As horsemen helping horsemen, we provide an opportunity for equine owners and supporters to share horse-related topics and activities through trail rides, campouts, social and service functions, and by the building and maintaining of bridle trails; we foster the love and understanding of horses for this generation and the next.
Each year we plan a variety of trail rides. Club members meet for day rides and enjoy weekend camping trips: Ohio’s state parks and forests are popular destinations. On most Saturday nights during camping weekends, members host renowned potluck dinners, with entertaining campfires to end the night.
Holmes OHC members donate hundreds of volunteer hours each year in support of bridle trails in Ohio’s parks and forests. Throughout riding season, work weekends are held at Mohican State Memorial Forest. Members clear and improve trails, clean up camp, replace tie rails, etc.
Each year, we raise funds to help maintain Mohican’s trails and camping facility. Our primary fundraiser is selling pizzas. We also host raffles and auctions at some of our events. If you’d like to donate to Mohican’s trail maintenance, contact us.
