2021 Ride Schedule

When (if) entry forms are available, we'll put links to printable registration forms for all rides in the table below. You can also sign up on-line at RMS, the NATRC Ride Management System, and many of our rides allow you to pay on-line.

Oh yeah. NATRC Region 2 (their rides are pretty much in So Cal and Arizona) isn't that far away and their rides are great, too - check out what they have to offer.

And most of our events will offer Leisure rides, designed to let riders figure out if NATRC is for them. A description of what's involved is here.

Translation of ride types and divisions: An "A" ride is two days, a "B" ride is one day ride on Saturday. We don't have any this year, but a "B2" ride is a one day ride on Sunday. The divisions are O, CP, N and L. Sooo, "O" is Open, "CP" is Competitive Pleasure, "N" is Novice, and "L" is Leisure. So when you see "A" O/CP/N "B" N/L in the ride descriptions below that means there's a two day ride with Open, Competitive Pleasure and Novice divisions, and a one day ride on Saturday for Novice and Leisure divisions. There's more info about the divisions in the Frequently Asked Questions section of the website.

Spring Kick-Off and Clinic, April 24, Loomis, CA
The clinic offers an introduction to trail riding skills and/or improving horsemanship on the trails. This is a great opportunity for new trail riders to work on skills for themselves and their horses OR a useful tune-up for more experienced riders or those on less experienced horses. The clinic will be held at the Loomis Basin Horsemen's Arena in Loomis, CA. There's great camping available nearby, so you can make this a one day clinic or choose to stay longer, with easy access to Western States or Folsom Lake Trails. Information about the campsites and directions to them are in the registration packets. You can see photos of the clinic site at www.lbha.us. For additional information, contact Linda Thomason at linda.thomason0610@gmail.com (510-708-1439) or Debbie Murphy at equuspassage@aol.com (916-719-6265).

Note that that there are separate downloads for riders and volunteers - they just combine all waivers that apply for easy (well, easier) printing.

Eel River Ride, June 19-20, Potter Valley, CA
We'll be riding in an old land grant ranch that the Eel River runs through and borders the Mendocino Natl Forest. Our campsite is at about 1500' and we'll be climbing to about 3000', so it should be cooler than the valley floor, and the wildflowers should still be blooming. This ride is spectacular. Maps from our last ride there are here.
