May packing clinic follow up

April 19, 2019

The pack clinic went very well at Saddle Up Arena – we had 19 participants from all around the state, most of them who weren’t members of BCHA before. Thank you so much to all the BCHA members who participated and helped out on that day.

We are doing a follow up ride on Saturday, May 4th for those who participated in the clinic to practice packing on their own (or friends’) horses. We would also like to invite other BCHA members to come for a potluck brunch and meeting starting at 10am followed by a trail ride. We will start at Saddle Up Arena (mile 10 Old Glenn Highway) and be able to ride down to Knik River from there.
