Wyoming’s Teton Wilderness adjoins Yellowstone Park on its north boundary, the Washakie Wilderness on its east side and Grand Teton Park to the west. All combined, this totals over 3,500,000 acres of possibly the grandest country in the Rocky Mountain chain. Visitors come from around the world to the tune of 4 million plus annually. Yet only a fraction of these people get off the beaten path and experience the true backcountry.
Dave Hettinger Outfitting offers safe and enjoyable camping horse tours of this magnificent backcountry area. Photography, fishing, wildlife and wildflower viewing, horsemanship, and the age old art of packing along with daily scenic horseback rides are a sample of things to occupy body and mind. DHO offers progressive trips for small groups. On these trips we move to a different campsite every day or every other day. One camp location trips are also an option where we remain at one campsite for the duration of the trip.
On either style trip, your safety, comfort and enjoyment is of the utmost importance to us. Camp will consist of lightweight sleeping tents, but roomy enough to stand up plus accommodate comfortable cots with pads. All you can eat meals are served under a dining fly. A sanitary toilet is always part of our camp. Solar showers are used and simply hung overhead. Your outfitter is on all trips assuring personalized service.
On our trips, guests can expect to ride 4-6 hours daily with frequent stops. We recommend youths be a minimum of 12 years of age, but have taken some as young as 8.
