Horseback Riding Adventures with Jessica

Wildlife outnumbers the residents ten-fold and animals are commonly seen any day of the year in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, which is home to many species of wildlife including elk, mule deer, moose, pronghorn, birds, gray wolves, and a wide variety of fish.  Throughout this vast wilderness, there are over 1,300 named lakes!

Come and see these magnificent animals and majestic views from on top of our gentle horses. Experiences are geared toward the level of the rider.*
