HOPE’s brand new Orlandini Obstacle Course broke ground in 2023 and will open in the Spring of 2024 with a Leaving Hoofprints Trail Challenge Buckle Series!  The obstacle course will features over 30 obstacles including a high bridge, balance beams, a trench, several moving bridges, and water obstacles. Our Trail Riding Challenge Buckle Series begins January 1, 2024! Kick off the New Year in the saddle!  

The obstacles are built to the Premier Mount N Trail Association (PMT) standards, which require the obstacles to be constructed in such a manner to protect the safety of both the horse and rider of any size. Most obstacles contain 3 levels of difficulty so there is always a challenge for riders of all experience levels!

Obstacles are built such that the horse may either be led or rode through each obstacle and there are no limits on breeds, ages, abilities, or disciplines.  Riders are allowed to compete in any type of tack - roping, barrel, jumping, dressage, endurance, etc. - so long as the tack is well fitting and meets the rules set forth by the PMT.

Ride for a Reason

HOPE offers three 10 week, 40-hour, youth and adult equine assisted personal growth program focused on building life skills through the study of horse behavior and natural horsemanship per year. Veterans, 1st Responders, their families and Kids in Care participate at NO COST to them!  In addition we offer partial scholarship to other families in need. We are able to do this thanks to the Orlandini Foundation, our Sponsors & Volunteers!  A donation is made from every challenge to help keep these programs FREE to participants!  Thank you for your support!
