett Hitt was so accommodating with my gluten-free diet. We ate like kings... More

If you want a true adventure, this is the trip of a lifetime! True professionals! Our wrangler Jess was a true horsewoman and a sweet person. Our camp cook and back up wrangler Bijmin was also just the best, full of wonderful stories and just the most pleasant person. Jett only serves up good food and great horses for his... More

Animals, food, campsites all first class. Jett Hitt and crew are the ultimate professionals. Now consider them friends. Will return again next year. Once is not enough.

My wife and I had a breathtaking half day horseback ride through Yellowstone. This is a must do activity while you are visiting. Seeing the park from a different vantage point, away from roads and visitors, is indescribable. Yellowstone Wilderness Outfitters is a wonderful company and easy to work with. They can cater to differing levels of experience. As someone... More

The 6 day Thorofare trip in mid-August was the trip of a lifetime. The scenery was spectacular in this isolated wilderness area. Although there were very experienced horseback riders in our group, guidance, instruction and support were excellent for us as novices. We appreciated the emphasis on safety from the quality and temperament of the horses to care to avoid... More

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
