W: Chalk Rock

Chalk Rock Ride: June 7 and 8, 2014
The Redwood Empire Endurance Riders (REER) invite you to join us at this year’s Chalk Rock Endurance Ride.

For nearly 35 years, the Barnwell Family has graciously allowed Redwood Empire Endurance Riders to host our Chalk Rock Endurance Ride at their beautiful private ranch. Established in 1884, the ranch is a model for timber harvest practices recognized by state and federal agencies. It is also a working cattle ranch. Riders love the stunning panoramic views as they ride through meadows and around the beautiful Chalk Mountain itself.

A two-day this year, Chalk Rock will have an LD and a 50-miler on both days. Hoof protection will be required. The ride camp atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, and the focus lies with maintaining happy, healthy horses and having fun amongst good company. This year's ride will integrate the newly pioneered trails on last year's 2013 ride. Trails are primarily on both maintained, and older/unmaintained/softer footing logging roads.

RIDE CAMP: Ridecamp offers a bi-level grassy meadow bordered with redwood trees and a creek. Horse water will be troughed from the creek. Please bring your own drinking water.

DIRECTIONS: From Highway 101, take the Highway 36 exit just south of Fortuna. Continue east on 36 for about 30 miles to the bridge at Bridgeville. Turn right at the end of the bridge; you'll be heading for Blocksburg. Follow signs about 2 miles until you see a marked pipe and wire gate on the right side of the road. Turn right into camp.

From I-5, take Highway 36 from Red Bluff to Bridgeville and turn left at the bridge; then follow the above directions. If you're unfamiliar with Highway 36, turn up your trailer brakes before heading down McClellan Mountain into Bridgeville and USE LOW GEAR.

RIDE RULES: The Chalk Rock Endurance Ride will comply with all AERC, REER & State of California Rules and Regulations. All equines must have some type of hoof protection to enter the rides. Dogs are welcome in camp, but must leashed at all times.

FOOD: A ride dinner is included in each entry. Extra dinner tickets are available on the entry form.

ENTRY FORM NOTES: Download adult and junior rider entry forms here or at the foot of this page. Limited Distance and 50-miler riders must show proof of current AERC membership or pay a $15 non-member fee. Checks are cashed as they are received.
