Our January FTX will combine all of our past navigation training.


Skills needed

Orient a map to north

Determine compass course from A to B using compass and topo

Determine position by GPS

Navigate from A to B using compass and/or GPS coordinates

Draw your own map

Figure out how to get back to BC


Inventory of your emergency gear and medical supplies


Equipment needed


No horses, this is not a mounted exercise.  Bring all the gear that you normally carry on your horse except for tack. 


Location: TBD

Date: 1/17/15

Time: 1800

Duration:  2 hours


Yes, that is 6:00PM.  Navigation skills are truly tested when it is dark.  Everything is different when you lose the light and gets further complicated by the cold.  We’ll practice without horses and at a later date we will ride home in the dark. 


A separate informal ride will be scheduled in January.  This ride should not be your first time out in a while.  It will be long so you and your horse should be in decent shape.


Everybody have a safe and happy holiday,
