Fun Ride on October 13, 2012
Grab your hat, load your horse and meet fellow LEC members for a trail ride (and camp out if you wish) at Cane Camp in Kisatchie National Forest on October 13th . The official guided ride will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, but there will be more riding throughout the weekend with groups getting together to go out on their own.
If you have not joined or renewed your membership for 2012 do so today on www.laequinecouncil.com. This ride is free and only for LEC members.
Bring along a saddlebag lunch and drink for yourself. We will be stopping on the trail to enjoy our lunch, rest, and mingle with fellow equestrians. Bring your current coggins papers too.
Cane Camp is a primitive horse camp with improved restrooms. Water is convenient and there are poles to tie the horses (bring your own rope to make a highline). There are no R.V. hookups.
If camping overnight there is a $3.00 camping fee that you deposit at the site. There is also a $5.00 ride out fee for the Sand Stone Trail that is paid on the honor system if you ride that trail.
FROM ALEXANDRIA: Take the Derry/Cloutierville exit (Exit 119) on I-49. Go south 5 miles on LA 119 west. Turn west on Forest Hwy 59, which is the Longleaf Trail. Go about 13 miles and watch for the right turn after the pipeline right of way crosses the road. Cane Camp is on the north side of the road just after the pipeline crossing. There is a sign.
FROM LEESVILLE: go about 27 miles north from Leesville on Hwy 117 (Kurthwood Hwy) Turn right onto Longleaf Scenic Byway. Cane camp is about five miles down on the left.
Come join us for the day or for the weekend. Make a difference for the future of the horse industry in Louisiana while making new friends and enjoying our forest.
