Event Details

Annual Desert Caballeros Horse Ride

The folks who live in Wickenburg are proud that the town is widely known as "the West's Most Western Town." One of the events that Wickenburg is famous for is the annual Desert Caballeros Ride.

A caballero (pronounced "cab-ee-air-owe") is a cowboy. The Desert Caballeros is a group of about 240 men from all over the country, Canada, and overseas, who gather annually for this ride. The first ride was in 1947, the year that the old Wickenburg Rodeo closed down. The riders have gathered annually since then for this 100-mile round-trip ride into the Weaver and Bradshaw mountains northeast of Wickenburg.
