The Trial will feature a variety of obstacles scattered around the park. The ride length will be approximately eight miles with eight to 10 obstacles. Performance of each horse and rider team will be monitored by a trail judge and scored on a point system.

The entry fee will be $30 for adults, $20 for children 16 and under. Helmets will be required for junior riders. There will be awards for all participants.

The money raised by the Trial will be used for improvements to the equestrian area of Washoe Lake State Park. The second Trail Trial is Sept. 25. The proceeds from that trial will be used by Nevada All State Trail Riders for local backcountry trail projects.

For entry forms and information, call Beth Kauffmann at 849-9271.
