Non-competitive trail rides offered each day.
Our trails are mostly two-track and jeep-track through the high desert. Hoof protection is absolutely necessary. If your horse is unaccustomed to our desert terrain, including some rock, you may wish to consider using hoof boots or pads.
Autumn Sun is part of the Idaho IronHorse Challenge. Ride safe. Ride far.
Endurance rides (50/55/50) begin at 7:30 each day
LD rides (25/30/25) begin at 8:00 each day
Trail riders may start anytime after the LD riders are out. Please check out with the ride manager before you leave camp.
Join us for happy hour prior to each evening's dinner and ride meeting.
Dinners will be potluck style. Management will provide the main course each evening; please bring your favorite dishes to share.
