WY • Sleeping Indian Outfitters

Tucked in the Bridger-Teton National Forest, Sleeping Indian Outfitters offers private horseback riding, hunting, and fishing trips through some of the most beautiful scenery Wyoming has to offer. You'll feel right at home with the delicious wholesome meals and generous wisdom of your guides.


Sleeping Indian Ranch is located in the Bridger-Teton National Forest near Bondurant, Wyoming. It's in an isolated mountain valley on the Hoback River about thirty minutes outside of Jackson Hole. 

Trail Rides

Sleeping Indian outfitters offers exclusive horseback trips off the beaten path. You and your party will get to go on a private ride tailored to suit your needs.

Garden Creek: a 2 hour horseback ride for all riding levels. Includes creek and river crossings, panoramic mountain views, and great potential for wildflowers and wildlife.

Shoal Creek half-day: a 3-4 hour horseback ride for all riding levels. Includes everything that the Garden Creek ride offers and more! Optional sack lunch.

Shoal Creek Ride & Fish: a full day horseback excursion over the river and through the woods to Shoal Creek where you can fish to your hearts content before making the trek home. Includes a yummy sack lunch and fishing gear if needed. 

Shoal Falls Pack Trip: from two nights up to a full week, you can stay in the heart of the Gros Ventre mountains, just a few miles from the exquisite Shoal Falls. This ride includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as all the camping gear you will need (except sleeping bags and clothes). 

Cliff Creek Falls Full Day: ride up the gorgeous Cliff Creek Canyon to the very remote Cliff Creek Falls. Sleeping Indian Outfitters is the only horseback riding outfit with the permits to offer trips here, so this is a very exclusive trip! Includes lunch at the falls and plenty of time to explore the area before heading back home.

Garden Creek Dinner Ride: an evening horseback ride that includes creek and river crossings and beautiful mountain vistas. Half-way through your ride, you'll pull off the trail for a steak supper in the mountains, surrounded by wildflowers and curious antelope.

Poker Ride: Every summer Sleeping Indian Outfitters hosts two horseback poker rides to get the community together for some fun and to help raise money for Kickin Cancer in Sublette County.


Sleeping Indian Outfitters is a small, family-owned operation. Paul and Sharon Crittenden started it thirty years ago as a lasting hunting outfit. Paul is now in the process of passing the reins to his son, Sam, who was born and raised on the ranch.

Sam guides the pack and hunting trips, sharing his second generation wisdom of the area with guests. Sam's wife, Alix, moved west from North Carolina in 2008. She and her pony Tuff guide most of the day rides. On the trail, the guides will encourage you to spread out and will help you learn how to ride your horse rather than just sit on it. 


The family is completed by about 20 horses and mules. 

Additional Activities

Hunting: the number of hunters on each trip are limited to give you the personal experience you deserve, preserve the quality of the resident herds, and insure excellent hunting in the future. 7 day hunting trips are recommended, but Sleeping Indian Outfitters will accept reservations for any length of time. 

Fishing: you can go on float trips on the Green and New Fork Rivers where the opportunity for catching trophy trout abounds. Take in the beautiful views of the Wind River mountains as your experienced guides take you to the best parts of this fishing wonderland. 


Lodging is available in the hunting lodge, bunkhouse, or wall tents. You will begin each day with a hearty home cooked breakfast, and hot home cooked meal will be waiting for you when you get home at night. You'll be provided with a sack lunch for your day on the trail.
