Riding experience is not required, but participants must provide their own horse. Riders and their parties should arrive at the Bridger Ski Bowl Parking lot on July 6th to check in between 8:00 and 10:00 AM for the upcoming guided ride. Approximately 250 riders will be accommodated. The ride will commence between 8:30 and 10:30 AM; those checking in after 10:00 AM must draw their poker hand upon arrival.

Registration includes one poker hand, a barbecue chicken lunch, and eligibility for prize drawings. The online registration fee is $35 per person. Lunch only is available for $10. Children under 12 may register for $10 each but will not be eligible for poker hand prizes. However, they will have access to lunch and door prizes.

The approximately 10 mile multi-use trail route is clearly marked with colored tape. Riders should plan for about 4 hours to complete the route. A shorter optional route will also be made available. Proper horse and riding equipment are required to participate.

The event is finished.
