Take a ride that goes back to a simpler way of seeing the West.
Many of the first tourists to Jackson Hole came here to play at being cowboys and cowgirls. They stayed at dude ranches, often for a month at a time, and rode horses every day. Today it’s still worth spending at least part of the day on horseback. Time in the saddle offers a unique way to slow down and sightsee while connecting with the heritage of Jackson Hole’s settlers and visitors. No experience is required and outfitters offer rides as short as one hour.
Even if you’re not staying at a dude ranch, you may be able to take advantage of their horseback tours. Horseback rides near town offer convenience and the ability to fill your day with multiple activities, while the further from town you venture, the more adventurous your ride will be.
