Beard Outfitters

Wyoming Pack Trips. Ride a horse to the backcountry of Teton and Yellowstone!


Beard Outfitters' guided horseback trips through the Jedediah Smith Wilderness on the west slope of the majestic Teton Mountain Range are an experience of a lifetime. You'll enjoy a full day of horseback riding through fields of wild flowers, quiet streams, glacier lakes, and wildlife on one of our gentle mountain bred horses.

Horseback Pack Trip Highlights:

  1. Full day of riding through fields of wild flowers, quiet streams, glacier lakes, and wildlife
  2. Evening campfire, dutch oven meal, and fresh dutch oven huckleberry cobbler
  3. Crystal clear skies uninhibited by city lights, allowing you to see stars, meteors, and the Milky Way
  4. Wake up to the smell of fresh coffee, bacon, and a cowboy breakfast

Each evening you'll be made comfortable next to the warmth of a crackling fire while enjoying a hearty dutch oven meal, prepared by your horseback guides. For dessert, we'll have dutch oven cobbler made from fresh huckleberries that we'll pick during our daily rides.

Lay out under the star-filled sky and let the pleasant sounds of the night put you to sleep. You'll be in a place where you've never seen so many stars in the night sky. Uninhibited by city lights, you'll see deep into the Milky Way Galaxy. With the naked eye, you'll also be able to see shooting stars and several satellites passing overhead. A place only a horseback ride can take you.

Wake up in the morning to the scent of coffee brewing and bacon frying over the campfire. You'll enjoy a hot cowboy breakfast served by your hosts in preparation for another adventure-filled day.

Beard Outfitters has been Wyoming's leading horseback guide for over 40 years. We can accommodate horseback riders from all levels of experience and will make your trip not only fun, but something to provide memories for years to come. We own all of our horses and equipment, which means we understand and know each animal. We'll match you to one of our horses based on your personal riding abilities. Whether you are a seasoned veteran when it comes to riding horses, or a beginner to horseback trail rides, you'll have an enjoyable time.

We welcome families and have found these pack trips and trail rides to be a great experience for families. However, we do have a minimum age for riders, which is 10 years old with some previous horseback riding experience.

There are several alpine lakes and small mountain streams located throughout most of our trips, so bring along your fishing rod and try your hand at catching some cutthroat trout. Bait cast and lures work well in the early season (June - July) and flies are our favorite later in the season (August - September).
