East Meets West Equestrian Pilgrimage and Challenge
(April 24-25, 2004) Shire of Midhaven (Mt. Vernon, WA)


“When April with his sweet showers has pierced the drought of March to the root;
Then people long to go on pilgrimages and palmers long to seek
strange shores and far off shrines known in various lands.”
Excerpted from “The Prologue” Canterbury Tales by Chaucer

An equestrian event for the whole family! The pilgrimage is a 1 1/2 hour guided trail ride in which you will learn the perils of the roads and visit roadside “shrines” of various cultures along the way.

Bring a lunch, picnic area available for before or after your pilgrimage.
