Please email GDETF2@gmail.com to get on a wait list if we have cancellations.

Come join us at the beautiful Dru Barner Equestrian campground just east of Georgetown for an equestrian WEEKEND extravaganza filled with riding, great food, more riding, more food, prizes and fun!!! This event will include our traditional trail rides on Saturday and Equestrian games on Sunday. Sign up for the entire weekend or just one day. Room is limited so please don’t wait.

Arrive Friday and camp overnight so you’re bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for Saturday morning’s 5, 12, or 20 mile trail rides. Check-in begins 3 p.m. until dark on Friday, Saturday morning 7-9 a.m. and Sunday morning 7-9 a.m.

Weekend Activities

SATURDAY: TRAIL RIDES – Ride the 5-mile Enchanted Forest, the 12-mile loop, or challenge yourself and your horse on a 20-mile loop on the well-marked Rock Creek Trails. Please plan accordingly to give yourself enough time to check-in, saddle-up, and hit the trail by the appropriate time, especially if you are arriving Saturday morning. If you are late, you might be redirected to a shorter trail so you are not behind the sweep/drag riders 🙂

  • The 20-milers need to be on the trail between 8 and  9 a.m.
  • 12-milers need to be on the trail between 8 and 10 a.m.
  • 5-milers may ride the trail at their convenience any time after 8 a.m. as long as you are back by 4:00 for the BBQ.

All riders need to be back in camp by 4:00 p.m. for the BBQ (meal ticket #1).  We’ll enjoy a delicious BBQ dinner, salads and dessert.

SUNDAY: GDETF EQUESTRIAN GAMES – Join us between 8-9 a.m. for coffee, tea, eggs, pancakes, and sausage breakfast (meal ticket #2). Then, saddle up your horses and head out on the 5-mile Enchanted Forest trail for GDETF Equestrian Games! Everyone meanders out anytime between 10 and 11 a.m., making several stops along the way to play games and contests. Winners will be selected while we enjoy a yummy Mexican lunch (meal ticket #3) between 2 and 3 p.m. You must be present to take home your prize.
