It's a great way to connect with nature the way John Muir and Teddy Roosevelt did, from the high saddle of a trusty Sierra steed.
Some of the guides are in their third generation of packing these trails from the same location. They know these woods! But lets let owners Larry and Nishma Knapp tell you about their rides themselves:
