This is an open to the public event and its main objective is to have fun and learn skills. Take your horse over a wooden plank bridge, drag a tire, walk through a row of pool noodles, back through a narrow ground pole obstacle, etc. It’s a wonderful course where you’re bound to walk away with new skills and it’s a great opportunity to expose your horse to some new and different challenges. Years past this has been a members only event but this year it’s open to the public. OSY Members can participate free of charge, guests pay $20. All profits will go towards furthering our club’s trail course and obstacles. There will also be lunch available for $5 and water available for purchase– members and guests must pay separate for lunch.
Youth 14 and under.
