The Mason Neck Horse Coalition is sponsoring for a seventh year a trail ride and mounted scavengers hunt. This year the proceeds from the ride are to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Suggested minimum donation is $25.00 to participate and each rider will receive a participation ribbon.
Check-in at 10:00 am. Ride begins at 10:30 am and riders will ride at their own pace in groups. The trail will cover Pohick Bay Park Regional Park and Gunston Hall and will be marked. It will take about 2 hours (at a walk) and includes some rocky/muddy areas and hills. The ride begins and ends at Pohick Bay Regional Park (trailering instructions are below).
The ride will include a mounted scavenger hunt with prizes!
