McCONNELSVILLE, Ohio — It’s time to “Giddy up.” The 14th annual AEP Employee and Retiree Trail Ride at AEP’s ReCreation Land Equine Activity Area will take place Aug. 20 and 21 at the site located about seven miles north of McConnelsville, off State Route 78. Participants must bring their own horse.

The ride kicks off at 10 a.m. Riders should pack a trail lunch. A potluck dinner is scheduled Saturday night with meat for grilling provided by AEP.

AEP employees, retirees and family members enjoy a recent trail ride at AEP's ReCreation Land Equine Activity Area. Shown above is Troy Lindimore, husband of Anne Lindimore of the Muskingum River Plant.

Anne Lindimore, administrative associate at the Muskingum River Plant, coordinates the outing.

“This is a really fun event open to all AEP employees and retirees,” said Lindimore. “This is a beautiful area with well-maintained trails and friendly people.”

Approximately 30 miles of trails are available to riders. Many are well shaded and hilly with shallow creek crossings, said Lindimore. The trails were developed and are maintained in a partnership between AEP and the Ohio Horseman’s Council.

Free camping, firewood and horse water is provided. No electricity is available at the campsite, but there are portable toilets and the area has tie lines and picnic tables. The trailhead staging area can accommodate 100 horse trailers.

A permit is required to use the Equine Activity Area, which is open to the public, and is available online at AEP.com.

For more information, contact Lindimore at (audinet) 273-3487, (direct dial) 740-984-3487, or aylindimore@aep.com.
