Fun Ride

Memorial Day weekend
SUNDAY May 26, 2019

May 26 GDETF Fun Ride CANCELLED…but save the date for our next event October 5/6 2019.

The rain got the best of us this time; however, after many conversations and meetings between the ride committee and GDETF board members, we have decided that instead of trying to beat the weather (rain now and the heat of the summer), we are going to skip to our October ride. It may be a Fun Ride, a Poker Ride, or a combination of both and is sure to be an EQUESTRIAN WEEKEND EXTRAVAGANZA done in true GDETF fashion with beautiful trails, delicious food, great music, and spectacular raffle prizes!


As most of you know, the Memorial Day weekend Fun Ride and our Poker Ride in October are our big fund raisers to continue with the improvements and maintenance of Dru Barner campground and area trails. We are going to be down one ride this year, and are planning some much needed work at the Balderston Staging Area, so please consider donating.

You can make a check payable to GDETF and mail to Terri Jimison, 5320 Hollow Lane, Greenwood, CA 95635….or go to our website and click on the Membership tab. You can sign-up on line and pay via PayPal to be a member and/or just donate. It is greatly appreciated!

Come join us every Memorial Day weekend for the Annual Dru Barner Fun(d) Ride at the beautiful Dru Barner Campground and Equestrian Park just East of Georgetown.

Ride the Enchanted Forest for 5 miles, the 12-mile loop, or challenge yourself and your horse and head out on a 20-mile loop on the well-marked Rock Creek Trails. Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner, salads, and dessert at the park. We’ll be selling raffle tickets until dinner and GDETF T-shirts/sweatshirts throughout the day.

Overnight camping on Saturday is encouraged or check-in early Sunday morning. Check-in begins 3 p.m. on Saturday and again 7 a.m. Sunday morning. 20-milers need to be on the trail by 9 a.m. and 12-milers by 10 a.m. This is so our sweep riders have enough time to get back for dinner with us! 5-milers may ride the trail at their convenience. ALL riders need to be back in camp by 4:00 p.m. for the BBQ and raffle.

Prior reservations are appreciated for food prep and quicker check-in. We need to receive your entry form and payment by May 18 so food preparation can begin! There is limited trailer parking so get your reservations in early before the cut-off point.  This event is very popular and fills up – DO NOT count on being a walk-in ride morning without a reservation.

Lots of wonderful raffle prizes

If you do not plan on riding this event, please consider volunteering to help out. There are many jobs to be done to put on such a successful event, and it’s a great group to work with.

If you have any other questions or would like to volunteer, please contact us.
