Welcome Trail Ride Participants!!
We hope all is well for you and your family during this unusual time. Currently plans for this years' Trail Ride are under way.
This years’ route will have just a few changes with us kicking off at the Copeland Ranch on Knight Canyon Road.
with a “round robin” style ride.
Please watch for updates on the website; on Facebook; or your private email prior to the ride and as cell service permits.
We want to respect our ranchers wishes so please do not arrive at the ranch until after 12 noon on xxxxxxx.
One of the many suggestions we received last year was to bring back the auction. We listened and the auction will be held on xxxxxx afternoon with a brisket dinner and all the trimmings to follow. It’s a lot of fun. If you have a nice item you would like to donate just let us know at registration.
In response to your suggestion, rig move will be each afternoon following the ride unless announced otherwise. Announcements will be at the evening meal, however we have added a communication board to the chuckwagon.
Breakfast and lunch will be on your own, with dinner being a catered meal. Coffee and snacks will be available each morning at the chuckwagon.
As suggested, we will have more scouts available to ride front, middle, and rear to help you enjoy a safe ride. Timely "comfort" morning and lunch breaks are expected as well as scheduled animal water stops.
We try to make our ride as authentic with as much cross-country riding as possible. We know our ride is different from most in that we are trying to do it the way our ancestors did. It’s not for all folks, but as long as these great ranches let us, we will continue to ride the trails. We look forward to seeing each of you. Hope to see you in xxxxx.
May God be with you and keep you safe during your travels.
Until then, Happy Trails!
