History lessons

altr-circle-the-ruins-better.JPGAn important part of this year’s Apache Land Trail Ride was the opportunity to see and learn about native cultures that are so closely linked to this area of western New Mexico (near Gallup and Fort Wingate). Although I wasn’t along for the ride when this photo was taken, I’m guessing ride manager Hugh Williams is offering an explanation about the ruins and who lived there. Each day took the riders in a slightly different direction and through a variety of terrain and scenery.

The Apache Land Trail Ride is one of four ApHC-sponsored rides held each year. Anyone who enjoys exploring wide open country and the chance to mingle with like-minded horse enthusiasts is advised to make plans for next year.
