NOTICE: We've come up with a solution for our lost trails and we think the new trails are better than ever!
2011 Trail changes:
Sometimes when life dishes out lemons and you make lemonade, you find that the lemonade is better than you thought! We've added a brand new trail and modified two others for your riding enjoyment on Day 2 (Spring Trail); you'll do three loops and come back to camp for your vet checks for that day. How easy is that for those without crews? We also use one of the modified trails to make it just a wee bit easier on your horse on Days 1 and 3 - you only have to climb up to that lookout once. Otherwise - it's the same beautiful base camp, same great trail scenery! Hope to see you at Ride the Divide!
2011 Ride & Tie : We are adding in a 35 mile Ride & Tie on El Caso Ranch day 3. Take this opportunity to learn how to do Ride & Tie. More info...
Lunches will be served to Riders at the vet checks. Dinner meals will NOT be served. Riders will be on their own for dinner.
