Horseback Riding In Bishop, CA

Eastern Sierra on Horseback

Swing into the saddle for an hour, a day, or a week. Many canyons leading into the back country of the Eastern Sierra offer horseback riding facilities with professional pack outfitters that can deliver a trip just for you. Professional pack outfits offer a wide variety of specialized trips and adventures with gentle, mountain-savvy horses that can make your exploration of the high country more enjoyable. All equipment, sleeping bag, stove, tent, and food are packed onto the backs of mules while you ride a horse through the beauty of the High Sierra. Pack stations offer picnic and scenic day rides, as well as extended trips into the wilderness lead by professional guides who will even set up an entire camp and cook all your meals for you, leaving you time to enjoy the backcountry. Pack trips offered include fishing trips, Wild Mustang viewing, Pack-it-in & Pack-it-out services, stock drives and more.


Questions about supported hiking trips? These packers are professionals at getting food and gear into the high country and make these multi-day hiking trips way more fun.

WILDERNESS PERMITS: All wilderness permits for guests who hire a packer for a supported hiking trip, aka dunnage and cache (pack it in/pack it out) are provided through the Pack Station commercial quota allocation. These wilderness permits are not issued from the general public quota. If you are riding or hiking with a pack station, the permit will be issued from their commercial quota.
