April 15 Easter Scavenger Hunt
July 8 & September 9 – Prize Rides
October 21 Halloween Scavenger Hunt

Two prize rides will be held in 2017 (Horses & Hops and Equines & Vines).  We partner with Bridle Trails Park Foundation to hold these events.   We are also working on two scavenger hunts.  All trail rider events are held at Bridle Trails State Park.

A Prize Ride is a trail ride with stops on the trail for riders to draw numbered chips for each “hand” they have purchased.  The scores are compiled and prizes are given to the highest score, lowest score, etc. 

A scavenger hunt will have people looking for objects related to Easter (for the April event) and Halloween (for the October event).  Participants will record all of the objects they see along a designated trail.  The individuals who identify the most objects are eligible to win a prize.

April 15th – Easter Scavenger Hunt.  First rider out at 10:00am, last rider out at Noon.  Prizes awarded at approximately 3:00pm.  Entry fee is $10.00 for LWSC members, $15.00 for non-members.  No dogs, stallions or ponying of rider-less horses allowed.

Lunch was available for $5.00 IF pre-ordered by Wednesday April 12th.  

July 8th – Horses and Hops.  This prize ride also includes micro brew tasting and root beer floats.  In 2016 there was an unexpected insurance issue and serving beer was not possible.  We have the kinks worked out for this year.
 
September 9th – Equines and Vines.  This prize ride also includes wine tasting.

Trail Obstacle Training


2017: July 9th – Sue Shecket Memorial Trail Challenge
2017: September 10 – Trail Obstacle Training Day

Obstacle training develops calmness, balance, responsiveness to aides, and trust between horse and rider, using objects and terrain found/encountered on the trail and in the “real world”. It carries over to any type of riding in all disciplines, and is beneficial for horses and riders at any age and stage of training.

A variety of “interesting” objects and challenges will be set up around the arena, and you will be free to experiment with and experience them at your own pace in a safe and supervised environment. Barrels, poles and flags will be set up in the big arena for 1 hour each for gaming practice. 

In October, Sue Shecket passed away after a long battle with cancer.  The event on July 8th will be in her honor as she was the long time show manager of these events.​
