The adventure begins at 11:30am at the C9R stables. Cowboys and Cowgirls will be introduced to their faithful mount and the ride will begin through some of the most spectacular parts of the Ozarks. At around 5pm the group will return to the Ranch Stables where you will be able to pitch your tent. All weather tents will make your stay enjoyable no matter what Mother Nature decides to bring. The range cooks will prepare a Cowboy Cookout for the trail ride participants. The evening will include campfire stories, and perhaps a cowboy song or two. You are welcome to bring your singing voice and a guitar if you like. On Sunday morning you will start your day off with coffee (of course) and a Cowboy Breakfast that is to die for. After that it is back into the saddle for another four hour morning ride. This could be the best experience of your lifeâ€Ś..and certainly one you will never forget! The Registration Form provides 2 options. Please complete and return as soon as possible to the Ranch Office.

Someone once said—
‖There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and selfish people who create it. You surround yourself with people that are always there for you and make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy.
Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.‖
