organizing a ride for HR members

as fall starts to set in and i drink my morning tea, the hot summer days are limited and the fall brisk days are setting in. with this perfect temperature i figured i would see if any HF members in PA, NJ, and NY range would like to do a fall gathering trail ride. take in some sights with other horse people.
edit: any member is welcomed, just note the location will be chosen between these three states.

i don't want to make any specific dates or location choice as i am unsure as to how many people would really be interested in doing this.

however here are some starting guidelines: so chirp in if you interested.

1. dates range late sept to late october -
-so whatever weekend works best for everyone who wants to particapate just post it and we can work on specific dates that way.

2. as for locations i know there are many places in pa, nj, and ny to ride and don't want to limit our options so if anyone has a preference of location please do post or once we get a headcount and an idea of where everyone would be coming from then we can pick a mutual spot in the middle.

if you are uncomfortable with posting any info in the thread feel free to pm me and i will work on finding dates and locations that work for the majority of people who would like to participate.

well heres to the start off the fall season with some fun :)

That's a long drive for me. I'm still breaking my mare in with the trailer. However, if anybody is interested, I plan to do some riding in the Shenandoah National Park this fall. They advertise over 180 miles of trails. The regs are pretty stiff, but there is also overnight camping allowed. You can also go outside park boundaries into state game lands to camp, where it's a little less regulated. It's only about 2 hours from me (I'm in Stafford, VA).

Didn't mean to hijack your thread. If there is interest, I'll start another.

for shenedoah riding stay at Graves mt campground, They have a big field across from the lodge, only about 10 or 15 a night. Porta pots and a couple running water spigots is all they have. But it has 15 miles of trails that hooks on to the National forest trails.

Shenandoah National Forest is about 2 1/2 hours from me, so figure at least 3-3 1/2 hours pulling a loaded trailer.

Definitely something to think about.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

kait, I would be interested in meeting somewhere to ride, but will depend on what weekend and where for me.

For the people talking about riding in VA, you should look at the introductory rides that the Old Dominion is putting on in October. If you choose to do the one at Fort Valley (scroll to the bottom of the page linked), I would love to meet you!

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

Blah! Wish you were closer Kait, I'd hit the trails with you!

We had a really neat event down the road in a tiny tiny town two weeks ago. "St. Paul Days", lots of wagons and outriders, dances, it is a blast. Unfortunately my family came over to ride ATV's so all I got to do was look, even made an offer on an outstanding Buckskin! It was hilarious coming up on the first wagon train on the old logging road, my parents sang dueling banjos before we got to them, they thought it was hilarious! Man those guys had some nice horses! I was sick I wasn't riding with them!!

So if anyone is in the NW AR area we have thousands of miles of amazing trails... Come on over!!
