The 20th Anniversary Season of Caza Ladron has just wrapped up, and what a marvelous season it was. Our hounds, always impressive in their drive and the ability to follow scent in dry conditions, were phenomenally bold, biddable and did their jobs nobly for us. Our staff kept the whole shooting match rolling along with grace and athleticism. And our members supported the effort, enjoyed themselves, and made it all worthwhile.
This summer we'll continue the fun with a variety of trail rides, a fun day, hunter paces and road trips, so stay tuned!
Guests are always welcome, just let Phyllis Gonzales, honorary secretary, know, or reach Nancy Ambrosiano, board president. Fill out the liability release before you arrive, to save time, it's linked just below.
