Spotted Horse Ranch

Looking for Team Members to join us ASAP and Experience the Wild West in the Shadows of the Grand Tetons!

The Spotted Horse Ranch, located in Jackson Hole Wyoming, is an Orvis-endorsed guest ranch situated on the banks of the beautiful Hoback River. We are known for our excellent fly fishing, horseback riding, cookouts by the river, and our back-country trips. We also offer guided hunts and fishing trips. We host up to 34 guests and we strive to create a FUN "Old West" dude ranch experience!

The ranch is located about 16 miles south of the town of Jackson. Grand Teton National Park is about 25 minutes away, and the south entrance to Yellowstone National Park is appx. an hour away. Our ranch property lies adjacent to the Bridger Teton National Forest and we have the rights to use this forestland for hiking, horseback riding, and hunting.

We also have a large yard with a pavillion that is perfect for volleyball, ping pong, and other fun activities for adults and children alike!
