Colorado Plateau - Capitol Reef Ride


What to Bring for Colorado Plateau - Capitol Reef Ride


The trip features tent camping at primitive sites and are supported by 4 WD vehicles.  The camp wagons allow us to furnish cooking, eating, and shower tents, chairs, a commode, as well as feed for our horses. Participants on the trail rides will be assisted with final packing during the pre-trip orientation, the evening prior to departure.

We recommend that you:
1) pack as light as possible,
2) pack practically and with a utilitarian eye, and
3) pack so you may layer clothing for warmth. 

Suggested Items to Bring  
- Wide brimmed hat with a string
- Heeled, smooth soled, riding boots
- Riding gloves    
- Long underwear, underwear and socks   
- Long sleeved shirts and pants          
- Sweater, medium and heavy weight jackets

- Beer and liquor 
- Personal articles:  towel, lip balm, moisturizing lotion, tooth brush and paste, soap like Ivory or Castile, band aids, mole skin, etc...
- Riding helmet (This is an optional item except for riders under l8 years of age. Stipulations of our insurance require that riders should be encouraged to wear helmets. The outfitter does provide helmets!)
- Chaps and swim wear (optional)
- Cash for staff/guide gratuities
- Stuff sacks or pillow cases (We recommend these for dirty laundry or pillow)

- Saddle and tack

Additional Expenses
Airfare, rental car, personal items and alcoholic beverages. You should note that trip prices have been discounted to reflect the added expense for car rental incurred in reaching Torrey. In the final analysis, the cost for this quality trip make it one of the best buys in the adventure travel market. Also, for those participants who appreciate a cold beer after an eventful day or relaxing around the campfire with a cocktail, enjoy, but bring spirits in unbreakable containers if possible.
