    Name: Equine Trail Sports Obstacle & Trail Challenge
    Date: May 5, 2018
    Event Description:
    Join us for one event or for the entire weekend!

    The Obstacle course is Outdoors on the farm, so be prepared for weather. It is a built in Obstacle Course, and we will pick 12 obstacles for this challenge. There will be a warm up area in the 72 x 120 indoor arena, and a 55' Sand roundpen. Obstacles will be a mix of natural and creative, and will be good for all levels of horses. At Obstacle Challenges you ARE allowed to bring multiple horses as we don't have the same limitations as a Trail Challenge would have with that. You may not share horses however!

    The trail will be set on 6-7 miles of nice trails, there is a great mix of scenery, and trail, but all is fun and safe for young riders and young horses. The obstacles will be Natural Obstacles. Due to parking restrictions at the trail head, we will be camping at the farm and driving to the trail head, and meeting at the trail for the competition. If you come in the night before, and set up camp, we will have some trailers set up to carpool up to the trailhead and back if desired, so you don't have to take your camp down for the event.

    High Lining, Tying or using Portable Corrals is allowed, but please be courteous to the pasture. We do pasture and hay this field, so if your horse paws/digs, please use mats or get an overnight pen, and please move your portable corrals around so they don't destroy one patch of grass over the weekend.

    There WILL be a Series High Point Award for the two Victory Acres Farm LLC Weekends. Series High Point & Reserve High Point for the Trail Challenges and a Series High Point & Reserve High Point for the Obstacle Challenges! As well as Awards for other categories (to be announced) at the end of the series. Day awards are Ribbons to 6th place in all three divisions.
