Come join us for a four day weekend in September 2013
The date for this year's ride is September 26-29, 2013 (the last full weekend of September).
We will be riding in Sonoita, Arizona, on the beautiful Diamond C Ranch, which is know for it's tranquility and breath taking views. Come and enjoy the beauty this ranch has to offer. Each day, join us for our planned trail rides or ride out in your own group (just don't get lost). Come see what this ranch has to offer, and fully experience it the way it should be experienced, on horseback.
at camp, each evening, sit down and feast on a delicious dinner
prepared by our caterers. And afterward, since there are no dishes to
up your heels for a "boot stomp'pen", good time. Come'on down and listen
to our live 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)
