Ice Bear Cabalgata in Lower Franconia

On January 4 the first PFAE event of the year 2014 took place. The 2nd Ice Bear Trailride was hosted at Zykloopenhof in the little town of Mainbernheim/Lower Franconia in Germany. A Cabalgata through the wintry countryside with lunch around a campfire. Seventeed brave horses and their riders (some even in Ice Bear costumes) completed the 12 km ride. Like in the previous year we had a lunchbreak with hot beverages and a camp fire to warm up. Back at the farm we could welcome many guests for the folowing barbecue. This year we even had a raffle.
The Ice Bear Trailride can be described in only a few words: perfect weather, ethusiastic riders, wonderful guests and a lot of fun! Visit for more photographs and a longer report.
