The 2011 Virginia Trail Riders Association Competition will be held this year at The Homestead Resort, Hot Springs, Virginia, April 11- 14th. Put it on your calendar! Take the time off from work to be a part of the tradition! Riders from all over the east coast have enjoyed this ride for more than 50 years. Your fit hunting horse will be ready for a change of venue. If you have never been you have to the area, it’s full of mountain trout streams, old growth forests, and farmland as far as the eye can see. While the 100 mile ride offers the best scenery, there is something for everyone. This year there are some new incentives. There are some new trails and minimal pavement. You have a choice of 4 categories in which to register to ride. There is a 3-day 100 mile and a 3-day 50 mile competition. Another option is a 2-day 30 mile competition and finally, a 2-day pleasure ride. The Homestead Resort has graciously offered 3 different rates for lodging, all of which comes with a free donut and coffee.
