Join us Sunday, September 8th for the Lollypop Farm Poker Ride. Enjoy a fun day of riding and friendly competition to benefit horses in need at Lollypop Farm. We’ll be meeting at Mendon Ponds Park at 8 a.m. and riding out at 9 a.m. sharp.
Horses and riders will arrive at the park and draw a playing card before hitting the trails. There will be several stations around the park where riders can pick up more randomly drawn playing cards. At the end of the event, the rider with the best poker hand wins!
Registration opens at 8 am and a guided group will ride out at 9 am, with the last group leaving at 11:30 am. The length of the group ride is about 3 miles and takes a little less than 1 hour at a leisurely pace. If you don't want to ride in a group you're welcome to go on your own. Park maps will be made available the morning of the ride. The terrain is mostly flat, through open fields and wooded trails, with some small hills and one small bridge to cross. There are no divisions. It is recommended that you are able to walk, trot, stop, and steer in a group setting for the ride.
Cost to participate: $25 per rider
All disciplines are welcome. Proof of negative coggins and rabies, ATSM/SEI certified helmet, and signed waiver are required day of the event.
