WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN AN EXCEPTION TO ALLOW FOR ACCESS TO THE CAMP AREA. IN CASE YOU MISSED THE BEST PART. THERE ARE NO MOTORIZED VEHICLES ALLOWED IN THE AREA OF THE RIDE: THAT MEANS NO MOTORCYCLES OR QUADS BUZZING AROUND. IT ALSO MEANS A LOT MORE WORK FOR US. WE WILL BE MARKING TRAIL STRICTLY ON FOOT AND HORSEBACK AND ALL WATER WILL BE IN
NATURAL LOCATIONS. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THROUGH THE GENEROSITY OF SEVERAL LOCAL RANCHERS, WE WILL HAVE LOTS OF WATER AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE RIDE. IT IS THE CONSIDERATION OF ANOTHER LOCAL LAND OWNER THAT WE WERE ABLE TO GET YOU IN TO SOME REALLY GREAT AREAS. THIS IS A GREAT TIME OF YEAR TO SEE THE DEER, ANTELOPE AND WILD HORSE HERDS. DEPENDING ON HOW THE WINTER GOES THERE CAN BE LOTS OF GRASS COMING IN

As a participant in the Rides of March, I agree to abide by the rules of AERC and the aforementioned ride.

I agree to take full responsibility for myself and the animal I am riding.
