DISTANCE DAYS – A Three Day Celebration of Competitive Riding at GMHA

Featuring the 88th Annual 100-Mile Competitive Trail Ride (CTR)

A 3-Day 100-Mile Competitive Trail Ride is a unique equestrian challenge. The GMHA 100-Mile is the first of its kind, dating back to 1936. It is still one of the best tests of horsemanship and equestrian fitness available today.

  • 40 miles the first day,
  • 40 miles the second day, and
  • 20 miles the third day under ECTRA-sanctioned competitive trail rules.

The horse who completes the distance within the time window in the best overall condition wins. Enjoy the fun and friendly competition all wrapped up in 88 years of tradition!

Horse Health Requirements

GMHA requires a negative Coggins and proof of rabies vaccination within 12 months for each horse that comes on the property.  Rabies titers are accepted within one year of event date and must accompany a note from your veterinarian explaining the reason why the vaccine could not be administered.

Please note that the State of Vermont requires a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection within 30 days or Exhibition Permit from the Vermont Agency of Agriculture’s Animal Health office for any horses entering the state. GMHA does not require these documents with entry, but the VT Agency of Agriculture may enforce these regulations at any time.
