Legends of the American Quarter Horse Trail Ride
September 12th - 15th

Join Us

We would like to extend a special invitation to join us for the 2013 Legends of the American Quarter Horse Trail Ride. Help us celebrate the legends on two great West Texas ranches, both recipients of the Best Remuda Award. The American Quarter Horse was born and bred in areas like the Matador Ranch and the Tongue River Ranch.

As a friend of the Foundation, you have the opportunity to ride with us on two genuine working cattle ranches and support the Foundation’s programs. You will join the ranch cowboys as they cross the rolling plains and rocky canyons of these ranches, while learning about a western way of life that is fiercely preserved and championed today.


$3,750 per person or $7,500 per couple includes:

  • Three nights accommodations in the rustic elegance of your host ranch
  • All meals/beverages and entertainment
  • Legends Trail Ride
  • Transfers between ranches

Limited spaces are available for this exclusive ride hosted by the Matador and Tongue River Ranches.

This ride is for the experienced rider. We will be riding in ranch country, and the terrain is likely to be somewhat rough in places. Optional activities for non-riders, including sporting clays and private dove hunts, are available through the Matador Ranch for an additional fee.

To reserve your spot, please contact Chris Sitz (806) 378-5032 or
