Our White Mountain Wilderness trip is scheduled for June 22, 2015. Pleae call or email Sue for questions about course or trip content and information.
If you are a Rough Rider from a previous season (attended trip) you may be able to waive the prep classes.
The Red Horse Ranch Rough Riders’ Club provides adventurous horse lovers with the unique opportunity to explore local camping/trail venues and to explore the mountains of New Mexico with other folks who enjoy riding and camping.
The Rough Riders' Club has been featured in Trail Blazer Magazine and many regional publications. It is a one of a kind club for this area. Our deep love of nature, horses and the great outdoors, especially the mountains has led us to provide mentoring for others who wish to ride freely in God's country.
We welcome you and your equine partners!

The courses are designed to create an independent rider and camper. The Rough Riders Club does not act as a guide or guardian during trips. The Club is a connection point for riders with a mutual interest. Your registration in the Rough Riders Club, the Club's Preparedness Program courses or individual trips indicates that you are assuming all responsibility for your rig, horse, gear, accompanying minors and yourself. You will be responsible for all health care during the trip.
All riders must be independent and fully capable of controlling their horses for safety of the group. Trips require mounting on the trail and navigating steep mountain trails.
*No Children under 10 years of age. RR Club reserves the right to refuse to take unmprepared riders.
