Idaho Hiking VacationHiking Supported by Horse Pack Stock
Using pack stock offers the avid hiker the ability to explore without the burden of a heavy back pack while our mountain horses transport your personal gear. We will pack your equipment and food while you hike at your leisure to a prearranged camp site. Your packer will take care of all stock and transporting your gear. Eliminating a heavy backpack allows adventurers of all ages and ability to explore at ease. Using pack stock allows you the freedom to travel further, eat hearty western meals, and have more time to relax and enjoy the wilderness.

Hiking with Pack Stock Using Your Equipment and Food

We can either drop your equipment at a prearranged destination of your choice or your packer will continue on with you for a progressive trip. You will be responsible for your own camp chores and cooking. Your packer will take care of all stock and transporting your gear. On progressive trips the packer will provide his own camping equipment, food, riding horse and will be responsible for his own camp chores.   Progressive trips require that the packer has a pack horse in addition to his riding horse.  Price is based on a 150 pound weight limit per packhorse and an eight hour round trip day.  Along with the weight, it is important to remember that the size of your items are a factor on how much you can put on a horse.  Try to minimize both the size and weight of all items.  Because of the sheer bulk of items and the size of the pack a horse can carry, loads may not always be able to weigh 150 pounds.

Cost: $125.00 per horse and a $150.00 Guide fee per day plus tax.
5 Horse minimum of 4 client horses + guide's horse.
