2020 OQHA All Breed Trail Ride & Mountain trail Challenge
june 17-21, 2020
It was a great week for the OQHA ride! All the storms went around the grounds and only a tiny bit of rain fell all week, with beautiful rainbows almost every morning.
The 2019 Trail Ride only had 300 go's, this year doubled with 600 go's. The community table may have been skipped this year due to Covid, but that did not stop everyone from coming. It was easy to keep distance with all the open space at the park. The camp was full! The majority joined in the evening trail ride which rode past the elk farm! This was a big hit this year. Friday Night Live Music was still enjoyed by Daniel Gray and a small silent auction that took place on Facebook and raffles at the park.
It was so nice to see almost every rider at the park has joined as an OQHA member.
