WIN A FEATHERLITE TRAILER…JUST FOR RIDING! These two rides are part of the Mid-Atlantic Trailer Series! Only 30 rides are part of the series, so your chances are great! Every time you ride in a trailer series ride you’re automatically entered into a random drawing to be held at the end of the year for a brand new Featherlite horse trailer (model 8107) provided by Huffman Trailer Sales in Harrisonburg, VA. No Strings, just fun, so Ride, Ride, Ride and Win!
EARLY SIGN UP PRIZES! You’ll receive one ticket for each day you sign up before the ride for great prizes like free feed, supplements, and our grand prize of a Paid Entry into Perfect Partners Equine Makeover Clinic Weekend ($475 value) You don’t even have to be good to win! Just ride!
SATURDAY – MURDER MYSTERY CTC RIDE! It's the Wild West and local ranch owner, Dray Duncan, is holding his annual Barn Party BBQ. Just as guests are arriving, poor Dray is found dead in the bunkhouse. Things look mighty confusin'; sumthin' don't add up! Did he die from natural causes or could this be a case of homicide at the hoedown? Help Sheriff Remington and the rest of his posse figure out what really happened while you’re completing the ACTHA obstacles. Upon return you’ll have the chance to interrogate suspects and unravel the mystery!

Well if anyone has ever done this I would really like to know what you thought? I want to experience new things but don't want to go to an event I will be set up to fail..not in terms of ribbons and such but in terms of not being prepared.
