Wyatt Earp's Vendetta Ride 



Our five-day historic Tombstone, Arizona horseback ride and tour will focus on Wyatt Earp’s Vendetta Ride of March/April 1882. This successful and ever-popular Old West horseback ride traces Wyatt Earp and his posses’ bloody trail of retribution against the Cow-boy faction just after Wyatt’s younger brother Morgan was back-shot to death while playing pool at Campbell and Hatch’s billiard parlor on Allen Street. We'll travel to the Chiricahua, Dragoon and Whetstone Mountains, through the high country surrounding Tombstone. We’ll ride to the controversial – and virtually unknown – site where Wyatt and his posse stumbled upon the Cow-boys, engaged in a deadly, gun-blazin’ spew of lead with the resultant death of Curly Bill Brocius… or did he actually die by Wyatt’s shotgun blast?  Our well-informed Tombstone historian will examine the locale’s questionable site based on descriptions given in Wyatt’s biography, and will discuss Curly Bill’s alleged demise.  We’ll also visit Johnny Ringo’s haunted grave-site… was it suicide or did Wyatt and Doc return for their final Vendetta coup-de-grace?   With the town of Tombstone serving as an excellent backdrop for such a historic ride, Great American Adventures (GAA) transports you back in time to locales few individuals have visited, especially as an organized group of riders. Includes well-trained horses (matched to your abilities), tack (you may bring your own saddle), food (three meals a day), wranglers (they do all the work), and historians (they'll separate Hollywood myth from historic fact).  Non-riding spouses / significant others encouraged to attend... we'll keep them busy too! http://great-american-adventures.com/horseback-riding-adventures/wyatt-earps-vendetta-ride-tombstone-arizona-territory/
