Members 14-17 years old must have a 4-H leader in attendance at the ride, designated by the county, to whom they are responsible, but this advisor does not need to accompany them on all rides. Youth are responsible to any of the State 4-H Trail Ride Committee members.

Horses: Participants will be responsible for bringing their own horse for their use. No stallions are allowed. Hay and grain will not be furnished. There will be space for picket lines. Due to the terrain in this area it is recommended that your horses be shod and conditioned. Horses should be controllable and safe on the trails to ensure a safe enjoyable ride for all. ASTM/SEI approved riding helmets are required for youth under the age of 19 and highly recommended for all riders.
