  • No private campfires but please join the group campfire.
  • As guest of the Ranch please pick up your litter (bring container for butts if you smoke).
  • Ride behind the trail boss and in front of the 'drag' (he is actually a nice guy).
  • Ribbon your horse's tail if he's a kicker - make it so the ribbon can be seen from a distance.
  • Ride with courtesy and be aware of others.
  • Ride your horse at a walk pace when on an organized ride with the group.
