Frequently Asked Questions

Is alcohol allowed/served on the trip?

No. Horses and back-country settings do not mix well with alcohol.

What is the restroom situation?

We call them “fine forest service facilities.” There is a pit outhouse in each of the three camps. 

Are these “dude ranch” horses we will be riding?

No. All our horses are gentle but do not have to be in the same order every time. We have horses for all skill levels of riders.

Where do we sleep at night?

We have cowboy teepees that sleep 2 people on individual high-density foam mattresses. On clear nights you may also sleep on a tarp out under the stars.

How many fit in a tent?

Our cowboy teepees will sleep 2 adults comfortably with all your luggage.

What do I do with my extra luggage while I am on the wagon train?

Some of the hotels in Jackson allow you to store your extra luggage there. If not, we will store it for you.

Where do I park my car while I am on the wagon train?

Some of the hotels in Jackson allow you to park in their lots while on the trip. Ask the front desk. If not, we have a small lot that you can park in.

Is there a weight limit to go on the wagon train or to ride horseback?


How many hours a day do we travel?

Generally, we will be on the road for 2-3 hours a day. The longest trip is broken up into 2 segments, each 2 hours long, with lunch in the middle.

Can I bring my own horse?

No. Our horses are used to the environment, the altitude and each other. We have limited space in which to keep the horses and cannot accommodate outside animals.
