Lori & Nica’s Outback Adventure Trip

Lori and Nica invite you to join them for their 4 day/3 night outback adventure trip exploring the trails in southern Virginia! Enjoy a hands on primitive camping trip through the backcountry of Virginia, bonding with your horse with 4 days of riding. Relax in the evenings with a campfire under the stars!

This is a very primitive, high adventure pack trip with hands on participation. All participants are encouraged to get involved in every aspect of the trip, from tacking/untacking horses, gathering wood and preparing meals. Explore trails, from narrow paths through hardwoods and pines, to creeks and rolling hillsides. Sit out under the stars and get to know your wranglers and fellow campers while stargazing. A sure to be unforgettable experience!

*Please note that this is a primitive camping experience and amenities will be limited. No previous riding experience needed, however, participants need to be physically fit for spending long hours in the saddle. You may bring your own tent if you wish. Participants 18 and over only please.
