Winter at Island 22

Posted on October 24, 2011 at 4:25 PM

Well it is almost November.

The gate house at Island 22 is still open but only for another week or two. If you do go down it is only $10 per horse trailer and it doesn't matter how many horses your trailer holds - 2 or 20 - it is a flat rate of $10 considered a parking fee now. All other vehicles must pay 5$ parking fee as well.

Park in the front parking area only please!!

Pay with cash at the gate house.

Once the gate house is closed it is free to ride but please be aware that all damage to rings and jumps is paid for by the Society and done by volunteers.

 

Currently the courses are still all set up but only for another week or two. Heinrich hurt his back slightly and sitting in a tractor for many hours to move jumps was not on his wish list. He is feeling better though and he and Rolf should be out there pretty soon to move a majority of the cross country jumps off the course. They will leave a handful around the water jump and one or two on the plateau where they can get a decent amount of sun. Rot is our worst enemy.

 

The footing is very good but there are some muddy spots due to tons of rain. Use your helmet covered noggin when galloping out there.

It is still quite good for buggies.

 

The water jump is PERFECT for everyone right now. It will fluctuate in depth weekly but it is pretty much perfect depth at the moment.

 

All three rings have 100% perfect footing. Cant get any better in an outdoor. The front ring at the front parking area contains 10 jumps in it with poles and cups donated by the Society and the Mt. Cheam PC. Please be nice to them and leave them in the ring for other users.

DO NOT DRAG THEM ON TO THE COURSE!!

Thank you.

 

The Year 2012 is our 25th Anniversary!!
