Welcome to the second year of the Prescott Chaparral Ride. The ride is being hosted by the L Bell Ranch in Skull Valley, Arizona. The dates for this year's ride will be April 21, 22, and 23. This year's ride is a pioneer ride, with 155 miles in endurance riding (50/55/50) and 85 miles in limited distance rides (30/30/25). Vet checks will be out of camp and lunch will be provided for riders. Lunches will be available for crew members at a small fee. Having vet checks out of camp will allow us access to a multitude of wonderful trails. Our goal is to provide safe, enjoyable trails with lots of water for the horses. We are making every effort to have as little repeat trails as possible over the three days of riding.
For each day there will be only one vet check for both the 50's and limited distance riders and lunches will be provided at the vet checks. Dinner will be on your own.
Base camp is located at the L-Bell ranch. The ranch is located 4.5 miles west of Iron Springs Road on Ferguson Valley Road, in Skull Valley, Arizona. Skull Valley is located about 18 miles southwest of Prescott, Arizona. The ranch is family owned for several generations and currently managed by the owners Mark Finn and Leslie Cronquist. This private cattle ranch is a unique setting for our event. Please browse our website and make plans to join us to ride in the Prescott National Forest this April.
