Join Nancy J. Reid and Lisa D. Smith, the mother-daughter travel team and publishers of Big Blend Magazines, for this episode of Big Blend Radio focusing on the Chief Joseph Trail Ride, a progressive trail ride hosted by the Appaloosa Horse Club. A portion of the ride is completed each year, with the entire sequence taking thirteen years to complete. Its route traces, as closely as possible, the route Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce took while attempting to escape the US Cavalry in 1877.

Featured guests include trail riders and organizers:
- Christy Wood - World champion horse trainer, instructor and owner of Wood N Horse Training Stables, in Three Rivers, California
- Steve Taylor - Appaloosa Horse Club, Inc.
- Andy Shaw and Ervin Gross - Chief Joseph Trail Ride organizers and “wranglers”.

Featured music is ‘Prayer for the Past’ from the album ‘As Things Could Be’ by Evren Ozan.
