The Liberty Ride is a fundraiser for the Orange County Parks & Recreation Foundation, a 501(c)3 Organization whose mission is to help support the future of Orange County Parks & Recreation. The ride is organized by Orange County Parks & Recreation and Oakland Heights Farm. It is graciously hosted by James Madison’s Montpelier. Generous support for this ride is provided by the Virginia Horse Council and Virginia Horse Industry Board. Riders must bring their own horse. The length of the ride is between 7 and 10 miles round-trip (route may change based on weather and trail conditions), and the terrain is pasture land, wooded trails, gravel roads, and some paved roads. Pre-registration is highly encouraged. Registrations received after 9/6/19 will have a $10 late registration fee added and cannot be guaranteed lunch.
Pre-registration is highly encouraged. Registrations received after 9/6/19 will have a $10 late registration fee added and cannot be guaranteed lunch. It is highly recommended that registrations are submitted in advance of the date since there is a limit to the number of riders who can participate. Registration submissions should include the registration form, payment, and a copy of the Coggins report for each horse that will be participating. We will keep the Coggins report for our files, so participants are reminded not to submit their only copy. Participants should also bring a copy of their horse’s negative Coggins report(s) to keep on their person throughout the event.
