RIDE DETAILS
 
The Cowboy Capital MS Trail Ride and the National MS Society are pleased to welcome back our participants and generous sponsors.

This is a fund raiser for Multiple Sclerosis so we encourage our participants to try to raise additional donations for MS.  Click on Donation Sheet or Online Donations for manual or automated ways to raise donations.

The Cowboy Capital MS Trail Ride is a scenic ride on Tarleton State University's 1,200 acre Hunewell Ranch about four miles from Stephenville, Texas (5090 CR 182)  (see map below).  The ranch provides the perfect place for the trail ride with it's varied terrain and ample parking at the camp site for your vehicles and trailers.  We have local paramedics that join us for the ride each year to make sure everyone has a fun, safe ride.  
 
We were the first trail ride in the nation to be sanctioned by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as an official National Multiple Sclerosis fund raiser.
