Welcome to our Delaware County Chapter! Our group of friendly and fun-loving horse enthusiasts represent a variety of riding and driving disciplines and breed of horse, including mules. In addition to trail riding, our members have the opportunity to participate in a variety of social activities with like-minded horse lovers. For instance, our members have enjoyed educational programs by professionals from a wide variety of equine-related fields, participated in horsemanship clinics, toured horse-related businesses, appeared in Delaware’s All Horse Parade and taken group trips to the Equine Affaire and The Wilds. Our chapter also hosts “Autumn At Alum”, a yearly fall trail ride and potluck. It is not necessary for any of our members to own a horse in order to partake in the fun and camaraderie!
We are most proud of the fact that our members donate over 2000 volunteer hours each year to the maintenance and improvement of the bridle trails at our ‘adopted park’, Alum Creek State Park. Demonstrating the OHC motto of “Horsemen helping Horsemen”, our chapter volunteers work diligently throughout the year clearing trails, establishing new re-routes, building and maintaining platforms, cleaning the campground and more, all with the goal of providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all horseback riding visitors. In total, our chapter is responsible for the care of 40 miles of bridle trails consisting of Winterhawk West, Winterhawk East, Hunter’s Hollow and Maple Glen, including the Flats.
In addition to our stewardship of the Alum Creek bridle trails, we also serve our community by performing volunteer service activities such as litter pickup along our Adopt-A-Highway mile of SR 36/37.
