How about a weekend with good friends, a good horse, and beautiful trails at a premier horse campground? All your meals will be prepared for you, and there will be a live band and silent and live auctions to raise funds for therapeutic riding and equine-assisted therapy programs in Indiana.
All this can be yours at the charity trail ride co-sponsored by the Indiana Quarter Horse Association and Midwest Trail Ride horse campground from Friday, September 5 through Sunday, September 7 — the weekend after Labor Day. The campground is located near Lake Monroe and the Hoosier National Forest.
Approximately 175 people have attended this ride each year over the past 17 years, creating a great tradition of fun and lots of support for therapeutic riding. Welcome social and ride on your own on Friday, dinner and silent auction, lunch-on-the-trail ride on Saturday with dinner and live auction on Saturday night, and ride on your own and church, if you like, on Sunday morning. As a special treat this year, Justin the Artistic Horse will demonstrate his talent for painting late Saturday afternoon, assisted by his able human ‘manager’, Adonna Combs.
Prints of two of Justin’s paintings are being donated to the auction on Saturday night, along with terrific items from retailers who support the ride and new and gently used items brought by ride participants who support this good cause.

No camping equipment? Midwest Trail Ride has air-conditioned cabins that sleep four.
No horse but want to hang out with your friends? Come as a guest for dinner and dancing on Saturday night or call ahead to Midwest Trail Ride; they may be able to provide a horse if arrangements are made in advance.
