CHAMP at Good Hope Farm, South Hero, Vermont
Arrive at 9:00 a.m. to “hit the trail” at 10:00 a.m.
Join us for a fun-filled, scenic, eight or sixteen mile trail ride through South
Hero’s vibrant, green meadows, bountiful apple orchards and cool cedar
woods. The trail ride will also bring us down an old railroad bed bordering a
beaver pond and a natural wildlife bog. A buffet picnic lunch will be served
on a grassy lakeside site at Eagle Camp where you may walk your horse
down to take a cool drink from beautiful Lake Champlain. During lunch,
CHAMP volunteers are available to hold your horse while you take a break
to eat and relax.
The trail ride is approximately sixteen miles round trip (most of the same trail
is used on the return trip). Ride the entire thing, or opt to trailer your horse
home from the lunch site. South Hero trails are fun to ride, whatever you
decide you and your horse are able to do. Trails will be marked and you will
be given a map to follow. The ride can be shortened considerably by staying
mainly on the roads.
This is one of CHAMP’s major fund raising events and we hope that you are
able to join us. For more information, call Jean at CHAMP at Good Hope Farm
