Introductory Ride Both Days!

Introducing a fun, no frills, endurance ride at Wood Guest Ranch.
Experience the ideal weekend outing. The SE Oklahoma area, where Wood Guest Ranch is located, normally experiences mild weather in the spring, and Wood Guest Ranch provides easy trails to ride. The access roads to Wood Guest Ranch camp are paved except for the last ¼ mile, making getting to the camp easy. The campground is horse-friendly with pens, wash-racks, RV hookups, showers and laundry facilities. Dogs on leash are welcomed. Remember, for ecological maintenance concerns: Pack it in, Pack it out.

All breeds and genders of equines are welcome and encouraged. Equines must be at least 48 months of age to enter the limited distance ride and at least 60 months of age to enter the endurance ride. The trail is nicely mowed, fairly flat but does have areas with rocks. Shoes or other hoof protection is recommended. All veterinarian (vet) checks are in camp. There is water in camp so there is no need for you to haul water to the vet examination area.

Start: Each day, the 50-mile ride will start at 6:00 AM, and the 30-mile ride will start at 6:30 AM. The Introductory ride will start at 7:00 AM
