2nd Annual Trail Ride - San Carlos

MAINTAINING TRADITIONS: 2nd Annual Trail Ride
By Lynn Prince

San Carlos, Sonora Mexico - In the spirit of maintaining the horseback riding traditions of Mexico, Asociacion Ganadera de Guaymas sponsored its 2nd annual 8-hour trail ride on February 13. This is a smaller version of the Governor of Sonora’s traditional ride where nearly 4,000 horseback riders participate each year.

Approximately 300 riders participated this year and the ride began at a ranch past Paradiso Resort. Breakfast was set up for the riders near Los Posada’s Condominiums. The ride then proceeded through a creek by Marina Seca, past El Babiso ranch, Nacapuli Canyon, through El Potrero Canyon then to Guayacam Ranch for machaca for lunch. The day ended near the corrals at the Guaymas Ranchers Association for a evening of Fiesta. A barbeque and beer rounded dinner out as dancers, dancing horses and live music supplied the entertainment.
