A scarce history of the Frontier Boys horseback riding club from Alameda County, CA, described as the most elite, the most friendly, the most relaxed, and the widest roaming of all the rides. The annual ride was kept to approximately 75 riders to allow them to enter areas larger rides can't go for logistical reasons. Emulating the California vaqueros of olden days, these rides took them into some of the most beautiful areas of California including Hearst Ranch; Mount Diablo; Tamalpais; Bolinas; Santa Cruz; Calaveras County; Soda Springs; and more.
