October 22-28, 2023
This is an event that appeals to a true trail rider! Imagine riding down a wooded trail, suddenly you leave the forest behind as you pull onto a hill overlooking Cross Country Trail Ride. You are able to see for miles in all directions since there are no leaves to block your view. It is a remarkable experience and indescribable to those who haven’t experienced it.
You might also be witness to native whitetail deer jumping smoothly out of your way as they are startled from a feeding area by your presence or the flight of an eagle as you cross the clear water of the Jacks Fork or Current Rivers. These things are experienced on a daily basis during this event.
Average attendance is approximately 600 guests. We provide a noon meal cooked on the trail that will tempt anyone. Normal menu items will include BBQ pork steak, beef brisket, homemade vegetable soup and chili, homemade donuts and much more. We cook on the trail each day Monday through Friday, weather permitting.
While the temperatures can sometimes be a little cool the food makes your trip out on horseback well worth the effort! Average temperatures range from low 40’s to mid 70’s. We serve meals at camp in the dining hall and dances are held there as well. With such a small group of guests we guarantee you’ll know almost everyone by the end of the week. Guests enjoy this event so much they won’t tell their friends about it for fear it will grow too large! If you’re looking for some fun at the end of the riding season this would be a great time for anyone.
