Ellis River Riders Hosts ACTHA Ride (PHOTO)
On July 31, the Ellis River Riders hosted an American Competitive Trail Horse Association ride from their facility on Airport Road in Andover. It was approximately eight miles long along the club’s “Pink Trail.” Horses and riders were judged on how well they maneuvered six obstacles that ACTHA had assigned along the trail. ACTHA provided a judge at each obstacle.
Approximately 30 riders participated in the event and all enjoyed the beauty that the Andover trail system has to offer. There were also stalls and camping available the night before the ride for those traveling a distance to participate in the event. An all-you-can-eat breakfast and lunch buffet was provided including a chicken barbeque and many homemade pastries.
