1. Ride in single file and keep your group together. You can only ride as fast

     as your least experienced rider.

2. Horses are never to be ridden at a high rate of speed or full gallop even

    if all riders are experienced. Absolutely no racing. (If horses return to

    the barn with nostrils flaring, hot and sweaty, you have run the horses

    too hard.)

3.  Horses must be at a walk when leaving and returning to the barn.

4.  Always walk horses downhill.

5.  Never trade horses out on the trail.

6.  Reins are not to be wrapped around your hands or body and are not to

     be used to tie up your horse.

7.  Watch the ground and don’t let horses walk over wire gates or barbed


8.  Hold onto your horse if you dismount to open a gate. All other riders are

     to pass through the open gate and wait for the dismounted rider.

9.  No smoking or drinking alcohol on the trails. You may not ride if you are

     under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

10. Stay on the trails and avoid any muskeg or boggy areas.

11.  Members must ride with at least one guest.

12. No dogs allowed.

13. All riders under the age of 18 must wear a helmet.

14. We advise all riders have proper foot wear.
