TRAIL RIDING/PACKING/TRAINING CLINIC

I must thank-you and commend you and your outfitting operation. It was your expert knowledge and teaching skills in the fine art of packing a horse that made our first day go off without a hitch. I must also commend you on he way you treat and keep your fine animals. Before I used your horses, I had been around horses enough to see some pretty common problems arise when trying to pack and trail horses in the mountains. The first night after we had our tent set up, horses tended to, we reflected on the 22 miles we had come that day, and we couldn't think of one problem or even an uncomfortable moment. Having top quality horses and tack, sure made our trip a very memorable event. Daryn Bonderchuck

Stan, I wanted to say thank-you on behalf of my brother and I for what I'm sure will be the most memorable hunt of my life. The country that we were in was rich with game but also a bit rugged. The horses that you provided were top notch for this type of adventure, well trained and calm in all situations. We were on a trip in the Yukon a few years back and the horses they bad were nowhere near the quality that you provide. Shawn Hillstead

It's been a year since I took your outfitting course. I have found it to be a brilliant foundation to my learning curve of back country horsemanship. Back in 2003 I told myself! was getting a job working in this field. This year I managed to get a job as a wrangler at the Top of the World Guest Ranch. It, by far has been my best job ever.

Just a short note to let you know how much I enjoyed your course on wilderness travel. My increased understanding of horses and packing is a testament to your ability to transfer knowledge. The horses were well behaved and the equipment and tack in excellent condition. The friendly atmosphere and camaraderie of new friends was icing on the cake. Peter Alan

I would like to express my appreciation for the extraordinary experiences and training I received when I attended your packing and outfitting in July, 2002. The course was very well organized. I learned many new principles that I would not have otherwise learned anywhere else. These new training methods have assisted me in training the two foals I presently own. Erin Gunoff

I took the Horse Training, Packing, and Wilderness Travel Program, with Blue Creek Outfitting so that I would have some experience with horses before leaving for the summer to work in a guiding territory. It was a major help and a great learning experience. The horses that we worked with at the camp were quiet and friendly and easy to learn on. The camp was comfortable. Chad Miller

My Blue Creek Outfitter trip was one of the most memorable times of my life. Using good horses allowed us to get into an area where I walked on top of the world. Every day from my desk I reminisce about the inspiring look down from a mountain top onto the beauty of the valley floors and pristine rivers. Keith Erickson

Mary and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful time we had when we went on the pack trip last summer. You and your family were wonderful hosts and really went out of your way to make sure we had a good time. We were especially impressed with how well trained and calm the horses were that we had for a week. The horses were always very co-operative and willing. That pack trip was the best experience we ever had on a vacation. Mary and I also want to let you know that we want to come back in August of 2002 and go on another trip. Chuck & Mary Lieber

I came to your Horse Packing course a total novice. A week at "horse camp" not only provided an excellent foundation for working with horses but, most importantly, gave me confidence. Classroom theory was well balanced with lots of opportunities to practice, good equipment and gentle horses made it easy. It was a great adventure! Sue Demaine

We have nothing but deep admiration and praise for the high standard of horse and equipment provided. We were amazed at what the horses were capable of climbing steep alpine, wallowing through muskeg, wading up rapids, and crossing tangled avalanche chutes. We were sure glad we weren't the ones walking. Also amazing us was the fact that we didn't have a single misfortune with horses or equipment even though it was our first packing trip ever.

I was a little nervous to attend as I am afraid of horses, but I have to say that all of the horses were very well mannered and made it easy for me to get over that fear. Stan�s knowledge and professionalism shone through in all of his instructions and made it such an amazing experience. I brought my five year old son with me and he still tells stories about his week there. The scenery is amazing and it was so great to connect with the earth and wilderness again. I would highly recommend the camp to anyone who wants to become a guide, better horse rider, or even for just a peaceful mountain getaway.Kristan Willis

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the experience and your knowledge. I was only home a short time, a few hours, and back on my horse looking for new trails and more challenges. My sons and I shared a very special closeness there and now they understand better when we talk about horses. Expanded their adventures. Thank you very muchNatalie Brown

I just want to thank you for giving me the outdoor experienced of my life. I never imagined I would see and do so much. Thanks for everything.Daniel Lloyd

I have had a lot of feedback from my staff in regards to the peacefulness of the setting, and how it enabled them to relax and de-stress. The atmosphere at Blue Creek was welcoming dand the accommodations refreshingly simple and comfortable. The hands on knowledge about horses and wilderness travel and packing provided self esteem for most of us. Thank you Stan for so much fun! Kelly Dunn
