Perry County Chapter OHC has a motto: “Until next time……… keep 4 hooves down, the leather clean and your seat in the saddle.” This SE Ohio group of riders have adopted responsibility for Wayne National Forest’s Stone Church and Burr Oak State Park bridle trails. When we’re not working on trails, we’re riding them from Salt Fork to Burr Oak and everywhere a hoof can be put down.
Trail riding & Trail maintenance
We are an avid riding club that also does its fair share of trail maintenance. Stay tuned for the work dates at Stone Church and Burr Oak. The state is adding new trails and amenities at Burr Oak, while we are still working with Wayne National for additional trails at both Burr Oak and Stone Church.
Our ride schedule for 2023 is listed below and includes rides with our neighboring OHC chapters. After all, it is horsemen helping horsemen!
We will host our annual Soup Ride October 6-8 at Burr Oak where we will offer FREE camping this year. We will replace the auction with some other events. Come see what’s new!
Guest speakers so far this year exercises for equestrians and a demonstration of the Bemer horse therapy.
Feel free to contact us for information about our next meeting, ride or get together! You can also check us out on Facebook.
We meet the second Tuesday of each month unless otherwise noted at the Pizza Place in New Lexington. Social time begins around 6 with the meeting to start at 7.
