The 2nd Annual Sport and Trail Games are presented by Sport and Trail Magazine, in partnership with DP Saddlery, Inc., and hosted by the Von Holten Ranch in Mora, Missouri. The mission of the Sport and Trail Games, besides offering horsemen and women a wonderfully enjoyable event, is to provide riders with the opportunity to try out and experience a variety of equine associations. Whether you have never ridden with any of our participating associations, or if you happen to be an active member, you will enjoy the opportunity to meet new friends, try new things, learn, compete, or simply enjoy some really great riding!
October 25-28, 2018
Just shy of 300 acres of scenic horse trails, the ranch is nestled in the heart of Missouri with creek crossings, timber, well marked trails and covered riding arena.
There are 40 electric sites, many pull through, with private fire pits and one bundle of wood provided each night. Covered 10′ x 10′ stalls are available to rent for $10 per night. Tying is not allowed so please be sure to reserve your stalls early!
Von Holten Ranch has been family owned for over 100 years. David and Brandy Von Holten are the fourth generation to own, operate, and live on the ranch.
