Horse Wranglers

We are looking for bright young men and women to pack and wrangle horses for us in the Wind River Range in western Wyoming.
We’ve been guiding and packing here for 47 years and trained hundreds of great young employees to handle horses safely and give our guests a wonderful experience in alpine wilderness.
We use “natural” horsemanship methods like Ray Hunt, Buck Brannamann and Bryan Neubert teach (taught in Hunt’s case.) We raise and train our own good horses and they are quiet, willing and fun to use. Our herd numbers 75. We provide room and board, saddles and a wage.
We are looking for persons able to come for the last 1 or 2 weeks of August, 2014 since we are short-handed immediately, and also for the 2015 season. Please visit our website or contact us with questions.
