THE FARM, FOOD, LODGING & STABLING:
Centaur Ranch is located 11954 Woodview Trail, Gaylord, MI 49735. Its a 22 acre farm located in one of the highest spots of the the lower peninsula in beautiful northern MI. We have a 90 meter straight track with 30 meters of run on and run off. There are outdoor electric paddocks for each horse for overnight stabling. Water hose is within close reach to all paddocks.
There is plenty of parking for trucks and trailers, but please try to consolidate by sharing trailer space to haul here and consider sharing a horse.
Camping is welcomed and preferred! To create an inclusive community feeling, all are welcome to stay on property all weekend. So much easier to not have to go anywhere. There will be 2 porta-potties and 2 out door private showers available to use. If you need a hotel or some more modern accommodations; I will provide a list of nearby places. If you are from another state and flying in for this event, and would like to camp, we will find you a tent and sleeping stuff. There will be a bonfire pit for nighttime festivities. Please bring a chair for yourself!! We have a bunch but not enough.
Meals, water, coffee and snacks will be provided on Saturday and Sunday (no dinner Sunday). We will try our best to make you happy with food but if you need something special, please bring it for yourself. The food will be mostly veggies from the garden and organic grass fed beef from Cross W Farm, and of course we will have some other goodies and snacks to satisfy your hunger. Friday dinner will be potluck style. Please bring a dish to pass if you'd like to participate.
Please bring a reusable water bottle for the weekend. We recycle and compost everything! We will have bins for your convenience. Please leave no trace as much as possible.
