LAZY F RANCH TRAIL RIDE TEXAS TRAIL RIDING AND CAMPING RULES Trail Riding for Trail Riders CAMPFIRES AND OUTDOOR BBQ
You are welcome to cook out and build a campfire.
Please use dead wood for campfires
and caution to prevent grass fires
Trash in - Trash out Please dig holes for human waste and paper
I support the 2nd Amendment
I don't care how you carry your weapons,
On your hip! Under your jacket!
If other riders object, conceal your weapon!
If they continue to object, you will stay and they will go!
However, I have a range for shooting your rifle or pistol!!
CELL PHONES - You, individually, or someone in your group
must have cell phone at all times and I need your number
Call and tell me where you decide to camp
I don't care where you camp as long as I can find you
if you get hurt ... or scared
At this time (1 June 2017), all MY fences have open gates.
If you find a fence and all gates are closed, do not open it -
it is a neighbors gate and pasture!!
If you find a closed gate and ride the fence
and find an open gate, it is my gate and you can go through.
IN THE FUTURE, I am going to mark MY gates
with green or blue paint, tape or signs.
I am going to mark the neighbors' gates
with red and/or white paint, signs or tape.
DO NOT CHASE MY CATTLE!!!
