Pack Trips

We offer a wide variety of trips to fit your abilities and desires. The trips we offer range from 2 to 10 days. You can do a base camp trip and explore the region around there or do a progressive trip and travel to several new camp sites during your trip. Travel on horses up mountain valleys and across mountain passes, and let the beauty take your breath away. Then set camp next to some of the most pristine lakes and rivers. We ride an average of 4 to 5 hours a day and cover 10 to 15 miles per day.

Our camps are clean and comfortable, sleeping tents are made of waterproof canvas and offer sleeping pads. Solar shower and latrine are available. Canvas flies and tarps will offer shelter from sun and occasional rain shower. Sit around the campfire in cozy chairs and enjoy the camaraderie of friends and family, telling joke and stories of days gone by and hear an occasional cowboy song. Cooks will prepare meals over the fire and on propane stove and are served family style. Enjoy entries like steaks, chops, chicken, burgers, spaghetti for dinner, as well as all the fixings, light appetizers and wine. Breakfasts include bacon, eggs, sausage, pancakes plus many more. Lunches are usually sack lunches (because we are usually out on the trail exploring).

Stationary Trips

On stationary trips we travel to a base camp area and stay in that camp for the duration of your trip. We day ride, hike, fish and explore from there. This is a very relaxing trip. These trips are great for corporate get aways. Enjoy a mountain game of volley ball or whiffle ball on these trips. Trips can range from 2 to 10 days.
