April  26-28
PPWHANC Trail Ride / Host: Linda Sauls @ H. Cooper Black Memorial Field Trial Grounds, 279 Sporting Dog Trail, Cheraw, SC. For reservations call 1-843-378-1555 or 1-800-345-7275. For camping and/or stall prices, you will have to check with these numbers for that information.
Arrrive on Friday, April 26, Ride on your own. Trails are marked and maps are available at the office.
Saturday, April 27, Ride out at 10 AM. Pack a snack or lunch to eat on the trail. Saturday night dinner will be at Linda Sauls’ trailer (campsite 18). A meal with main course will be prepared — club members should bring a side dish or dessert to share plus bring your own beverage and chair.
Sunday, April 28, 9:30 AM — short devotion followed by a short trail ride before leaving for home.
Due to the popularity of H. Cooper Black, it is advisable to make your reservations soon or there might not be any campsites available. As of this writing, there are 14 spots with hookups and a lot of primitive campsites.  In case of cancellations, they do not refund; but they will transfer to another date at a charge of $10. Dogs are allowed at campsite but not out on the trails during field trial events  — there is a field trial event on 4/26-28.
The trails are unbelievably dry even though we have had a lot of rain. Beautiful trails — a cross between Southern Pines and  Hoffman. BE AWARE of the laws concerning crossing state lines with your horses. We often ignore these laws but there is a risk that you could get checked for proper paperwork at any place in any state. The fines are stiff for not complying — just be sure to be safe in regard to this.
