No trip to the Old West is complete without a horseback ride through Grand Teton National Park! We offer 1 and 2 hour horseback rides departing from Jackson Lake Lodge and Colter Bay Village, and 1 hour rides from Headwaters at Flagg Ranch. Beginners are welcome! Take in the beautiful vistas while riding among wildflower meadows and pristine lakes under the towering Teton peaks. Our wranglers will guide you along the trails while providing insight into the area's history, wildlife and flora.
Activity options and availability are subject to change.

If your children are too young to participate in a horseback ride, bring them to the corral for a 10-minute wrangler-led ride on one of our child-friendly horses or ponies. A pony ride is a wonderful experience and a great way to introduce younger children to the magic of horseback riding.
