About Hooves & Boots on the Frio

Trail Ride

Plan now to join us for our 1st annual Hooves & Boots on the Frio Trail Ride, Dinner & Barn Dance on Saturday, November 9th, 2019 at Big Springs Ranch for Children, near Leakey, TX.

The Trail Ride is open to a small group of 25 intermediate and advanced riders and covers 11.5 miles of our 7,000 acre Big Springs Ranch for Children near Leakey, TX. Riders must supply their own horses and tack and be prepared for a challenging course with potential obstacles involving wildlife, vegetation, water, and bridge crossings.

The ride will be led by ranch manager Michael Priour accompanied by 4 wranglers who are familiar with the trail and terrain. Enjoy the fall colors and cooler weather on one of the most beautiful ranches in the Texas Hill Country and learn about this historic ranch, now home to abandoned and orphaned foster children who thrive in this peaceful and healing environment.

This ride for a cause supports the children's program at Big Springs Ranch. The cost for the Trail Ride, including the Dinner and Barn Dance is $500 per person, or $900 per couple.
