I have visited several websites recently and noticed some questions about the Virginia Preservation Trail Ride on September 6, 2008.
One of the questions that was frequently asked was about the sponsorship that is included with the registration. The sponsorship is meant to be similar to a walk-a-thon that you would collect sponsorships from friends, family and co-workers, not pay it yourself, unless you wish to do that.
Another forum had a post that asked "Why would I pay to ride here when I can pay to ride on 5,000 acres for $60 in two weeks". I am unclear what ride they were referring to, however, I can tell you that this is more than a trial ride. This is an opportunity to raise funds for fighting to save the trails. Everything we do at UFWDA is to save the sport so that you have the option of the trail ride in two weeks or the Virginia Preservation Trail Ride or whatever it is that you are interested in in the off road arena.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to post them here.
Thanks and I hope to see you in Crozet!
