Grand Teton and Yellowstone Horse Pack Trips

Experience a unique Western adventure with Teton Horseback Adventures. We offer 3- to 6-day guided horse pack trips into the Greater Teton and Yellowstone backcountry. Unlike others, we don’t lease horses, ensuring you a safer and more familiar ride. With about 150 horses and mules, many of which we’ve raised and trained ourselves, you can trust their expertise. As a family-run business, we host private or small groups of up to 6-8 people, providing experienced guides and even our hardworking dog, Penelope. There’s nothing like exploring the Tetons!

Trip of a Lifetime

The 5-day Bridger Lake pack trip was the trip of a lifetime! Heath and Shalaina were very accommodating to this inexperienced horse riding, 71-year-old lady. From helping me on and off my horse to providing meals you’d get at home, they were very gracious. Mr. Brown and Riley took great care of the animals and set up our tents, complete with cots and sleeping pads. The camaraderie around the campfire each night added to the list of fond memories to be treasured and relived. Thank you does not seem adequate. You are blessed to be living the dream.
