During Labor Day weekend Green Mountain Horse Association (GMHA) hosted its 77th Annual Distance Days. Competitive Trails rides of 100, 60 and 40 miles in length. The trails, which run through Reading are considered by some to be extremely technically challenging. The trail has been re-routed since the Taftsville Bridge Repairs began but will mostly likely go back to the old trail system for 2014. Twelve-100 mile riders, four-60 mile riders and four-40-mile riders registered for the weekend. GMHA also hosted 15-mile and 10-mile rides and a Pleasure Ride.
