There will be a POTLUCK SUPPER on Saturday evening. The main meat will be supplied by ride management. We ask that those wishing to enjoy supper with us provide a side or salad for the table. We are also hoping to have the fire pit flames dancing on Saturday evening after supper/awards for everyone to enjoy.
This event takes place at a “fee for use” campsite. Please review Link to Camping Fees at the bottom of this page for more information on camping fees.
Trail: Some of the best trails around! A mix of one and two track trails that Mark freshly mows a majority of prior to the ride. Footing is mainly pasture, hay fields, old road and bush trail with a tiny bit of gravel. There are 2 shallow river crossings. Barefoot friendly.
Ride Camp: 24′ Steel panel pens are provided for all horses where you can park your rig in front of. Pens are large enough to house 2 horses comfortably. Horse water is to the pens. Porta potties on site. Potable water also to the site. Fire pits are on site as well. See links below for directions to ride site.
Camp fees: Weekend use fees are negotiated by ERA with the owners prior to the event based on preliminary numbers.
