Join us for the traditional opening weekend of our off-road trails! Saturday and Sunday depart from and return to the GMHA grounds. Each day will feature a different marked trail with short and long mileage options.
The Spring Distance Rides at GMHA bring together competitive trail, endurance and pleasure riding in one fun weekend. Lots of options are offered for trail distances. This event is great for green horse/riders and experienced competitors alike. Mix and match your options and enjoy.
Test your horse's conditioning over a 2-Day, 50-Mile ECTRA sanctioned competitive trail ride and drive, or do a single-day 25-mile ride. Pleasure ride options are also offered both days at varying distances to suit everyone. Catered meals, stabling, free camping. Gorgeous, well-marked trails.
Distance Days is a 3-day celebration of equestrian trail riding. Competitive and pleasure riding are offered all 3 days with an incredible variety of distances. The weekend is built around the historic 3-Day 100-Mile Ride - the oldest and first in the U.S., now in its 84th year.
This year's Fall Foliage Rides will feature up to 4 full days of pleasure riding! We invite riders of all disciplines, ages, and abilities to join us for these opportunities to enjoy GMHA’s legendary trails at your own pace with your favorite friends, both human and equine.
The 50-Mile Endurance & 30-Mile Limited Distance Endurance Ride will cap off the GMHA season. This ride draws both Competitive Trail riders and Endurance riders, as many folks enjoy competing in both types of distance riding. It is dual-sanctioned by AERC and ECTRA.
