WHAT WE DO

In the Mountain Riders Horse Club, we participate in a broad range of activities. Throughout the course of the year we go on trail rides, which include our end of the semester rides in which we make arrangements for all members that do not have access to a horse to participate. Along with trail rides we participate in the homecoming parade, pack and camping trips, RamRide, and a variety of other community events.
