In 1975, Patricia Kearney and Gary George founded Hondoo Rivers and Trails. Hondoo is headquartered in the midst of the canyonlands at Torrey, Utah near Capitol Reef National Park. Pat and Gary share a passion for the social and natural history of this extraordinary region and have imbued their trips with this knowledge and appreciation.

Sensitive to the fragile environment they visit, Pat and Gary have labored to be on the cutting edge of their trade. In implementing best practices management with low-impact camping techniques, small group size, well-maintained equipment and top notch horses, Hondoo leads where land managers and other outfitters have followed.

In addition to outfitting PBS’s “Time Team America” and sharing a segment of “Equitrekking,” Hondoo’s backcountry adventures have been featured in many prestigious publications including the New York Times, National Geographic Explorer, Sunset Magazine and Western Horseman. Observers have lauded their guide service for its educational value, and the experience and professionalism of their crews.
