Horseback Riding

From our herd of 60 horses you will be assigned your own horse  for the duration of your stay. Our head wrangler will match the horse and rider according to ability, physical requirements and horse temperament. Goosewing wranglers are experienced horsemen & women and will instruct you in our arena and on the trail on how to ride well for a memorable Jackson Hole horseback riding experience. All wranglers are First Aid and CPR certified and have taken the DRA horse safety course.  If all you want to do is walk and enjoy the scenery, we have the perfect trail; if you want to trot and lope, we have rides appropriate for this as well.  We also have cattle work (team penning) available for those who would like to try and are advanced enough to control their mounts.  Rides go out Monday – Saturday to different areas of the National Forest and Wilderness.  We offer 2, 4, and 6 hour long trail rides.  There is no riding on your check-in or check-out days.

  • Each ride is limited to 6 or 7 horses per wrangler
  • Riding lessons available in the arena or on the trail
  • Trail rides fit to your riding ability, beginner to advanced


Pack trips are available for all 5 and 10 night stays. A pack trip for 5 night stays begin by spending your first 3 nights at the ranch. You will leave on your 3rd day to begin riding into the Gros Ventre Wilderness area. Typically you will ride between 7 and 8 hours that day. You will make camp in the wilderness and spend the night staying in canvas wall tents and sleeping on cots. We will provide sleeping bags, and all the other gear you need. The only things you need to bring are a few layers of clothing, water bottles, etc. You will break camp the following morning and ride back out to the Gros Ventre valley. After getting out of the back country you will can collect your things and head into the town of Jackson to spend your final night in comfort. We will book a cabin for you at Jackson’s luxurious Rustic Inn or Lexington Inn in Jackson Hole.
