No idea what GMHA stands for, looked at the group , seemed Competitive trail oriented. But more rides like that might get some crossover into endurance. The North East is reportedly loosing AERC members.
On NE fb page,,
I told them I had renewed even though I don't ride NE, Va is in NE so my membership counts there even though I ride SE. Not sure where they got data but pretty sure the poster is a NE director.
Seemed like some of the western and central areas are loosing rides. Southeast is booming though, two new rides added this year and RMs biggest problem seem to be finding a free weekend.
I so wanna ride with you out west. I really am a much funner , nice guy in person. :)
Pretty sure GMHA is some thing like "green mountain horse association" as that is the area of Vermont they are in. They do primarily ECTRA events (which is CTR), but I believe they have always done an AERC sanctioned ride yearly too. Not sure about ATCHA involvement.. Maybe something new this year to appeal to newbies?
