Trail Riding Guidelines
The purpose of this document is to provide suggested guidelines for members of the Frida Icelandic Riding Club (FIRC) when organizing and when participating in trail rides. The FIRC would like to encourage members to organize rides for club members in the different regions of the club's five-state area. The FIRC also encourages members to invite club members to join rides sponsored by riding organizations in their areas. The FIRC wants rides to be as enjoyable and as safe as possible for club members. The guidelines suggest ways to accomplish this.
