***CANCELLED FOR 2023, returning in 2024***
Dash and dance down the trail with your horse 2 miles north of Shellbrook, SK in the Canwood forest. With mostly flatter terrain, the trails are two track dirt/sand with water provided approx every 5 miles. Trails are barefoot friendly, one small section of old railway track (0.2 miles) that is railway rock and no way around it (too swampy). Trails will be very well marked with some fun surprises along the way!
Ride Camp is only 0.2 miles off the #55 highway in a hayfield. Water will be provided in camp for horses, people must provide their own. We’ll have a potluck supper on Saturday evening, ride management will provide the main meat dish.
Distances offered will be an introductory 15, limited distance 25, and endurance 50. If enough interest we would be happy to offer 75/100 miles. Negative coggins will be required.
We welcome all breeds and all ages of riders. Juniors (under 16) will be required to ride with an adult sponsor (18 or older) and MUST wear a helmet at all times while mounted. We encourage all riders to wear a helmet. Horses must be minimum 4 yrs old to participate in the intro or limited distance, and min. 5 yrs old for the 50 or longer. Dogs are welcome in camp but MUST be on a leash or contained at all times.
We would like to grow our sport by offering discounted fees for juniors….so bring a little buddy or friend and introduce them to endurance! See you on the trails at the Dragonfly Dash & Dance!!
