Event Details

The Fun begins on Friday afternoon with an In-Hand Event.  This course will challenge your skills while showcasing your horse, mule or mini as you maneuver thru this exciting course, there will be some obstacles that you may have never seen before as well as some of those favorite obstacles. 

Saturday and Sunday will find you mounted and going thru obstacles that will test your skills and show the talent that you have inspired with your mount.  Different obstacles each day and the choice of 3 different levels will add to the fun and adventure that Equine Trail Sports brings to you.

We are hoping to sponsor a special event on our course on Saturday after we are done, to showcase Local Equine Veterans Programs.

Please note Companion Riders do not ride the obstacles in any events.  Due to the nature of this event, we will be unable to accept companion riders or handlers.
