Riders can hit the trail on Saturday morning (departure time around 10 am) for a 14 miles round trip or however long you wish to ride. Prior to riding you may put $6 towards a lunch meat platter which will be delivered to the meal site, or of course bring your own lunch. We stop and have lunch mid-way through the ride at someone's home, where there will be bathroom facilities available as well as places to hook the horses.
A potluck dinner will be held after the ride, there will be area provided for cold foods and crock pots.
There will be a bonfire Saturday night. This is being held at the Lyon's home so consideration of that fact is requested.
Sunday morning-a pancake / waffle social, topped off with Vermont maple syrup. Then saddle up for a trail ride or just kick back and relax. Thank you to Annette, who has always been the breakfast cooker! There is no charge for the breakfast, other than helping to clean up!
Must be a current member of the D.R.H.C. or do your enrollment on site-don't forget your horse's current Coggins.
Please follow these rules regarding dogs:
If you bring your dog to a DRHC sponsored trail ride it may NOT accompany riders out on the trail. This goes for marking and un-marking on the trails also. It must stay at its own campsite on a leash in hand or tethered. If it isn’t at its own campsite, it must be on a leash in hand. It may NOT be present at the area when/where meals are getting set up and taking place. If there is a campfire afterward it may accompany its owner on a leash in hand. All dog feces must be cleaned up immediately by owner.
Let’s work together on this so we can continue to have are animals with us. Thank you
A warning will be given to the owner and then if a second occurrence happens the willful violations of this policy will result in your dog being banned from future rides/events.
