Toner Ranch Outfitting, LLC

Trail rides, pack trips, hunts as well as horse boarding. You want it, we got it!

High country outfitting is almost as old as the hills themselves. From the first person’s curiosity to see what was over the next mountain, around the next bend in the river, and what is on the other side of the valley, to the hunters and gatherers of old, to cowboys gathering the cattle on the open range, to the those who just want to commune with nature itself, their has always been a calling to gain insight and understanding of Mother Nature.

All of our animals are non-releasable. Some are rescues from people who had them as pets and realized they do not make good pets. Some are rescues from the wild who were injured or orphaned. Others were born in captivity. We strive to keep them all content and healthy.
