Bring Your Own Horses Base Camp

Custom planned trip for your riding group.
We ride in to a fully outfitted base camp and do daily rides from there. The camp is typically set up in advance and we pack in your personal items when we ride in. These trips are only suitable for experienced trail horses and riders.

Horses or mules that you bring must meet these conditions:
  • Be properly conditioned for the planned activity
  • Well shod and hooves in good condition
  • Accustomed to wearing hobbles and being tied up for long periods of time
  • Generally calm on the trail and experienced in a variety of terrain and conditions

Make sure your gear is in good condition.  Work out any gear or major training issues with your animal before planning a backcountry trip. 

The cost for this trip will depend on group size and other details - please call!
