Dru Barner Weekend Extravaganza 2020

May 23-24, 2020

 

Regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we are following all state guidelines as they develop and will plan things accordingly. For now, we are moving forward but, of course, everyone’s money will be refunded if we have to cancel the ride at the last minute.

 
Come join us at the beautiful DRU BARNER CAMPGROUND just east of Georgetown for an equestrian weekend extravaganza filled with camping, riding, great food, evening entertainment, more riding, more food, raffle prizes and fun!!!

This event will include our traditional trail rides on Saturday and a morning of equestrian games on Sunday.

Weekend Activities

SATURDAY: TRAIL RIDES – Ride the 5-mile Enchanted Forest, 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 (See Event Logistics). Afterwards, we’ll enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner together and announce the raffle and silent auction winners. Then, grab your chair and favorite cocktail and meet back at the picnic area for a group campfire and an evening of DJ music, dancing, singing, and of course bring the fixings for s’mores.

SUNDAY: GDETF EQUESTRIAN GAMES – Start the morning out with us for tea, coffee, and a hearty breakfast. Then, saddle up your horses and meander out on the 5-mile Enchanted Forest trail to play games with your horse and collect winning points. Return back to camp for a yummy Mexican lunch at which time the winning prizes will be announced. You must be present to take home your prizes.
