We'll ride in the morning, pack a sandwich to eat on the trail, there will be opportunities for swimming horses for those who would enjoy that while we are out.  Many areas of the trails are completely shaded.  Campfire meal early evening.

Everyone is welcome to camp the night before and/or after (Friday and/or Saturday nights).  We would like to encourage everyone to stay Saturday night if you can for socializing!  Generators are welcome if you have AC in your trailer.  Baron Fork Ridge has primitive horse camping, water at camp, stalls for horses, lots of room for portable corrals and permanent high lines are also available.  Cowboy showers and compost toilets outhouse are also available at camp.  If you don't have AC / generator in your trailer but would like to stay the night, we can accommodate you in the house slumber party fashion.

This is a Dutch event, bring all the food you want to eat, we'll cook together on the grill, fire pit, stove. (rumor has it, we may have a cowboy cook ... bring what you need for your horse. There will be no cost, this is a get-away. We'll be doing photos, do some brainstorming to fire us up creatively, and just enjoy getting to know each other in a relaxed setting.  This is a weekend to indulge ourselves in being creative horsewomen! 

 Baron Fork Ridge has 6 box stalls, reserve with your commitment to attend (please do not reserve stalls without a firm commitment).  Hot rope corrals also available, high lines at camp, or bring your corral panels.  Please bring your own feed, buckets.  To reserve corrals please contact

Our April ride consisted of riders from Kansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Arkansas.  We also had the top four point leaders in the nation for ACTHA at this ride, great honor!  Wonderful group of riders.  Pictured here is one of the groups who rode together during Sunday's ride of the two day event.  Great weekend!
