About Us

Dedicated individuals

Ed and Sue Haefliger  are dedicated to helping horse and mule owners travel and pack safely into the back country.  We have worked for many years supporting state and federal trail workers as volunteer mule and horse packers in an effort to keep all trails open.

Over 25 years experience

We have been putting on workshops teaching stock users information we have learned. The varied subjects include packing, camping with your critters, saddle fitting, pack saddle adjusting, writing books and magazine articles on all of the above and more.  We have had the opportunity to teach and be of assistance in teaching these subjects to not just individuals but  also to different state and federal agencies personnel, including the US Army.

Books available on these subjects

We have written from the saddle the Packers Guide Book and Trail Skills and More that are available on this site.
