Walnut Creek Preserve

Trail Ride

Saturday, May 20, 2017

9am-2pm

This is a rare opportunity to ride part of a 50 mile private trail system through the pristinely beautiful 1500 acre conservancy land of Walnut Creek Preserve during a 2 hour trail ride. These trails are usually only open to ride by invitation. The ride will take you and your horse through woods and meadows, alongside a waterfall, on bridges over creeks. Pre-registration is necessary as this ride is only open to 30 riders, so please register early. A minimum donation of $60 per rider reserves your space on this ride and includes lunch. This trail ride is currently sold out, however please stay tuned and check our Facebook page regularly - we will probably have another one this Fall.

NOTE: The original date was Sat, April 22, however had to be postponed until Sat, May 13 due to weather. Sorry for the inconvenience. Those who have already registered and cannot make the 13th of May may request a refund of their donation. Please email info@ferafhs.org with the request for refund and a mailing address to send the refund check. Thank you. THE NEW RAIN DATE IS SATURDAY, MAY 20, 2017.
