How We Started
For the longest time, we wanted to create a community focused on positivity, building each other up, and doing some good in the world but had no idea where to begin.
When Covid-19 began people started taking virtual trail rides on Red Dead Online because they couldn't get to the barn to see their horses, and when we tried to attend we realized that nobody was hosting them for PC players!
Interested in participating, we created a Discord server for other PC gamers so they had a place to ride together and it has taken off from there.
The Rift quickly became a place for gamers of all kinds from all over the world to socially connect, forge friendships, and go on virtual trail rides to help relieve the stress and boredom that comes with quarantine and social distancing. As COVID restrictions have lifted across the globe, the spirit of our community has never faltered. We are hosting more trail rides and events now than ever before, and have no intention of slowing down.
With the help of our incredible community members, we have created a genuine, inspirational, and passionate community focused on chill vibes, good mental health, love, acceptance, & support.
What Are Trail Rides?
Trail rides are an in-game meet-up where we ride our virtual horses around the map and enjoy the view, company, and conversations! They are relaxing and meant to be a way to destress, though sometimes we do like to have a bit of chaotic fun! We host multiple trails nearly every day, as well as larger charity events to raise money for the causes we love such as BLM and the LGBTQIA+ community almost once a month!
