Bumble Bee Ranch was one of the original stage coach stops from the 1800’s. The ranch is a western working/recreational ranch located at the bottom of the Bradshaw Mountains, boasting over 74,000 acres of Sonoran Desert. The ranch provides outdoor recreational activities for any family or organized groups. The ranch will bring you back in time when cowboys, cattle, horses and stage coaches were our only means of survival and transportation in the old west. For more information visit their website

CT: Ozark Trail

September 23 2017 - Steelville, Missouri

The Ozark Trails 75/100 is a point to point 75/100 mile endurance ride, with the 75 being an elevator, that follows the historic Ozark Trail from Steelville, MO to Black, MO, through the Ozark mountains.

If you've never ridden on The Ozark Trail it is honestly what I think of when I daydream about endurance riding. Mostly single track and forest service two track, it is a technical trail that will challenge you in the vein of Tevis or Bighorn or Old Dominion...

Come join us for a challenge right here in the middle of the country! learn more form our website

W: Nevada Derby I & II

The NV Derby ride is alive and well, and will be held on 1st/2nd of April. Entries to be found on the website.

The ride will be at Washoe Valley and although the camp is the same as the old Washoe Valley ride, the trail is *not* the same.

Because the ride is early in the season, the NV Derby ride does not include the SOBs (I know - you're all disappointed), nor does it include the exciting romp at the end alongside waves crashing on the Washoe Lake beach.

Ride manager Beth Kauffmann promises the weather will be perfect riding temperature - 55°-60° with no wind (she's tight with the weather gods).

Although the trail has some erosion, your trail worker-bees are slaving away to put on a fabulous ride.

Don't forget, Saturday's 50 is also the first leg of the NASTR Triple Crown (NV Derby 50/NASTR 75/Virginia City 100). This is your chance to earn yourself an embroidered jacket and be the envy of your friends.

A reminder that today (Friday) is the last day to receive the "early entry" rate of $90 for the endurance rides - entries must be post-marked 3/24.

This is one of the best value rides around - very few endurance rides can be found for less than $100 nowadays. Yet you'll still have stellar vets, attentive ride management, fun volunteers, and excellently marked trail!

Come and join us on 1st-2nd April.
