Trail Rules and Regulations

These rules apply to the regular, slow group.  If you go with the fast group, some of these rules are hard to apply - so ride at your own riskRide in the group to you and your horses ability.

 

  • The Trail Boss is the person in charge on the ride. Be sure to check in with the Trail Boss and sign the roster sheet along with any applicable release forms.

  • Be saddled and ready (release signed etc.) at the time listed for the ride—don’t keep everyone waiting.

  • Do not move out until all are mounted. 

  • If your horse kicks, put a red ribbon in its tail.  If riding a stallion, he should have a yellow ribbon in his tail and forelock.

  • Maintain a safe distance from other horses. Keep at least a horse’s length between you and the horse in front of you at all times, especially going up and down hill.

  • Do not pass the trail boss without permission. 

  • Club members are responsible for any guests they bring. They should ensure the guest has signed a release and introduce the guest to the trail boss.

  • Your horse should be tied to your trailer with a quick release knot.  No hobbles or ground ties permitted.

  • No riding double.

  • No smoking on trails except at areas designated by the trail boss.

  • Children under 17 must be accompanied by a parent or sponsor.

  • Cantering will be controlled and at the discretion of the trail boss. 

  • Ask for permission to pass slower horses.  Do not trot or canter up to or past other riders. 

  • If crossing water, do not stop immediately in front of other horses to water your horse.  Try to find a spot either above or below the water crossing. If your horse won’t cross the water move out of the way so that other riders may cross and follow someone whose horse willingly goes through. 

  • Last but not least, relax and enjoy your ride, the company of your mount and your fellow club members!

A non-member can ride with us two times ($1 charge) before they must become a member. Applications are not taken at the ride - you must mail them or sign up online.

In case of inclement weather, monitor the website or Facebook.  You can also call the Trail Boss to see if the ride is still on.​​​
