Our next ride will be the fourth annual Chuck Wagon Dinner at Tanque Verde Ranch. If you would like to go on this ride, you need to hurry as we must have all reservations by Monday, November 2. You can sign up for the event at the front desk of the La Hacienda Club. The one-hour ride and buffet dinner is $95, a wagon ride with dinner is $55, and the dinner around the campfire only is $37.50. There is entertainment during dinner, and line dancing is available after dinner in the outdoor grove. So grab your boots and come out to enjoy the evening Western style!

The last ride for the fall season will be at Old Tucson Studios on Saturday morning, December 5. Our group will be allowed into the park before opening for a ride through portions of the Saguaro National Park. After the ride we are welcome to enjoy the park for the day at a discounted price. This is a great time to visit the park as they will be presenting “Christmas in 1880s Tucson” with a number of interesting presentations on what life was like for both cowboys and townspeople in those days and what traditions they enjoyed at that time to ring in the Christmas season. The ride is $35/person, plus tip. Either cash or credit card is accepted.

If you would like more information please see the SBR HOA club website for the SBR Horseback Riding Group or contact Don and Rebecca Williams at [email protected] If desired you can be added to the email list so that you get complete information about each ride with the opportunity to sign up. This is an informal group with no specific commitment to any particular ride or number of rides. If the date and time fit your schedule you are welcome to sign up and join in the fun.
