The Vermont Horse Council (VHC) Board of Directors would like to inform you that there will be no VHC sponsored Tunbridge ride this year, 2017. Liability concerns have surfaced this year and we were unable to resolve the concerns in a timely enough fashion to allow the ride committee to plan a ride that would meet your high expectations. We would like to thank you for your support over the years and are hopeful we will be on track to bring the ride back for 2018.
In the meantime, it might be helpful for you to know that Green Mountain Horse Association hosts a lovely fall foliage ride from September 28 through October 2 at their South Woodstock facility. This event does permit camping and might be a nice alternative for this year. You can access more information about that ride at gmhainc.org.
Another option is to come to the beautiful Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and participate in the VHC NEKET trail ride that is scheduled for September 8 – 10, 2017. There is a nice flat grass field for camper set up, tent camping and temporary corral set up. The committee is working on new shorter loops and the traditional longer woodland loops will be available. More information can be found at vthorsecouncil.org
The Vermont Horse Council is also planning a one-day ride on July 22nd in Orange, VT to support our important mission of funding equestrian education. The ride will be no frills and will include two loops (one 6 mile and one 12 mile) on beautiful wooded trails and fields not seen by any of our members to date. Details for this event will be on the website shortly.
For those of you who have sent entries, paperwork and money for the 2017 VHC Tunbridge Ride, we will be returning all of your documents promptly.
