The jagged Wind River mountains are the backdrop to this spectacular country.
Framing the view for these horseback riding retreats are glacier-covered Temple Peak and Roaring Fork mountain, both at over 13,000 feet in elevation.
The Continental Divide, nicknamed the “backbone of the Rockies” traverses within a quarter mile of the horse camp, and the Little Sandy River flows right through the entire location.
At the camp elevation of 7900′, summer time temperatures seldom exceed 80 degrees and the nights are cool and pleasant. There are no snakes and few insects to bother you or the horses during the days’ riding or around the campfire.
The schedule varies from day to day, but you can plan on breakfast between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. each morning, starting the ride by 9:00 and riding, with short breaks, until lunchtime.
We’ll “noon up” somewhere and have lunch, let the horses graze and rest for about an hour and then we’ll re-mount and go again for a few more hours, with short breaks throughout the afternoon.
Arrival back at the home base along the river is between 3:30 and 4:00 p.m. just in time for cocktails and hors de’ oeuvres.
Depending on the days’ riding and how many miles the group wants to cover, you can expect to be on horseback an average about 5-6 hours and cover from 10-25 miles each day.
