Spring is in the air, the travel bug is biting, and you’re on your computer looking up possible adventures that you can experience with your loved ones. And if you’re anything like us, you want it to be something amazing – something that you’ll look back on fondly for a lifetime. What better way to experience the splendor and beauty of Wyoming than the way that the original explorers did – by horseback? If a ride through the mountains is in your plans, read on! Here, our guides will share some tips on finding the best horseback riding in Jackson Hole so that you can have a truly unforgettable experience.

Of course, we think that WE have the best horseback riding tours in not just Jackson, but the entire country. However, we also recognize that we might be just a little biased. Still, feel free to check out our rides and rates and give us a call if you have any questions. And now, without further ado, let’s get down to business!

How Long Do You Want To Be In The Saddle?

If you’ve ridden a horse before, then you know what it’s like to be saddle sore. If not, well, let’s just say it’s a very special kind of discomfort. We’ve actually grown to like that feeling because it means that we’ve gotten out, spent some time in nature, made some great memories, and bonded with friends both human and equine. But if you don’t ride often or haven’t ever ridden, then it’s worth considering how long you want to be in the saddle. 

Our goal is to help you experience and enjoy Wyoming’s greatest outdoors in a way that’s fun, awe-inspiring, and unique. Odds are, you don’t want to be so uncomfortable that you can’t think of anything else (and we don’t want you to feel that way either.) So, consider how long you want to be riding and what your discomfort tolerance is. We offer longer rides that are more scenic and secluded than many other outfitters in the Jackson Hole area, including day trips and overnight campouts. If you’re wanting to spend a day or more riding through the spectacular mountains of Wyoming, then we’re definitely the outfitter for you!

How Much Does Seclusion Matter?

Do you want to travel the beaten bath or get into Wyoming’s true wilderness? It takes time and effort to get to the places where no one else goes, but it’s well worth it. On the other hand, you may want your horseback ride to be a smaller (but still memorable) part of your overall Jackson Hole experience – which means that you likely won’t have the time to get into the more rugged, isolated country. In the wilderness of Wyoming, your ride will be beautiful no matter what. But how much of an adventure you want is definitely something to think about as you’re planning your trip.

Do You Want To Incorporate Other Experiences Into Your Ride?

At Shoal Creek Outfitters, we specialize in taking people fishing – and in some of the best fishing areas in the entire country. While many other outfitters and guides offer only one experience at a time, we often combine our horseback riding experiences with amazing fishing (and hunting) that you will remember for a lifetime. So before you book, consider whether you’d like to do anything else in addition to riding. Our overnight and multi-day trips combine stunning scenery with great fishing – cozy wall tents and home-cooked meals included!

Do You Want A Customized Trip?

“The best horseback riding in Jackson Hole” means different things to different people, which is why we offer customizable trips that are designed to give you the adventure you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a trip that’s tailored to your needs, then please give us a call at 307-413-1893.

Again, we’re biased because we think that we offer the best horseback riding in Jackson Hole, but we hope this article helps make your decision easier as you plan your amazing adventure in the backcountry. No matter what, you’re sure to be amazed by Wyoming’s natural beauty!
