Welcome to Western Trail Rider, a site dedicated to those who enjoy horse and mule packing, camping, and trail riding in the western United States.
Do you ride great trails regularly and have a desire to share the information? Heading off on a wilderness adventure with your horse? Are you an outfitter or guide? How about a supplier with packing experience or tack and gear reviews? Want to start a blog under the WTR banner? Get some free exposure and help us promote the website and increase our membership. It just takes minutes to get you started. Send me an email.
Come join the fun!
Note: I have disabled the “Forums” menu link, due to the management load (keeping spam at bay) and the fact that it is not being used. It appears folks much prefer the ease and instant gratification of facebook to an online forum. If/when the demand warrants in the future, I will reactivate it. Meanwhile, please visit my facebook page, Western Trail Rider.
I have also disabled the “Donate” menu item, as it was created for the purpose of fund raising for the big pack trip. At this time we do not anticipate being able to complete the full 3,000 mile journey.
To those who donated funds, time, and other support, we send our sincerest gratitude. Even though we only made just over 550 miles, for a man in his late fifties (me) and his father, in his early eighties, it was a heck of an undertaking. It was an experience we will forever treasure.
This site is strictly “G-Rated” and family oriented.
Each month I’ll post a new picture from the member photo galleries.
