Horseback riding in Jackson Hole offers a priceless way to experience sweeping mountain views and live the wild west lifestyle. Spring Creek Ranch is the only lodging option located close to town and the “Westbank” with stables on site, and guests and non-guests alike are invited up for an affordable and unforgettable ride.
Beginners and experts and all ages are welcome! You’ll be matched with a four-legged friend that suits your experience level.

(plus about 16 hands) from the top of the horse. Rides are offered for one to four hours.
Breakfast/Dinner Horseback Rides are also available. Take a one-hour ride with Spring Creek Ranch’s W.W. Guides atop the ridge at Spring Creek with a hearty meal to follow outside the corral area. Minimum of six people. All ages welcome.
“Like most trail rides, the horses know the way. Our guide rode up front and the 6 of us all followed in a line. The views were stunning. We saw Jackson’s downtown area and Snow King as well as sweeping views of Grand Teton National Park and the famed Tetons.” — Painted Buffalo
Spring Creek Ranch Horseback Riding Essentials
Experienced wranglers will saddle and fetch a horse for you. Experts in “equine sciences,” they’ll take a quick history of your horse ability, suss you up, and bring you the “proper” steed, like “Little Joe,” “Dusty,” “Major,” etc. All you have to do is step up off the stool and grab hold of the reins and go!
Dress comfortably in long pants like jeans and, as always in Jackson Hole, bring a few layers in case it gets cold. A hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are recommended since the sun at high altitude is particularly strong. Boots or sneakers are suitable for horse friendly footwear.
If you want to wear a cowboy hat or cowboy boots, there are plenty of places to shop for them in town.
