32nd Annual Spring Ride! Ridge to Bridge

Join us for the 32nd annual
SPRING RIDE!  
Marin Horse Council will be supporting the Bay Area Ridge Trail's
"Ridge to Bridge" Ride!

the t-shirt you get

the t-shirt you get

Riders will start at Presidio Riding Club's Staging area at Rodeo Valley Stables and ride an easy ride to a gourmet lunch at Tennessee Valley Trailhead, then make the short ride home. Horses in good condition may want to add Coastal Trail and pick up a second dessert from the dessert bar before heading up Old Springs Trail to go home.  Riders will also ride in from Muir Beach Stables (Ocean Riders) and from Miwok Stables at Tennessee Valley. Please do not park your rig at Tennessee Valley on this busy day. Rodeo Valley Stables (Presidio Riding Club) has lots of space for parking your rig and trailer.  That is where the ride begins. See map below. 

The lunch will really impress you. Creative, Delicious! All proceeds go to the Bay Area Ridge Trail. Cost for horses is less because we do not need a bus to transport us over the bridge. Hikers will start in the Presidio in San Francisco and will hike in over the Golden Gate Bridge. You also get a cool t-shirt with this ride. Last year's t-shirt was cool!  Riders will ride in small groups not one large group. Barbara Weitz will be smiling down proud on us! Invite your friends. We want the greater Bay Area riders to attend this beloved signature ride.
