This year’s Fall Foliage Rides will feature up to 4 full days of pleasure riding! The fun begins on Thursday with an off site trailer ride in a nearby scenic location (TBA). It continues with three days of pleasure riding (Friday through Sunday) from the GMHA grounds.
Fall is the best time of year for trail riding in Vermont, come enjoy it with your horses and friends on the beautiful trails GMHA has to offer.
Each day begins with a light breakfast fare and ride briefing. Trail is then open for riders to head out on either a short loop or long loop option; depending on weather conditions, lunch may be served at a scenic spot along the way, or back at GMHA.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 we will not be having any social events or dinner. We hope you will still come out and enjoy the trails with your friends while social distancing. Lunch will be a bagged lunch and grab n go breakfast. No gathering for meals.
