Upcoming Events

Fall Event

 Upcoming Somerset Bridle Path Trail Association Ride at Schiff Natural Lands Trust in Mendham will be held in the summer!  Look for more details soon.

Date:  TBD

Time: TBD

We are working on a summer trail ride!  Details will be forthcoming. We hope to be riding along Schiff's 760 acres of old carriage trails.  The pace will be determined by the skill set of the group.  The ride is limited to a maximum of eight riders. 

We only ask that you join Schiff for an individual membership of $25.00 or make a donation to them. We are working with Schiff to determine a good date for them.

Normally, it is very difficult to park a horse trailer at Schiff, For these events, we have been granted special permission to park within the preserve.
