Llama Orientation Clinic

Before you embark on your rental adventure, we require completion of an online orientation course to learn the basics of packing with llamas. For $65 you'll receive 69 lessons and six hours of training content!

The course will cover how to:

  • Halter lead ropes (attach & detach)
  • Saddle and unmount llamas
  • Hang & load panniers
  • Use the tie out stakes and water buckets
  • Trailer loading & transport

You’ll also learn:

  • An introduction to the equipment
  • Grazing instructions/habits
  • Weight load distribution
  • General rules of the trail 

Our clinic utilizes the Wilderness Ridge Trail Llamas training orientation curriculum, with their approval. You can view the full outline for the llama orientation course here.

Then, when you arrive at our farm to pick up your rental llamas, we'll complete a short in-person course refresher. We’ll spend time getting you acclimated to the llamas & so you'll become familiar with their behavior. Our llamas are extremely well-trained before graduating to packing on the trails. They’re protective, intelligent, and excellent companions. 

If you have rented llamas from us in the past or have rented llamas from another credible pack llama business, you will not need to take the training course or pay the fee again.
