Below are the tour dates for my 2017 summer. I will only be doing two trips open to the public in the summer of 2017. I will still be on the mountain in between these dates, hosting a group of students from Canada for a private 3 week adventure.
June 19-22, 2017. A lot of action between stallions and bands, clear beautiful skies and LONG days. The sun rises around 5:15 a.m. and doesn’t set until after 10 p.m.
July 15-18, 2017. Mid-July is a great time to be on the mountain. The wildflowers should be in full bloom, and the new foals will be running, playing and napping in them!
These trips will be 4 days/3 nights on the mountain top. This trip includes: transportation up and down the mountain, all food, snacks, tents, and expert personal guiding. (last night dinner is on your own once we return to Cody). Pick up at the Cody Airport can be arrange with for a small fee.
There are many great hotels in Cody, you will be responsible for making your own arrangements before and after the trip. AirBnb is also a great source to find some lodging. I can pick you up at your hotel the morning of our first day, or you can meet me at my house in Cody.

Wild in the Pryors is permitted by the Bureau of Land Management to conduct small group tours within the Pryor Mountain Wild Horse Range from January to December. Wild in the Pryors is one of a handful of businesses that have the federal permits necessary to guide clients onto this federal property.
Sandy has been camping in the Pryors Range for several years, spending weeks at a time with the horses.
Whether you bring a professional camera, or just a cell phone to take photos, Sandy goes out of her way to make sure you leave the mountain with cherished memories of your once in a life-time camping trip.
The stories she and her assistant share about the horses and the range, make this trip more than just a chance to view them, she makes this a trip more about knowing the horses, giving you a brief glance into the life of the Pryor Mountain Wild Horses.
Experience living with the horses 24 hours a day and in doing so, this can give you a better understanding of what it is like to live wild on the range!
All tours may include light to moderate hiking.
A Review from a few of my guests from last year:
I spent three nights on the mountain with Sandy and her assistant Abby Branchflower in early July 2016. The entire trip was well planned and organized. The food was excellent, starting with morning coffee with the horses. Tent accommodations were also excellent – we had some serious mountain weather and my tent didn’t leak! Most impressive was Sandy and Abby’s extraordinary depth of knowledge of the Pryor Mustangs as well as their passion for their preservation.
I highly recommend this experience for anyone wishing an “up close and personal” experience with this spectacular country and its Mustang inhabitants.
