f you aren’t familiar with the Oregon Horse Center National Mountain Trail Championships, be sure to take a look!

Scheduled this Nov. 7-9 in Eugene, Ore., the Mountain Trail competition is the brain- child of Major Defoe. Inspired by a Welsh Pony trail class in 2001 while watching ponies balk at a cut-out of a cow, Defoe held the first Mountain Trail Competition in 2002. Seventeen years later, there might be many other outdoor mountain trail courses, but none are as impressive and unique as the original Oregon Horse Center Indoor Mountain Trail National Championship Course. Built only once a year, it takes two weeks

for the arenas to undergo the transforma- tion. Two hundred tons of rocks and dirt are hauled in to transform the arena into the legendary “Championship Course”. Complete with ditches, ponds, logs, bridges, waterfalls, streams, trees, trails with rock switchbacks and even a 100-foot mural of the Three Sisters Mountains in the back- ground. The arena takes on a whole new spectacular atmosphere. The Oregon Horse Center National

Oregon Horse Center
