This sounds cool.
For the sixth year SmartPak is sponsoring a free Rolex course walk.
Attendees will get the opportunity to see the course through the eyes of 2 of the country’s top event riders; Allison Sprenger and Amy Tryon. Allison will be riding Arthur and Amy has two mounts: Leyland and Coal Creek. The two will lead a guided tour through the perils of the most challenging cross country course in the U.S., offering their tips and tactics along the way. Everyone is welcome to attend this incredible opportunity and attendees are encouraged to participate and ask questions along the way.
Wish I could go!
Sign up here. It’s free.
