This will be a less structured and more informal affair than our fall clinics, an opportunity to camp with your horse, practice riding endurance-style trails, and pick the brains of experienced endurance riders. It will also be an appropriate venue for introducing a new or young horse to camping, strange horses, and unfamiliar trails in a relaxed, non-competitive setting.
Participants will arrive Saturday morning and set up camp. Volunteers will be available to assist you with this if you're new to horse-camping. Once you're set up, you can check out examples of endurance tack and equipment, practice the vetting procedure, ride the approximately 5 miles of marked trails (with or without an experienced mentor), and snoop around other peoples' campsites to see what creative ideas you can copy! We hope to have someone available to give a tutorial on trailer parking (backing up, leveling, etc.). In the evening we will have a potluck supper and maybe a campfire (if weather permits).
Sunday morning you can pack up and leave right away if you've learned everything you need to know, but we hope that you'll stay and go out for another ride! We'll probably have some new volunteers who couldn't come on Saturday with more and different knowledge to share.
