Snap button up shirts with long sleeves must be worn every day at the corrals for health and safety purposes. Regular button up shirts do not work because when tucked into the jeans there is the risk of them get stuck on the saddle horn. These snap shirts will be worn tucked into western style blue jeans with a belt as seen in the photos.
While we are guiding horseback rides here in Wyoming we must wear western style cowboy boots. Examples pictured to the left. We wear these boots not only for our safety while working with the horses but also to play our part in accurately portraying the part of the traditional Wyoming cowboy/cowgirl during our guided tours.
With this, wranglers must wear a professional looking cowboy/cowgirl hat at all times while working in the corral. This provides protection from the sun as well as a professional look for our guides. We do not allow straw hats. Examples of acceptable hats and unacceptable hats shown on the left.
Grand Teton Lodge Company does require wranglers to wear a helmet anytime you are riding. Helmets will be provided for you but you are more than welcome to bring your own.
Wranglers must bring a pocket knife for safety on the trail as well as a necessity when cutting bailing twine.
Recommended to bring:
Warm outerwear work jacket such as a Carhart, Timberland Pro, etc.
Rain jacket and/or slicker
Warm beanie or headband to wear under cowboy/cowgirl hats
Work gloves and/or riding gloves
Bandana and/or neck buff
Personal western saddle
Long johns/warm undergarments
