Wyatt Earp Vendetta Ride

Wyatt Earp’s Vendetta Ride

Tombstone Horseback Ride, Arizona Territory  

October 15 – 20, 2017

Our five-day historic Tombstone, Arizona horseback ride and tour will focus on Wyatt Earp’s Vendetta Ride of March/April 1882.  This most successful and ever popular Old West horseback ride traces Wyatt Earp and his posses’ bloody trail of retribution against the Cowboy 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.  An earlier attempt on the life of older brother Virgil by the Cowboys left him with his left arm maimed and useless for life.

Another assassination attempt is foiled in Tucson at the train depot as Morgan’s body is being transferred to California for burial, when Wyatt and his posse of gunmen discovers Cowboys Frank Stilwell and Ike Clanton laying in wait for the Earp family.  With the subsequent brutal murder of Stillwell by Wyatt and his posse, Wyatt Earp’s Vendetta Ride began (Stillwell was “the most shot-up man I ever saw” according to a railroad employee who discovered the body).

During the ensuing month, Florentio Cruz, Curly Bill Brocius, and Johnny Barnes would die.  The debate surrounding the Vendetta Ride, the death of Curly Bill Brocius – leader of the Cowboy faction – the exact location of their infamous shoot-out, and Johnny Ringo’s supposed “suicide” continue to this day.

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.
