Riding pre-requisites

You need to be a confident rider.  If you've only ridden 3 times  and are about to get on your friend's 3 year old thoroughbred, think again. Horses also need to be a decent level of fitness.  This is a cross-country trail with big hills.  If you're pulling an old mare out of the field that hasn't been ridden since last year's ride... Please think again. 

Basic Riding rules

Horses must be ridden with a bridal and saddle. No bareback or bareback pads. No riding with a halter. Horses that kick must have a red ribbon in their tail. ABSOLUTELY NO PASSING THE FRONT WRANGLER!
