TRAIL QUEST 2018 - Big Changes! Please Read!

Congratulations to all who have participated in Trail Quest during the past five years! It was not an easy task to complete the Quest, but many of you did. We hope we opened your eyes to the large number of wonderful horse trails Wisconsin riders enjoy.

Trail Quest will be changing for 2018....we have made markers, (see photo) that will be placed on Wisconsin's horse trails for the summer of 2018.  All you have to do is pick up the marker you find while trail riding. You then bring it to the Wisconsin Horse Council Trails booth at the 2019 Midwest Horse Fair to exchange the marker for a gift.

RULES: You must be a member of the Wisconsin Horse Council to be eligible, and you must be available to pick up your award at the Midwest Horse Fair April 2019.

Easy enough? We hope that you enjoy the hunt for the markers. Good luck to you all!

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kricket Jewett kricketj@gmail.com.
