SALTY VETS Benefit & Extravaganza Saturday, Nov. 3rd 2018

TRAIL COURSES

Trail courses will be offered for all levels to include beginning, intermediate and advanced.  We will also offer an unmounted trail course.  


You may do the trail course any time between 9 a.m. and noon.  Entry fees for each course are $10 and all fees will be donated to SALTY VETS.  Rides will be judged and awards announced at 1:00 p.m. day of event.  You can enter the day of the event or pre-register here (Payment button will be up soon!).  


The trail course is for everyone!  All ages, all breeds of horses and all disciplines of riding to include western, english and gaited are welcome.  


Helmets (riding or bike helmets) will be required when mounted at any time during the event. 

HUNTER PACE

A Hunter Pace is an event that is part fox hunt (minus the fox and the hounds!),  part trail ride and part scavenger hunt!  You can ride the hunter pace as a single or with a partner.  


The hunter pace is timed but is not a race.  There are three categories (walk, trot, canter) that will have an optimum time determined before the event. The rider or team who comes closest to the optimum time will win. 


At the event, riders will be given a map of the farm.  There will be points noted and at each point there will be a bucket.  You will have to pick the item out of the bucket to show that you have been to the check point.  Upon completion, the rider or team closest to the optimum time wins.  No watches allowed!


Helmets (riding or bike helmets) will be required when mounted at any time during the event. 

ON FOOT WILDERNESS TREK

The On Foot Wilderness Trek is similar to the Hunter Pace but is not timed.  You will still collect items along the way to show you have completed the trek.  Participation favors will be awarded.  A good way to enjoy hiking through nature and support our Salty Vets!

KIDS FAMILY GAMES AND EVENTS

Beginning at 1:00 p.m., we are going to have some fun at our Extravaganza!  Lots of games and activities will be offered for both kids and adults.  


Some of our activities will be sack races, corn hole, wife carry, tug-o-war and many more!


Participants will need to have a bracelet to compete or participate in the games.  Bracelets can be purchased for $5 for a kid or single person; family rate is $25.  All fees will be donated to our Salty Vets  Foundation. 


LIVE MUSIC with ETHAN TORSAK

Ethan Torsak will be performing LIVE from 1 - 4 p.m.!  Enjoy this talented musician free of charge.  He will play in the covered arena so bring a chair and be ready for a musical treat!
