Your Perfect Adventure Awaits!

Your Outfitter

As an Augusta County native, I have obtained a vast amount of knowledge and lore of the surrounding, nature, wildlife, and history of the trails, which I will share with you. Yep, I’m going to be with you on the rides. We at North Mountain Outfitter keep the groups small so everyone can down right get to know each other.

Saddle Up and drift into yesteryear. Truly the best western experience is out West, but having been there many times, I will personally see that your experience with North Mountain Outfitter is as close and memorable to that way of life as possible.

I hope you enjoy your stay.

Your Outfitter,
Dwight Wood


Plan Your Trip Today!

We are a family-owned and operated ranch, located in beautiful Augusta County. Your journey will take you on a variety of mountain trails to include the region’s highest points, Reddish and Elliot Knobs. Operating under special use permit in the George Washington National Forest, let North Mountain Outfitter, the exclusive horse trail riding outfitter of this region, show you this mountainous setting full of beautiful ridges, streams, and valleys. With nature at her best and wildlife abundant, one can only imagine what’s around the next bend or just down the trail.

Experience is not necessary, but having a positive attitude, the love for animals, average physical fitness, and the ability to simply relax, will make your ride rewarding and unforgettable. All riders will be given a period of safety and riding instruction, but must demonstrate the ability to control the horse as well as the physical ability to ride.

We ride year-round and also offer horse-riding vacations with extended stays. North Mountain Outfitter is the perfect place to have your next family reunion, intimate getaway, special event, or corporate retreat.

Another FANTASTIC ride with Cowboy Dwight on Blue and me on Casper. Laura, a friend of Dwight’s joined us for a trip through the North George Washington Jefferson National Park, beautiful country, water for horses to cool off in, and as they splashed, cooled us off. Dwight has the most gentle, most cared for, and loved horses. And Dwight ALWAYS makes your trip one for the memory! I will return in October with another horse lover🐎🐴💗 to ride again!
