Mr. Hilliard has graciously allowed us to camp and ride on his beautiful ranch for many years, has recently passed.  His daughter, also an equestrian is carrying on her father's tradition, of letting TETRA ride this beautiful property and use funds collected as a fundraiser. 

Few private property owners are so generous to assist nonprofits fund raise on private property. We are grateful to have access to this lovely property.

All funds raised benefit TETRA and are used to keep trails open. Please join us.  It is a relaxed place to camp and ride, overlooking a beautiful lake. 

The ranch is about 1500-1800 acres.  Trails are over old ranch roads that are clear and grassy as they go past pastures and woods. This is a working cattle ranch, so all riding is guided.
