Kenai Peninsula Happenings

May 1, 2024

Much is happening on the Kenai Peninsula. Here’s a snapshot:

The KPBCH gets many questions about what is happening on the Peninsula and around the state. We’re honored to be a search engine for equestrian events! To help us all plan our summer riding season, we’ve put together a Statewide calendar with all the “universal” equestrian events (clinics, rides, camps, rodeos, etc.) that we could find on the internet. Each of those events are links to that organization’s page or the specific event page if we could find it. You can find that calendar at the top our our own Events Page on our website by using the button below. While you’re there, you’ll see that we’ve got some fun things happening as well!

  • Our Summer Trail Challenge began May 1! You can start any time logging your ridden miles and sending them in to win a prize!
  • May 19th we’ll be hosting April Cantrell with The White Horn Saddle Fitting to do a saddle fitting demo for us. You can find her information on our site and book an appointment with her as well.
  • Equine veterinarian, Dr Mike Beyer, has fit us into his busy schedule to speak with us about Equine Nutrition and Supplementation for Alaskan horses. This takes place Wednesday, May 22 at 6PM at the Soldotna Library. Come learn with us!
  • We’ll be doing a Trail Work Day on our Kasilof Equestrian Trails June 8 if you would like to explore the trails while making them ready to ride! We’ll be clearing downed trees and making ready for the mulcher to come through before the Fun Ride.
  • June 13 will be our Annual Fun Ride! Bring your horse, a friend (with a horse), a dish to share, and explore those freshly-cleared Kasilof Equestrian Trails! One of our stations will be at the NEW PARKING LOT! You read that right. IT’S HAPPENING! The equipment will be rolling in in August to finish the job. We’re SO CLOSE!
