Picture yourself here!

altr-scenery.JPGThis year’s Apache Land Trail Ride, the 25th, was staged in Western New Mexico near Gallup. Forests and meadows in the Zuni Mountains on the Cibola National Forest provided a scenic backdrop. The area’s cultural history is rich and riders were able to visit important sites ranging from cliff dwellings to sweat lodges to sawmills.

The Apache Land ride is one of four ApHC-sponsored rides and usually attracts participants from all walks of life and all parts of the country. An Appaloosa horse is not required, but having one reduces the risk of overnight spot applications by your “trail pals.” It’s obvious that lifelong friendships have been formed on this and other ApHC rides. If you’ve never been with us for a trail ride, give it some serious consideration. The enjoyment and stress-reduction benefits are worth more than a country club membership or bus tour.

A special thanks to JOANNA BRYANT for letting us use her photos. Although I managed to snap a few, most of what we’ve used here belong to Joanna.
