New for 2017:
**METROPARK EXPRESS RIDERS**
For those coming from the South...US-23 has a LOT of construction right now between Ann Arbor and Brighton. The lanes are quite narrow in some spots. It is recommended to find an alternate route especially if you have a big rig.
*White River Rides are under NEW MANAGEMENT and will be utilizing the 10 mile trail we used Labor Day 2015. Over 100 acres of available land is also being explored for expanding trails in the future. We've brought back the year end high mileage award for all three divisions, one horse/one rider. On Saturday, each weekend, a 10-15 mile Introductory ride with clinic is offered for those wanting to get started in the sport. LDs & Comp are now 25 miles each day and all camp sites are electric except those in the field. Join us for the fun at the Spring, Summer and Fall White River Rides!!!
*Grand Island May is offering a 15 mile Novice ride, this is one of our U.P. rides!
*Pine Marten Run has had a date change, it is now held in July. Come enjoy this beautiful ride in Michigan's Upper Peninsula!
*Shore To Shore has a new format and camp change. The rides are held Saturday through Friday with an option of a 250 mile 5-day Pioneer ride offered Monday-Friday, and the first three nights camp is South Branch. Join us for this unique gem of a ride!
