Horse & Mule Packing Clinic

May 20 @ 9:00 am - May 21 @ 3:00 pm


Join us at FORT VALLEY RANCH for a horse and mule packing clinic.

Our goal is to teach you how to get you, your gear, supplies, and animals into and out of the mountains, safely and efficiently.

You will learn both traditional as well as modern packing techniques utilizing pack saddles, saddle panniers or stock saddles.

Learn to pack camping gear, horse feed or even building supplies using a variety of techniques.

We will show you how to safely lead or pony your pack animals and how to assemble a pack string to lead more than one animal.

Don’t have pack gear?  No problem…Call us for suggestions on what gear you should buy for your needs.  Want to try before you buy? We will have a limited amount of equipment available for demonstration and participant use.  Please call us for details.


Clinic Hours: Begin – 9:00 AM Saturday, May 20th     End – Sunday, May 21st early to mid afternoon


Clinic Cost: $100 per person…Includes both days (does not include camping or horse boarding during clinic)


About your instructor…Les Voorhis has spent the better part of the past 20 years working with outfitters, packing and guiding into wilderness areas in Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Arizona, Montana, Yellowstone National Park and the Tetons.  Les is currently the head wrangler for Fort Valley Ranch.
