Horsepacking Shoot in Wyoming’s Wind River Range

NOLS20190904-0513

What’s better than backpacking across Wyoming’s Wind River Range? How about packing across it with you and all your gear on horseback. Whether you’re a life-long horse person or equine novice, an extended expedition with your steed is a daunting proposition. The National Outdoor Leadership School, based in Lander, WY, offers field programs that continue the tradition of horsemanship in the mountains. We were contracted by NOLS this summer to produce imagery from their horsepacking programs. Beginning at the NOLS Three Peaks Ranch in Boulder, WY, students learn the basics of working with horses. This eventually leads to multi-week adventure in the near-by Wind River Range dominating the horizon. We spent time in both locations to cover different aspects of their programs. It’s truly an inspiring part of the country to work.
