“Paddles and Saddles”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 via mobile

Combination of horse riding, lunch and white water rafting. I have sat on a horse once, in front of Egyptian Pyramids. Second time was better, amazing views of Grand Tetons. Horses very docile , doubt that I made any difference. Teenage kids loved it, so did my wife. Lunch at The Granary on the ranch included, amazing views again, chips are to die for according to my teenage son. In the afternoon we did the rafting on the snake river. Rapids are great, bring towels for afterwards, water is cold, but you are allowed to jump in. Guided and staff are very friendly. Saw Osprey and Bald Eagle. You can buy pictures from the ride at Springcreek Ranch and pictures from the rafting in town, they take them at one of the fast rapids.
Great day according to normally easily bored teenage kids, they forgot about Facebook all day. Must be the highest compliment possible..

Thank Jan K

“Excellent time - very safe”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We had an excellent time on the Snake river. Our guide Danny was very professional and kept us entertained during the entire trip. Made it fun for both the adults and the children. He made sure that everyone had an opportunity to get a good splash which is a big part of the fun. Water temperature was cold, but not unbearable. The entire experience felt very safe with good instructions on what to do in case someone fell in the water. This can happen, but is a relatively safe occurence. Recommend for first timers. What a great treat!

“Definitely a must-do in Jackson Hole !”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

The 13 mile scenic float trip on the Snake River was awesome. We did the late afternoon trip which takes two hours and part of the package was a BBQ steak or chicken dinner back at their headquarters on Broadway. the weather was perfect, we saw many bald eagles, including their 2,000 lb nest. Our guide Ian was superb, and very knowledgable , Annika took over the oars for part of the trip , she also did a great job.

“Another Great Ride!!”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

We did the whitewater several years ago with family so we went back again with a group of friends this year end of May. Water was up and we had an awesome guide in Tristan (who by the way, has the same name as my son). Everyone in our group had a blast and are ready to go back. One of our younger members was a little frightened after the bus ride and instructions about what to do if you fell out, but our guide put him at ease and he actually jumped in before the end of the ride. Can't wait to get back to Jackson Hole and do it again. Keep up the great work!!
