Join Us To Explore, Learn, Socialize & Have Fun
In an effort to offer even more adventure and fun to our members and friends, LWSC has started organizing field trips.
Field trips can include exploring interesting places, learning something about the equestrian environment around us, giving back through service to our equestrian community or just doing something wacky and fun. Most importantly, field trips are an opportunity to socialize with other members and make new friends.
