AERC/WDRA 50 & LD Rides
Ellen Hensley and other Southern Utah Endurance Riders, including Ann and Dave Nicholson have wanted to bring back the Color Country ride which was one of the oldest AERC endurance rides, dating back to the time when AERC was founded. Originally managed by Don Gallion, one of the first AERC Board members, it was passed on to Marion Parker, who with her daughters and family managed it for many years. As the town of Hurricane and St George grew the ride camp was moved further and further south. When trying to re-establish the event we found that once again we must move south to avoid the rapidly growing town as well as to avoid the extensive off highway vehicle use in the old camping areas.
As we work on the ride during the coming year we will post more information as time goes on.
