Stephanie's top 10 reasons to ride the 75 @ Lead, Follow or Get Out of My Way!

McDowell Mt. Park, Fountain Hills Arizona, November 17, 2012.

10. Ride management needs at least 10 entries to offset extra time, cost and volunteers needed. 

9. Trail loops back to base camp for easy vet checks, making crews not necessary. 

8. Mobile phones work during 90% of the trail.

7. Trail is a true 75 miles. This way you will be able to accurately rate your horses performance for moving up to 100's.

6. McDowell Mt. Park has marked trails, with your map you should know where you are at all times. 

5. Safe, groomed trails for riding in the dark. 

4. Water stops every 8 – 10 miles.

3. If the unexpected happens there are vet hospitals within 45 min driving time. 

2. Point chasers this is the last ride of the season for the Southwest region and 75 points are calculated at 1.25 compared to a 50 which is calculated at 1. Example 1st place in a 50 is 150 points 1st place in a 75 is 281.25.

1. Just because you can!! Come on, get out and ride, really ride!!

If you don't want to ride the 75 keep in mind we have the 50, 30 and 12 mile fun ride available also.
