Las Caballeras offers two Catalina Ladies Ride options in 2024: a five-day shorter ride and a seven-day full ride to explore the wonders of Santa Catalina Island. (Ruth Sobeck photo)

Las Caballeras is a group of horsewomen who gather together every fall or spring for a multi-day vacation with their horses on beautiful Santa Catalina Island. Plans are under way for this year’s trip, and there will be two ride options: a short five-day ride Sept. 27-Oct 1, and the full seven-day ride Sept. 27–Oct. 3. Either one is a “bucket list” adventure on horseback. Some notes:
• Bring your horse or rent one from our professional wrangler
• Cowgirl campground is at beautiful Little Harbor
• Horses/camping gear are barged to the Island
• Enjoy small group rides in a unique, protected ecosystem

It is a thrill to experience the unforgettable views of the ocean and of Catalina Island, and the camaraderie and experience will make memories for a lifetime. A veterinarian and experienced wranglers will attend to the horses during the ride, which features delicious, catered food, shower trailers and masseuses, and entertainment including campfire music. If you would like to learn more about this fun 21-and-over event, see the Las Caballeros ad on page 14, or vidit www.lascaballeras.com. The email address is: lascaballeras@gmail.com.
