The Big Ride
Our annual cross-state ride is now held the last full week in February of each year. The dates for 2008 are February 23rd to February 29th. Registration begins Saturday, February 22, 2008. In December 2007 ride packets will be mailed to current members (2007) and members of record for the year 2006.
The ride begins at a site just East of Bradenton, Florida, and ends in Ft. Pierce, Florida, a total of approximately 120 miles. Each day’s ride is approximately 15 to 20 miles in length. The purpose of the ride is to draw attention to Florida’s horse and cattle heritage. The ride travels a highway right-of-way and requires that we be at designated points along the way at certain times of the day. Riders and their horses should be conditioned for these requirements.
