Our Mission is to provide Equine outdoor activities for the family in the tradition
of past generations. Our forefathers experienced the wagon as their only means of transportation. We try to feel
the same experiences in our modern age, using horse, mule and the wagon as our tools.
Our members experience wagon events throughout the year as a family group. Members support
each other on the trips as well as during the year with other social activities. Many members are still active with
their own horse , mule and wagons, while others still participate and have retired their teams and wagons.
Western Oklahoma had its beginnings in 1967 when Spec Lester started making rides in wagons.
