The Spanish Peaks Pioneer
Ride camp opens Tuesday. Location: SoCo Endurance Spanish Peaks Ride Camp. Five days of riding, (Saturday – Wednesday) with fun/intro rides, LDs & 50s all days. The middle day also offers a 55-mile option for any horse-rider teams going for a “pioneer,”. AERC will only allow 1 Pioneer ride per event from now on, therefor our only Pioneer option is days 1-2-3. We are very excited to be hosting the SoCo Limited Distance Championship, Ride & Tie, and Equathon during this event! Day 3 vet check is OUT, as the trail will take you “over the wall.” (All other vet checks are IN. We will host our traditional Whole Hog Hootenanny, with live music, on Wednesday evening. For those coming for the whole event (Spanish Peaks Pioneer + Wahatoya Cup,) Thursday is our day of rest, and then vet-in for the Wahatoya Cup will be Friday (see below for more WC details.) There will be overall, multi-day achievements recognized for all distances ridden cumulatively. Start times LDs-7:30am, 50s-7:00am, Fun rides start after 8am and are totally flexible.
