Pennsylvania Equine Council Events
The 2017 PEC trail ride was a huge success. Near perfect weather, wonderful scenery and great food left little to be desired. There are very few places in Pennsylvania where we can conduct such a ride and have all these great amenities.
If you didn’t make the ride in 2017, for whatever the reason, you will have another opportunity in 2018. We will return to Summer’s Allegheny Trail Ride in Marienville, PA, August 3-5, and have contracted DB’s Smoking BBQ to again be our caterer. That makes us guaranteed to have great food and a beautiful place to ride. You will be able to visit Pat’s Rocks, Hazel’s Rocks, the stone quarry, Kelly Pines, the dynamite shack, the compressors/engines, the “bra” trail and many other great destinations. There is also an historic site that has been discovered on a nearby trail that boasts Indian artifacts from centuries ago. Much too much to see in one weekend. This is not a guided ride; maps of the Spring Creek Trail system will be available.
First-time participants that were not on the 2017 ride will have priority to sign up on a first come–first served basis. That sign up period will end on June 15, 2018. If the ride limit has not been reached at that time (approximately 44 riders), we will begin filling the ride from the waiting list of applications from riders that were on the 2017 ride. Refunds to applicants exceeding the ride limit will be made by July 1, 2018. Electric sites will be assigned on a first come-first served basis as well. All participants must be PEC members.
There will be a pot luck supper on Thursday evening, the “gathering day”. PEC will arrange for Friday and Saturday evening meals including coffee and water. Breakfast and lunch are your responsibility. Stalls are included in the price of the ride and are required. No highlines, portable corrals, tying to trailers, etc. is acceptable. There is water at the barns for your horses as well as a creek that runs right through camp. There is a bath house with showers and flush toilets.
