Grand Teton and Yellowstone Horse Pack Trips
Explore the West in a whole new way. Book a Teton Horse Pack Trip today. Located between Jackson Hole and Yellowstone National Park.
We invite you to take part in a Western experience that not many have the privilege to see. Teton Horseback Adventures offers 2 to 6 Day Guided Horse Pack Trips into the Greater Teton and Yellowstone backcountry.
Our family heritage consists of six generations riding and working these mountains and are one of the few local families still left here in the Jackson Hole area. We offer professionalism and experience to meet your expectations and create memories that will last forever.
WE DO NOT LEASE HORSES! This is the secret to our amazing safety record. Each horse has his or her own personality, and matching these personalities between horse and rider make all the difference. We own around 100 head of horses and mules, many of which we’ve raised and trained ourselves. So you can be assured they know what they’re doing (and yes we know every one of their names).
A few reasons why you should choose Teton Horseback Adventures:
- A family run business
- Private groups or small mixed groups never exceeding 6-8 total
- Experienced horses and crew
- NOTHING BEATS THE TETONS

I just returned from a three-day, two-night pack trip to Cottonwood Camp led by Heith and Shalaina and could not be more pleased with the experience. Heith and Shalaina led our city-slicker group of 12 (pretty inexperienced) riders into the mountains with such grace and patience, and I can confidently say that everyone had the time of their lives.
Cottonwood Camp was lovely. From what I gleaned from H&S, the camp is semi-permanent during the warmer (non-snowy) months and therefore didn’t require assembly upon arrival. Each tent was spacious enough to stand and move around in, and the cots and pads provided a comfortable sleeping arrangement! There is also a well-stocked kitchen tent where Shalaina would whip up feasts in the middle of the forest as if by magic.
H&S packed enough food to keep us more than full the entire time–everything Shalaina cooked for breakfast and dinner (pancakes, baon, steaks, meatloaf, veggies) was delicious and filling. Shalaina also packed our group bag lunches for the three days we were on the trip which were a big hit.
It was so nice to sit around the campfire at night with the whole group listening to H&S’s stories and learn about their lives in WY (Heith was also a very good sport when the group prodded him to give impromptu lasso lessons).
I would not hesitate to recommend a trip to Cottonwood Camp to anyone–save someone who may have a fear of horses! We were riding for around a total of 10 hours over the three days.
Thank you, Heith & Shalaina! (and Miyagi 😉

I chose Outfitter Heith Hill because I didn’t just want to take a trail ride in the Teton Wilderness (Don’t get me wrong, they do great trail rides too.), I wanted a Wilderness Adventure and by God he delivered just that. For five days, he took us with a string of pack mules and horses across countless streams, meadows, and through mountain passes with views so spectacular not even a camera can capture the full awesome beauty of it all. Each night we dined by an open campfire and the next morning struck out on the trail to another destination more breathtaking than the last. At one point, we were in the most remote location in all of the lower 48 states. Nowhere else could I have safely enjoyed the pleasure and experience of refilling my drink bottle from spring-fed mountain streams. Before this, I have always looked at pictures and read about such scenic vistas as this but seeing unspoiled country firsthand like this was far grander than I had ever imagined. Teton Horseback Adventures is the real thing. If you want to discover some of the beauty and wonder explorers like Bridger, Powell, and mountain men and trappers extolled there was to see out west then the Teton Wilderness trip is what you want to plan for. It’s the journey of a lifetime. This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
