Riding Requirements & Considerations
A rider with little or no experience who is unable to post the trot and does not canter.
A rider with limited experience who can mount and dismount unassisted, capable of applying basic aids, is comfortable and in control at the walk, moderate length posting trots, and short canters. A rider who is confident and in control in all paces, but with limited experience riding in open country, galloping or is not currently riding fit.
A rider who is confident, with a firm seat and in control in all paces (including posting trots, two point canters and gallops) with lots of experience riding in open country alone or in a group. An intermediate rider would be reasonably fit and able to enjoy 3 – 4 hours in the saddle.
Strong Intermediate and/or Advanced
An experienced rider who is comfortable and confident to walk, trot, canter and gallop across all terrain – alone or in a group. An advanced rider would be riding fit and happy to spend 4 – 6 hours in the saddle or undertake more intensive cross country riding. This rider has all of the above mentioned abilities, plus an independent seat, soft hands, and a desire to handle a spirited horse in open country.
Children – Age Restrictions
Please contact us for all questions relating children participating in our experiences prior to making any booking.
Overnight Pack Trip Considerations
Custom horseback riding vacations pack trips take months to plan and implement. We take into consideration the vision of our clients and the projected conditions on the ground to build each experience. Much depends on historical weather projections to help determine the trailhead and trajectory of the trip. If its storming heavily in the Wind River Range, we can pivot to alternative routes in the Absarokas if necessary. Much depends on Joe’s knowledge of the terrain and what he feels the client is really hoping to accomplish.
We don’t do cookie cutter trips. We do Real. We like to explore. Before you book a multi day horseback riding vacations trip in the back country, be honest with yourself. Be honest about what you really want and who you really are. Back country trips can be transformative for our clients, even for us after all these years. Each and every time. AND we are in Wyoming, one of the most rural states in the lower 48. Yes, bears are real. We are riding horses, hiking, out of cell phone service and generally submerged in nature. It rains, snows, blows, storms. Lightning hits the mountain top. We ride up to the mountain tops. Every weather condition imaginable happens within 5 minutes. And then, you are taking pictures of a golden sunset w/ your jacket tied around your waist. OR you are sitting inside the tent, in JULY listening to hail drumming on the fly of the cook-tent, drinking hot tea to warm your fingers and waiting for dinner to be served.
If the sound of that gives you pause…TOTALLY UNDERSTANDABLE. We often ask ourselves what we are thinking! Consider trying out a half day or full day horseback ride first before submerging yourself in an experience that you really don’t want. If you think it sounds totally up your ally and exciting, we are still going to ask you a lot of questions about what you are seeking by booking a backcountry horseback riding vacations trip.
Because we have to tell the horses, then they tell us yea or nay.
We want you to have the best time on your ride, and that requires a little bit of preparation on your part. Below are some things you will need in order to spend time out on the trail:
Overnight Pack Trip
Guests are permitted to take 1 duffle bag on the trip. The maximum weight of this bag is 70 lbs. A clothing and gear checklist will be sent prior to the trip to guide your preparations.
Cancellation & Gratuity
Susan and I just wanted to say thank you to you, Joe and especially Bernie for a wonderful experience. We had a great time on the horseback ride. Thank you so much for accommodating our schedule so that we could see even more of the beauty of Wyoming. Bernie was a great guide and we thoroughly enjoyed his company, knowledge of the area, and the fun size snacks offered by the creek. What a treat to have Captain tag along. My dog Lily usually gets her pre-filled bones from the local pet store. Captain can find his own bones complete with deer hoof still attached! He was particularly pleased to show us the critter he found as well. Thank you again. The horseback ride was definitely a highlight of our trip. We love it here in Dubois and we hope to return again next year. When we do, we will definitely reach out to schedule a ride. This time we hope we can bring our husbands boys along too. Again, we want to again express our
thanks to Bernie for being such a great host.
Traci & Joe,
Thank you again for making it happen [despite our truck trouble] We really appreciate it. We plan on writing a glowing review when we get back to Milwaukee…Joe was s uch a fantastic guide and we left feeling such a sense of awe.
