Toogle Adventure Horsepacking Expedition

There's nothing quite like seeing the wilderness on horseback.

We'll take you from the NOLS-owned and -operated Three Peaks Ranch into the wilderness and immerse you in the basics of Western horsepacking skills—care and feeding, horse behavior and herd dynamics, tack, saddling, and riding—and other unique experiences of packing and traveling with horses.

You'll care for your saddle horse and work together with a partner to load and lead your packhorse. You'll also be in charge of your own wellbeing in the backcountry, learning how to choose a good campsite and cook a good meal.

Share this wilderness experience not only with your fellow students and instructors, but also with the worthy companionship of horses.

Horse packing participants gather together to consult a map.
