Forty years of trails, Los Vaqueros de Farmarcia traveled over 80 miles on horseback through the beautiful high mesa country of central Arizona in late March. With record temperatures in the 80s, the desert was alive with spring, with
the wildflowers blanketed the desert floor and water flowed in creeks and draws throughout the canyons. In 1976, my father Jeb Rosebrook helped start the ride with ten other riders with deep roots at the Orme School, a dream he had since he was a boy, of a pack trip from the Quarter Circle V Bar Ranch to Phoenix. Four decades later the Ride continues with riders attending from all over the country, and even as far as Berlin and Dubai in recent years.
