This year our annual cousin horse packing trip brought us to the Wind River range of Wyoming. Three days of riding with two nights tucked away in our Haven Tents.
Multi-day horse packing trips have traditionally required a train of horses. With big panniers being carried by a dedicated mule or pack horse. Over the years we've dialed in our system to be light enough for packing on a single horse with rider.
Carrying everything on one horse speeds up the rate of travel, makes packing and unpacking much quicker, and lowers our impact on wilderness areas we are traveling through.
This year all three of us had young horses which added another element to this ride over steep/rocky terrain. Here are some of the highlights!
