MT: Moab - Last Year!
This is the last year of the MOAB ENDURANCE RIDE, October 24-26, 2013. SO, don’t miss out on this beautiful place!
Moab is only a week away. The Government shut down has not touched us and we are READY TO RIDE !!!
We are flagging trails as you read this. Takes us over a week. 6 colors of ribbon, 10 people, 6 horses, 4 jeeps, 2 ATVs, are busy on the trails. The conditions are fantastic.
Incredible Canyon Scenery
NEW TRAILS EVERYDAY!!! This is Big Canyon Country and we take you there. One big scenic loop everyday. No backtracking or repeat trails. Begin each day’s ride surrounded with incredible rock formations. Ride into canyons with dramatic canyon walls towering overhead. Gradually climb out of the canyons and trot along the canyon ridge with incredible views of the wind sculpted crevasses below. Lots of variety of scenery and trails. Open canyon country.
This was John Wayne Country. Many of his films (and lots more) were made right here in the Moab Canyons. There will be a little film history at camp.
Sandstone and sand (not deep) trails. A few short sections of rocks (true story). The trails vary. Two track good footing sand, then some Outlaw Trail style sandstone. Horses should be shod or booted. Experienced barefoot horses will do fine (bring boots esp for multi-days). We support barefoot horses and we assist with trail descriptions regarding terrain. Rocks are minimal.
