Giddy up! No Jackson Hole vacation would be complete without the presence of these majestic animals, we've found a few different ways for you and your family to incorporate horses into your next visit to Jackson Hole. Trail riding is just the beginning!
Hit the trails by horseback
Choose one of the most popular trail ride providers for your next Jackson Hole Vacation: Mill Iron Ranch. This locally owned and operated company has been in business since 1921, and an impressive four generations of the Wheeldon family have carried on the old cowboy traditions visitors will still find there today. Mill Iron Ranch offers a range of trail rides for Jackson Hole visitors, from 2-hour trail rides through the awe-inspiring Bridger-Teton National Forest to multi-day pack trips. In fact, their 2-hour trail ride was rated the #1 two-hour trail ride in the United States!
Take a trip on an old-fashioned wagon train
Now, this is a real once-in-a-lifetime adventure! Teton Covered Wagon Train and Horse Adventure will take you and your family on a 4-day, 3-night adventure on a modern recreation of a Conestoga wagon. The Cowboys of Double H Bar Ranches will guide you through the beautiful and historic land between Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park in the Targhee National Forest, where you'll camp, eat, and experience a taste of life in the good old days.
Have a real rodeo experience
Putnam Horsemanship in Jackson Hole offers a horse experience you won't find anywhere else in the area: a hands-on introduction to the timed-events portions of rodeo! Here, you and your family can learn and experience team roping, barrel racing and more. Their Introduction To Rodeo program is both fun and exciting. In no time you'll learn the skills necessary to make you look like a rodeo pro (even if it really IS your first rodeo).
