Intro Ride 101
What is this event:
The intro ride is offered for riders who would like to sample the "endurance" experience on a short course. The horse will stand for vet check exams and the rider will follow a flagged course with other riders on the course traveling at various speeds.
Distance: 12 miles (marked as red ribbon, then purple ribbon)
Camping: You may camp overnight at Cowboy Camp or arrive Saturday morning before the ride.
Start Time: 10 am, check in and vet between 7 am and 9:30 am (no tack on the horse).
Important Things to Know:
- Pre-vetting is required

- The ride is on property open to the public. You may see hikers, bikers, riders, dog walkers, etc. Please be courteous to other users - if BLM receives complaints, we may not be invited back.
