New Trail Head Directions


All horses should have an ID tag with your last name and cell phone number. You could use a regular ID dog tag on the bridle, or halter bridle. I use a mare collar, like a dog collar, which has a small brass plate with my last name and cell #. They make these collars at the Tack Shack.

IF your horse ever gets loose, call:
Doug Shearer- (352) 816-2353 with the Greenway Equestrians

Greenway Office- (353) 236-7143
and of course, 911

Safety Tips

​The members of Sun Country are fortunate to have have been invited to two trail riding events on Saturday October 28th. Choose the ride that you prefer, but remember to RSVP your intention to participate. Both invitations include offers to eat with and meet members of other local riding clubs! So,here goes.....

We have been asked to join with the Altoona Trail Riders at the Trail Head Ranch out in the Ocala National Forest.
As you know we are planning a joint ride on Oct. 28 and welcome SCTB to the Trailhead Ranch. We have been in the woods clearing the trails as we have many downed trees. Everyone is in the same boat. In the Ocala Forest we have a unique problem in that many areas are so packed with trees that you cannot go around a blocked tree as in other riding locales. So, with a lot of hard work we hope to have a nice ride planned for all, with “Riders Up” scheduled for 10 AM.

Trailhead Ranch is owned by Linda and Jerry Harrington and they are always so gracious to allow us to hold events there. There is a large field for parking of trailers and a full bath in the shop. There are hoses for watering and washing horses.

Mrs. Harrington is going to provide lunch for all the riders. She is a fabulous cook and hostess and I am sure all the riders will be pleased with what she has planned. Because of this, she will need an RSVP from anyone who plans on attending this ride. She wants to make sure she has plenty prepared. So, please pass on to all the they will need to RSVP to trailheadranch@gmail.com. And the sooner the better.

The address of Trailhead Ranch is 27435 SE Highway 42, Umatilla, FL 32784. It is approximately 5 miles further on down Hwy 42 from where you turned to go to Sawgrass last year. Stay on 42 and the long driveway will be on the left hand side. There is a green and white sign on the highway indicating Trailhead Ranch.

The theme of the ride will be Fall/Autumn, so Fall colors would be appropriate. So riders can feel free to decorate themselves or their horses if they wish.
Looking forward to seeing a large crowd at this ride. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Regards,
Karen Pando
President, Altoona Trail Riders

Sun Country has also been invited to an event being held by Triple B (the oldest equestrian club in Florida). This ride will taking place at the Shangi-La trail head might be better suited for those members not wanting to travel a longer distance.

Triple B Riding Club
Both rides should be a day of fun and a chance to meet and make new friends. Please RSVP ASAP so that both groups may plan meals accordingly. Have a great time and enjoy the opportunity of these gracious invitations!
