A Little Bit About Us
We are excited to announce the formation of a new horse club in our area. Emphasis will be on social activities, such as trail rides, camping and potlucks.
We will also assist the Department of Natural Resources with projects in the Southern Kettle Moraine Forest as needs arise.
Your ideas and suggestions are welcomed and encouraged.

May - 17: TREASURE HUNT OPENS TRAIL GROUP’S SUMMER SEASON
PALMYRA – Sue and Gary Press, board members of Southern Kettle Moraine Horse Trail Association, will again host the group’s first ride of the season, a treasure hunt, on Saturday, May 17, at Horseriders Campground, just south of Palmyra.
They will provide clues to help riders find letters placed along the trail, which teams or individual riders will need to form a phrase.
“A hint will be available to help unscramble the letters to complete that phrase,” Sue Press said, adding that maps of the treasure hunt route will be available at the campground pavilion around 10 a.m. that day.
“Prizes will be awarded to those members with the most letters and completed phrase” just before a 2 p.m. potluck, she said.
Participants should bring a dish to share and their own beverages. Utensils and plates will be provided. A current negative Coggins test is required for all horses ridden at SKMHTA events.
New trail maps, which SKMHTA member helped produce, are posted at the trailheads and are available for viewing or downloading on the club’s website (see above right).
Further information about the May 17 event is available from Sue or Gary Press, 262-495-8611.
“All horse lovers are welcome to
join our events”, said Barclay Wallace, SKMHTA’s president. “If you choose
to become a member, the membership fee is $10 per family.”
