THE LATEST FROM ROB PHILLIPS
Organizer ~ Great Santa Fe Trail Horse Ride
Word has come from Rob Phillips that they
are anticipating and preparing for the next
Great Santa Fe Trail Horse Ride.
There will be a limit of 60 riders.
All entrants must agree to place the care
and condition of their horses above the win.
Emphasis is made that this is not a race to the finish line,
but a safe and enjoyable ride through history.
Any riders pushing their horses in an unsafe or
aggressive manner will be pulled from the ride.
Each rider who completes the course and whose
mount is judged fit to continue will be awarded the
Great Santa Fe Trail Horse Ride buckle along with
the bragging rights of completing the historic trail.
The Great Santa Fe Trail Horse Race Endurance Ride,
sometimes referred to as the Santa Fe Ride,
is an annual event.
It is a 515 mile equine endurance ride conducted
over a fourteen day period and in
close proximity to the historic Santa Fe Trail.
The 2008 Ride will take place
August 31-September 13, 2008.
The ride will begin in Wagon Mound, New Mexico
and end in Council Grove, Kansas.
Both the start and the end are very historic sites
on the Santa Fe Trail.
Further news will be made available as plans progress.
