endurance riders in va ?

I am looking for some advice on the fort valley ride in october. I plan to enter in a beginners class as this will be our first "official" long distance ride. We had trained for the same ride two years ago but due to a bad pasture incident my gelding was in we are now just able to start conditioning him for long rides again. Anyone on here ever rode these courses?

Come to Orkney springs this weekend. Almost same area as Fort Valley, there is a ride and tie as well as night riding and trail riding on some of the same trails that the OD. Is happening on. Assuming it doesnt monsoon I plan on coming with my trail horse.

I have done that ride multiple times - it's one of my favorites!! I would be happy to answer any questions that I can.


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

Lol Joe4d...you scared me! I was like, am I nuts, I thought it was the following weekend :)

Do we have any Endurance groups that ride regularly around the NOVA area? I'm in desperate need of some longer distance trail companions. Even if they have to borrow one of my horses!
