High Uinta Pack Goats has been providing the public with pack goat rental services and training programs since 1994. Our business originally started out as a hobby to provide a family member with debilitating joint problems a means of enjoying the hiking and camping activities she loved. Eventually, our little pastime turned into a thriving business that is leading the trend in the use of goats as hiking and backpacking companions.
When trained properly, goats are easy to manage, loyal, hardworking, and capable of carrying up to a fourth of their weight. We educate people on how to handle their rented pack goats, as well as how to raise their own goats for hiking and backpacking. We offer free training classes: 3 hours (minimum for renting) or up to 2 days (to learn for owning).
Using goats as pack animals continues to increase in popularity as people discover the benefits of these accommodating, environmentally friendly, and affordable animals. Senior citizens, injured vets, persons with disabilities, and young children unable to carry packs and equipment can confidently enjoy the great outdoors with a goat on hand to carry their gear.
Please feel free to contact us for more information on renting or training pack goats for camping, hiking, backpacking, and hunting. We’re passionate about sharing this invaluable service with you!
