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.

Still hoping to trail ride with other STB owners. I've updated my ride calendar (see link in earlier post). Maybe we can meet up at an organized ride in 2019?
