Ranch News:

RIDING FOR SAFETY:  Trailblazer continues to be represented on the Mouted Monitors team, keeping the Valley safe.

KEEPING THE VALLEY SAFE AND TRAILS OPEN: Trailblazer is opposed to the proposed sand mine in El Monte Valley.  While sand is an important commodity, other sources, in locations with less impacts to existing wildlife, agriculture, and recreational users, should be explored. 

Trailblazer supports the efforts of El Capitan Firesafe Council to keep the Valley safe.

Trailblazer's first annual TRAILBLAZER CUP INVITATIONAL was a great success, with international audience speaking languages of Lithuania and Thailand.  Mitch's horse won the coveted Grand Prize Cup for most improved (water is sooo scarey), and Jenna showed tremendous flag and manuever skills.  Thanks to all who came and played.
