The ApHC 2001 Trail Rides
Moscow, ID - History, adventure, and awe-inspiring scenery await those who partake in an Appaloosa Horse Club trail ride. Each ride will offer adventure in the great outdoors, delicious catered food, live entertainment, and the opportunity to meet people with similar interests. In 2001, the ApHC will be hosting three trail rides: Apache Land, Chief Joseph, and Daniel Boone (Sheltowee).
Apache Land Trail Ride. The 18th annual Apache Land Trail Ride is scheduled to take place April 22-28 on the Chihenne Ranch in Winston, N.M. The ranch is a working cattle and horse ranch not far from old gold and silver mines and Indian ruins. This is a base camp ride with great trails and beautiful scenery. Come see N.M. in all it's spring glory! The ApHC provides all meals beginning with dinner on the 22nd and ending with breakfast on the 28th. Horse feed must be provided by the rider. As always, a physician, veterinarian and farrier will be available. You are not required to ride an Appaloosa on this ride, all breeds are welcome to attend. The application deadline is April 6, 2001 and the fees are as follows: ApHC Members--$280 for riders and $230 for non-riders; Non-Members--$305 for riders and $230 for non-riders; Youth (12-18)--$230 for riders and $205 for non-riders.
Chief Joseph Trail Ride. The Chief Joseph Trail Ride retraces, as closely as possible, the path the Nez Perce and their Appaloosas took during their flight from the U.S. Cavalry in 1877. The Chief Joseph Trail Ride is the most prestigious trail ride of its type in the U.S. today. The 2001 ride marks the thirty-seventh year and the eleventh year of the third time through the entire trail. The date for this year's ride will be July 22 - 28. The ride is a progressive system, which means the camp will move each day. The ride will begin in Clark, WY and end in Laurel, MT. As always, all meals and beverages are provided, as well as horse feed. There will be a physician, veterinarian and farrier available both in.
The ApHC, located in Moscow, ID, is the international breed registry for Appaloosa horses.
