Description: Sign up to challenge yourself and your horse on a 1- to 2-hour challenge course with natural trail obstacles and questions about nature along park trails. Awards and certificates in youth and adult divisions. HELMETS RECOMMENDED. Participants trailer their horses to Swine Creek Reservation's Lakeside Shelter to meet a naturalist and volunteers. Participants will be assigned departure times in order of registration. Riders will ride out individually or in pairs at a leisurely pace since time is not a factor in this event. RIDERS WILL COMPLETE THE CHALLENGE COURSE IN ONE OR TWO HOURS and, once finished, may then ride trails on their own. Trails will have hills, gravel, mud, streams, bicycles, hikers, Amish buggies and other challenges. This program is designed to unify and educate trail users. Bring a shovel to clean up after your horse in the parking lot. Also, please let us know if you intend to cancel in consideration for the waiting list. Registration Required.
