Wildways: Ride The Ranch

Take a horseback ride on the 5,000-acre Rickert Brothers Ranch near Bella Vista, a property that is protected by the Shasta Land Trust. Your ride on the ranch will be led by cowboy Ken Hartman. The Ranch includes upwards of 600 acres of vernal pools, three major creeks including Little Cow Creek, and sprawling expanses of blue oak woodlands. You and your horse will be crossing creeks on this trip. BYOH – bring your own horse and riding gear. Lunch included. Shasta Land Trust’s Wildways series of fundraising events is a fun and unique way for people to contribute to the preservation of significant lands in far northern California. Connecting people and places, the Wildways events feature some of the most interesting and fun outings in the North State! Hosted by volunteers, all proceeds from ticket sales support Shasta Land Trust’s mission to conserve local land.
