7th Annual Liberty Ride - September 15, 2018 CANCELLED FOR 2018, PARTICIPANTS WILL RECEIVE REFUNDS
The Liberty Ride is a fundraiser for the Orange County Parks & Recreation Foundation, a 501(c)3 Organization whose mission is to help support the future of Orange County Parks & Recreation.  The ride is organized by Orange County Parks & Recreation and Oakland Heights Farm.  It is graciously hosted by James Madison’s Montpelier.  Generous support for this ride is provided by the Virginia Horse Council and Virginia Horse Industry Board.  Riders must bring their own horse.  The length of the ride is between 7 and 10 miles round-trip (route may change based on weather and trail conditions), and the terrain is pasture land, wooded trails, gravel roads, and some paved roads.  Pre-registration is highly encouraged. Registrations received after 8/31/18 will have a $10 late registration fee added and cannot be guaranteed lunch or a door prize.  It is highly recommended that registrations are submitted well in advance of the date since there is a limit to the number of riders who can participate.  Want to ride?
