If you love horseback riding, Fort Bragg is the place to be on the weekend of August 24-25, where you can compete in the 43rd Annual Ride & Tie World Championship, or enjoy the “Mendocino Magic” endurance ride along the spectacular coast and through the redwoods.
Ride & Tie: August 24
The 2013 Ride & Tie World Championship takes place August 24 over a 35-mile course that is both rugged and spectacular, positioned between the Pacific Ocean and the Redwood forest.
The sport combines trail running, endurance riding, and strategy. The goal is for three team members (two humans and one horse) to complete a cross-country course by alternating riding and running.

Mendocino Magic Ride: August 24 & 25
Saddle up and choose the 30 or 50-mile endurance ride through some of the most breath-taking scenery anywhere. Bring the family and spend the weekend camping and having fun! The pond at the campground will be open for swimming, although there is NO LIFEGUARD, and you swim at your own risk. There is also a hiking trail to some beautiful old redwoods, for those who aren’t riding.
