Support our Scholarship Funds and Enjoy a New Trail Ride!

Reciprocity is “the practice of exchanging things with others for mutual benefit, especially privileges granted by one country or organization to another.” We’re encouraging riders to exchange a donation to our scholarship funds with a fun ride on some new trails! More information about the scholarships can be found at https://www.vthorsecouncil.org/scholarships/ :

  • Youth Scholarships for those under 19 years of age
  • Cliff Murray and Floyd Fuller Memorial Scholarship for college students
  • Adult Continuing Education Scholarship for those over 19 planning to attend clinics and workshops

The $50 entry fee and any additional pledges raised are tax deductible and provides access to a 6 or 12 mile trail option that winds through woods and forest and is wide enough to allow novice riders to be accompanied by a mentor, or for friends to enjoy the trail side by side.

The Vermont Horse Council describes how best to pass horses when you encounter them on the trail.

Limited to 30 riders, the event begins at 10 am with staggered starts. This is a no frills ride to assure that funds go directly to the scholarship funds. Bring your own food and non-alcoholic drinks and proof of a negative Coggins test. Helmets are required for all riders.

You can sign up on line by clicking on the button on this page, or by downloading a ride form and mailing in a check.

Come explore this beautiful trail system and support this important mission of the VHC.
