Glenhaven Farm Trail Series

August 15, 2020 - August 16, 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.

Event Details
