Glenhaven Farm Trail Series
October 24, 2020 - October 25, 2020
About The Venue
Glenhaven Farms, owned by Cary and Barbara Gaynor, is proud to be hosting its first Silver Buckle Series. Located in S.Salem about one hour south of Portland on 67 acres of rolling forest and pastureland with some beautiful views across the Willamette Valley. We are 20 minutes from I-5 and directions are easy. If the weather becomes a problem, we have a 60×200 indoor arena.
We are providing a ‘ Welcome’ continental breakfast at sign in. All entrants are put into a drawing for several “door” prizes. Parking will be on our hay field. There are limited stalls available and 6 guest paddocks (three with shelters). Be sure to reserve ahead.
We have come up with several new obstacles to challenge you.
You will need to bring portable corrals or plan to hi-line or tie to your trailer. Please be courteous and do not allow your horses to dig up our field. Corrals must be moved daily to avoid wear on our field. Water is available at the barn and paddocks.
These are Events #7, #8, and #9 and conclude the Glenhaven Silver Buckle Series.
Saturday will start with the In-Hand obstacle course to be followed after a 45 minute break by a ridden Obstacle Challenge. Both events will be held in the field behind the barn.
Sunday will be a 3 mile Obstacle Trail Challenge with 8 obstacles.
The terrain is mostly gentle to rolling hills. The trails are dirt but there are occasional rocks. Horses with tender feet may want to wear shoes or boots.
Saturday morning will start with pastries and beverages hosted by Glenhaven Farms. Lunches are on you. There will be a Saturday Night POT LUCK so please bring a dish to share. We will be grilling burgers.
Sunday morning pastries and beverage will be available for $4
