Come join us for a four day weekend in September 2015
The date for this year's ride is September 24-27, 2015 (the last full weekend of September).
Come and partake in the beauty of Arizona, in such a way that can not be experienced from the road, but only from horseback. Saddle up and join us as we unlock the beauty that remains hidden from the surface streets and cities. You will ride over hills, through valleys, down ravines, through washes, and up draws. And when you stop to water your horse at a stock tank that cattle and working cowboys only once knew about, take a moment to notice the calmness and peacefulness that surrounds you. Its that tranquility, some say, that is worth it's weight in gold. So, join in the camaraderie with your fellow riders and share in the experience that we call The Mesquite Trail Ride.
Each day, join us for our planned trail rides or ride out in your own group (just don't get lost).
Back at camp, each evening, sit down and feast on a delicious dinner prepared by our caterers. And afterward, since there are no dishes to do, kick up your heels for a "boot stomp'pen", good time. Come'on down and listen to our music entertainment and dance the night away. Plus, you don't want to miss out on being around the campfire and joining in on the jokes, story telling, and laughter. No matter what, its a great way to end a day of horseback riding.
Also, lets not forget our famous Mesquite Trail Ride Equine Hat Modeling and Gymkhana competitions. The competition is held on Saturday and is a must see event. The hat competition really stepped up a notch last year so I can't wait to see the competition this year. And for those of you that did not witness the competition last year, people dressed their horses in more than just a hat. It was a lot of fun.
And of course,there is Mesquite Trail Ride's very own way to test ones horsemanship and silliness all at once, our famous gymkhana. These are not your "normal" gymkhana events that you may be used to or have even heard of. However, they are a lot of fun. Whether you participate in these events or participate in cheering, you will not want to miss Saturday's competition, I promise you.
Great riding, catered dinners, live music, and you provide the dancing, laughter and fun. It just doesn't get better than that!
Water for the horses will be provided (beer is up to you)
And in closing, we would like to mention that on the behalf of the ranch owner, Mesquite TrailRide, LLC. makes a charitable contribution, from funds raised during the ride, to a local children's orginization of the rancher's choice. Here at Mesquite TrailRide, we believe that every child can benefit from a helping hand, no matter how big or small that hand may be.
