There will be a potluck meal taking place on Saturday evening. A HUGE thank you to Amy Preugschas for donating a bunch of pulled pork from their home raised team (herd) of Pigs for all riders/vets/volunteers to enjoy together! We would appreciate salads/sides for those wishing to join us.
Trail: Trail is a mix of 2 track and single track. Terrain is rolling with pasture, dirt, and bush trail. There is approx 1/2 mile of gravel however ditches are clear. Ride management asks that preference to rubber shoes if possible (hopefully we get some rain so we don’t have to worry about fire risk) however shoes are not required for this ride.
Ride Camp: Ride site is a flat pasture/reserve grazing area. It is a bit rough so please slow down when entering and crossing. Riders can spread manure however hay/straw MUST be cleaned up and removed with you due to risk of cross contamination of weed species. Porta potties on site. Horse water on sit. RIDE CAMP OPENS FRIDAY, June 9th AT 2PM.
