We will split into different groups if needed. Bring water for your horse and clean up tools. Expect hikers, dog walkers and trains. Great footing on the flat tow path along the Potomac River, but shoes or boots may be needed for tender-footed horses. Planning on riding about 10 miles Brunswick to Harper’s Ferry at walk and slow gait but will shorten it if needed depending on condition of horses. We can also split up to accommodate all riders and horses. And don’t forget to wear your green and I bet we will have horses dressed in their green finest too!
