Horse & Mule Wrangler Wanted!

Bliss Creek Outfitters in Cody, Wyoming is looking for a horse & mule wrangler for the 2015 season.

The Job is available starting September 1 and will run until November.


Applicant must have shoeing and horsemanship experience. Packing experience is a plus. We are willing to train the right person to pack horses and mules. We operate a full-time outfitting business in Wyoming. This includes a guide & packer school, summer pack trips and fall hunting trips. Most of the season  is spent in our back country camp. A wrangler is responsible for the well being, whereabouts and shoeing of the horses and mules. Some odd jobs may be required such as hauling hay, fixing tack, etc. These are not everyday chores but can be expected at times.

Our base camp is located 22 miles into the wilderness. I takes 8 hours on horseback to cover the distance from our trailhead to camp. Once in camp, the wrangler saddles riding horses, checks stock daily for injuries and lost or loose shoes.

Shoes must be replaced right away. All employees shoe, however the wrangler will be the main person to replace shoes and it is his job to make sure all animals have shoes and are in good condition. All animals are shod regularly and behave well.

The wrangler also performs some camp chores, helps to cut firewood, haul water to the kitchen tent, grain livestock and help the guides pack the horses and mules.

This is a great opportunity for someone to work in the outdoors around horses and mules and gain shoeing experience.

Our crew is special to us. This job requires long days, especially in the saddle going to and from camp. We are looking for someone to work with us for many years to come. If you are interested, give us a call. Room and board is supplied.

We also have an archery elk guide position open.
