I had the opportunity to spend almost a week with this group. From the owner, the chef, the hands, the dogs, horses and mules, it was just great. So organized and helpful at all times. Food excellent, fishing really good, and the conversations and stories really great and fun. Be prepared to wake up to real cowboy coffee and hit... More

We loved spending 4 plus hours with Carrie and three other couples from Germany, Russia & New Hampshire. The horses were beautiful, friendly and well behaved! We traveled 3 1/2 miles into the mountains, had lunch and traveled back. Thank you Carrie for making my 63 birthday memorable!! Such a peaceful day enjoying the natural beauty of Yellowstone National Park.

Our 3-generation family group of 9 finished the Waterfalls trip on August 20, 2016. This is our second trip with YWO. We did the Thorofare Explorer two years ago. I don't have enough superlatives to do justice to this trip! It is fabulous by any measurement you want to use! Our age range spanned 61 years--12 years old to 73.... More

As a single mom from New Jersey with two teenagers (boy 14 & girl 12), it can be extremely challenging to make both of them happy, especially at the same time. Well this by far accomplished that. I originally booked a trail ride/cookout dinner with a different “company” but after some trip advisor research, I decided to cancel that reservation... More

My husband and I went on the half-day trail ride and had a great time. Our guide Carrie was extremely knowledgeable about Yellowstone, which was great for my biologist husband, and she did a great job instructing us on how to manage our horses (my husband had never been on a horse before). We spent about three hours on a... More

The "saddle" part of this trip was a bit boring. The trail guide was good, but the trail was boring - expected some unique views of the park on horseback, so we were a bit disappointed. Nice, well-cared for horses. If we had it to do again, we'd skip this and spend more time seeing the park on our own.... More

I have always loved horseback riding AND backcountry, and this trip enabled me to combine them, resulting in what was, for me, the trip of a lifetime. The outfitter, Jett, was superb in his knowledge of the park, horses, the trail, not to mention classical music. And the backcountry did not disappoint-- alpine meadows covered in wildflowers, canyons, river crossings,... More

We booked a paddle & saddle package with Carrie before our visit. The ride was a wonderful morning on well cared for horses and a skilled guide. One of our group members had never ridden a horse before and Carrie was very encouraging. I highly recommend this company. Thanks for a great way to see some of the back country... More

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...
