Well everybody we are down to our last Gymkhana of the year on September the 14th with a 9:00am Start. We have had a wonderful turnout this year with riders, horses and our great volunteers. Hope to see everyone there for the next and last one of 2014! Remember you had to come to 4 of the 6 Gymkhanas on the same horse to qualify for Awards so if you only 3 you better be there.

Saddle Series Race will also be done on September 14th. Prizes will be handed out that day with the winner receiving a saddle!! It’s a really close race so make sure you come out and join in on the fun for you never know what can happen.

Wow!!!!! What a great first Gymkhana we had at the end of April. We had a turnout of 55 Riders and 57 Horses. Best ever as far as I can remember. Well it took us all a little off guard for the first event of the year but we will have that under control for the next one that’s for sure. We would like to thank all of our Volunteers that came out that day and helped your executive team put on a great day. Thank you!!!!!
What’s Coming Up
June 1st – Gymkhana with a 9:00am start. To make things go faster remember that you can fill in the Gymkhana Forms on line, print and bring in. This saves you a lot of time at registration time. People will now be in the computer so this helps too. Please remember that everyone was given 2 sponsorship forms at the first Gymkhana so if you can bring those in that would be great!! Help us make your year end a successful one.
June 1st – Saddle Series Race 2. Approximate start is ½ hour after the Gymkhana is done. You can give any of the executives a call during the day to find out how things are going if you don’t want to show up for the slated 4:00 we figure we are to be done by. We need a couple of sponsor’s for this event so if anyone has some contacts that would be great!!
