Logan was a great guide and was knowledgable of the area. The horses were great and were more than capable. We went through all types of terrain - from small muddy trails in the woods, mountain tops and roads. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for an affordable activity that is safe and exciting. Beautiful views of the snake river. Call now and make reservations.

As far as I can tell, this is the best option in the Jackson area if you want an intimate experience for your family, rather than being in a long train of horses. Our friendly but nonobtrusive guide led our family of 4 (15-year-old and 10-year-old) up the road for about 15 minutes, but the rest of the ride was up trails to a high ledge with views of the valleys on either side (nice, but a bit disappointed we couldn't really see the tetons).

The best part was the relative freedom/control we had of our well-trained horses. None of us had significant experience with horses, but were given instruction and horses that were easy to ride. By the end of the 2-hour ride, we all felt very comfortable on our horses and had had a great time.

A great time with Logan as our guide. My 17 year old cousins first ride. She had a great horse and excellent instruction. Only down side was our butts were sore. Entirely worth it.

This would be a good pack trip for those who like roughen it. Examples as in the, bathroom a hole in the ground with a sheet around the wooden pot, cots where stained and filthy (bring your own sleeping bag), the tent was straight out of the civil war (nothing like the picture in the brochure), just as old and worn and put up carelessly. Thankfully it didn't rain. The horses, as was said in the brochure, turned out to be Mules! Didn't appreciate that when you say you would ride horses on the pack trip and you get Mules..a forewarning would of been nice, or I guess you have to be related to the owner to get horses, as the two groups that joined us afterwards did, not cool. If the guide and cook and those others, including kids, rode in on horses and took the same trails as we did, not sure why we had to have mules. Besides all of that, the food was really good! We had chicken and steak, French toast, pancakes, bacon and so much more! Barry was an amazing cook! Trail guide A.J took us on some advance riding up the mountain, with some beautiful views. It was really fun. A.J was very helpful and funny. He kept the trail rides very entertaining. The fishing was good as well. Overall it was a nice experience but probably won't go with them again. Just goes to show you don't always believe what the brochure shows and tells you.

Thank you for your input but we are a little confused with your review. We have 3 riding mules they are very gentle, sure-footed, smooth gaited and great to ride in the backcountry. Our mules do well at camp and go on most pack trips either being ridden or packed with gear. We have had guests ask if they can ride a horse instead of a mule and they are given a horse to ride and we have also had requests to ride a mule. As for the other trip that was in camp (2) gentlemen on a fishing trip were riding horses and were no relation to us. The part about only family ride horses is not true or correct. My cousin and her family did ride into camp for a night stay but they were riding their own horses on an unguided trip. The latrine we have is a canvas tent set up with a wooden box that has a toilet seat on it over top of a deep hole dug in the ground. (outhouse) It is the best we can do in a remote backcountry camp with no running water or plumbing. The tents that are on our website are the ones used in camp. A few of the tents are near new and others have some wear on them but still in nice shape as are the cots and sleeping pads. All tents are covered with a sheet of plastic to keep them dry from the rain. This is a backcountry camp but we do put a lot of effort and time into making sure we offer a nice comfortable camp. We only advertise our pack trips on our website and we don’t have a brochure with a picture of our camp. Not sure what was meant with camp not looking like the brochure. This is not true because it is a exact picture of camp. Sorry for any confusion on how you thought the trip was advertised. It is important to us that everyone has a nice and enjoyable trip with us. Thank you.

I was nervous about riding after being off a horse for so many years & issues that make getting on & off horse scary for me. But all the people there were SO pleasant, reassuring and helpful with the on and off! And guide was helpful, patient, informative & upbeat throughout ride. Read the other review of going down side of road & above Snake River: we did the 2 hour ride & ours started out & ended on that stretch too, but in between went up & back down side of a mountain that had awesome views. Overall definitely recommend; especially due to fantastic staff.
