Cabalgata Los Bandidos


Upcoming cabalgata San Miguel, BCN, hosted by Rita, long time Baja cowgirl of Rancho Los Bandidos. Rita has good stock and tack available for rent for those who want to join in the fun. The after ride fiesta features a genuine Baja feast!

I rode last weekend with 171 other riders from Ej Porvenir to El Zorra. It was a blast.

Great time with some long time friends. Weather was perfect for a ride in the hills above Todos Santos bay.

Becky and me at Rita's Rancho de los Bandidos

That looks like really good fun.
Does the Rancho hire out horses? Do they have guilded trips.
I can ride. But it's been many moons so I probably need a nice friendly mule.
A smart one that does all the work so I can look out the window.

Here is Ritas FB link: https://www.facebook.com/Rancho-Los-Bandidos-116138118421982...

If you don't do FB and you are moving to Mexico you will need to do FB. Most in Baja uses FB for much of their communication needs.

Rita rents horses out for short guided rides almost daily as she has the concession for the visiting cruise lines in Ensenada. Just horses, no mules.
But she has a very nice string of horses you will not have any problems looking out the windows.

When you are settled in Baja let us know and we can arrange for you to join a cabalgata. It is a great way to meet some real Baja characters.

Great fotos Don Jorge, thanks for posting!
Nice photo of Mike Duarte; I'm used to seeing him on a mule.
If you haven't been to Rancho Alamar, their cabalgata is May 5-6 (2018).
East of Laguna Hanson on the edge of the Sierra de Juarez escarpment. Always a good time!
And Rancho El Topo is hosting a cabalgata on May 26 - 27. Ride among pine trees and granite crags. Beautiful wilderness at 5,000' elevation. Check out photos on Facebook: Rancho El Topo Sierra de Juarez.
I may be going to the Rancho Alamar cabalgata and bringing several horses from El Topo. Certain to be at the El Topo event.

Guessing you meant not used to Mike on a mule? His wrangler from Chihuahua has been working with Barbi and she has really calmed down these last few months.. She almost stands in place to mount her. :)

Wish we could join the rides in May but headed north. Our calving season begins April 25 (sure) and runs through May. But we are planning on the September ride for El Grito at Alamar!!

Mike and I have talked of importing a Mammoth Jack stud. Just talk though so far. Hope some day to meet you Maderita on a cabalgata. They are a hoot!

You are welcome Gueribo. It was a very nice Baja experience. The countryside, weather, the cast of characters , stock, hostess, wranglers, everything was perfect.

Yup, I agree, not enough mules!
