Details for Wilderness Horseback Pack Trips

Active Adventure


.
2010 was our 43rd year of outfitting in Yellowstone National Park and the Black Hills & Badlands of South Dakota. With Gunsel Horse Adventures you are going back in time to a time when you could ride for days and never hit a fence. When you rode into a camp you were offered a cup of coffee and maybe even a meal if it was the right time of day. We have excellent horses that are used for riding, packing in YellowstoneNational Park, Mid-July thru August, herding Buffalo. (Buffalo Roundup- Custer State Park, South Dakota Sept 23rd to Sept 26th, 2011 ) . Our adventures are geared to fit from the most inexperienced rider to the rider that can ride the hair off most anything. The youngest rider we have taken in to the backcountry was 4 years old. His family has been on ten trips with us in Yellowstone and the Black Hills of South Dakota. The oldest person was 81 years young and says he's going again.

Age range, type of group


If a person can sit a horse, age doesn't mean a thing. I recommend the youngest be 5 years old and the oldest not over a hundred. The main thing is a spirit of adventure and a can-do attitude. Families, couples, singles and kids will enjoy these trips. We will do everything in our power to make each individual a better rider and gain some wilderness skills. You can participate in all activities of camp or not, it is your choice. `

Sleeping and meals


Sleeping arrangements are usually two people to a tent unless it is a family group and then we have special tents. All tents have floors & zippers. You will need your own sleeping bag. All of our cooking is done on propane pack stoves and some campfires. Our menus are varied but 1st night- its Chicken Fried Steak, 2nd- night Boneless Pork Chops, 3rd night-Ribeye tips. Breakfasts consist of pancakes, french toast, bacon and sauage. Depending on the day. Sack lunches are furnished each day.

Restrictions


Pets are not allowed in the backcountry, smoking is not allowed on the trail and in really dry areas, not allowed at all. Ages 5 to 100, as long as they can handle the riding. The only restrictions in Yellowstone as far as horse camping is concerned is that you have to use designated sites for camping. In some areas, you can brush pop with out the pack horses but you do have to camp in designated areas. The beauty of it is there are still places that seem as though no one has been there ahead of you. And they will stay that way, only if every one does their share as far as not abusing the Beauty & Wonder of Yellowstone National Park and other wilderness areas.. We definitely believe that and act accordingly.

Rates


The rate for our 4 day pack trips & trail rides in South Dakota is $325.00 plus 5.5% sales tax per person per day. The rate for Yellowstone National Park Backcountry 4 day Pack Trips is $350.00 per person.

Trips with Michael Martin Murphey are $1800.00 plus 5.5% sales tax per person

Other Information


We have been outfitting in Yellowstone, the Black Hills & Badlands of South Dakota for 44 years, and Arizona for 6 years in 2010. Excellent horses, good food, magnificent scenery, great companionship, cowboy songs, stories and poems and abundant wildlife all make for wild and woolly western adventures.
