Looking to make connections with other Standie trail riders/drivers. I am a trail rider in central-southwest New Hampshire. Member Granite State Carriage Assn, Monadnock Happy Trails, and SPHO-Maine / New England Standardbred Awards.

I don't care what you call them they are great horses! I am located in Western Mass. Where do we want to ride? Trailer parking is a big requirement for me because I am not that awesome at backing up a truck and trailer. I know an awesome place in Athol that just was placed into conservation/no development trust. It has amazing views and the woman who lives on the land was a rider herself and has maintained the trails pretty well. We could also do a state or national park.

I'm an hour and a half north of Athol. Had I known, I would have invited you to join us for a trail ride on the Ashuelot Rail Trail in Swanzey NH yesterday. It's about 1/2 way between me and Athol. Lots of parking. I'm not sure how far south one can ride it but it extends all the way to Hinsdale on the MA-NH border.

Oh this is so exciting all these standardbred people! Lets plan for a spring ride and figure out details. Not that riding in December and January isn't a boatload of fun with the snow and the cold temperates.

I have 2 in CT. If I could get there in a reasonable amount of time I would love to come in the spring 😊

I have requested information re: parking, trail conditions, and scheduled uses that might pose a conflict at Willard Brook State Park in Ashby MA on May 20th. No reply yet. I was told one can do a 6-8mi loop there but I'm awaiting confirmation on that.

Burt and Harry, if Ashby doesn't pan out, I can meet you in Athol.

I am down for Athol. I have a friend visiting but I am concerned about the call for thunderstorms on Sunday. Do we want to plan something for next weekend or the following.

I agree - the weather looks bad for tomorrow. Check out my ride calendar to see what's happening when. Maybe we can meet up on at a scheduled ride.

There's Northfield Mtn on June 9th (one-time $15 MHTA membership fee). I'm not available 6/16 or /24 but can sometimes do midweek if that's an option.
