Successful Benefit Ride for Triple R Rescue!

WOOHOO!!!!!!! I think everybody would call this ride a big success! A perfect day with a nice breeze, lots of nice trails to ride at your own pace and lunch afterwards to kick back, socialize with friends and finish off the day. What more could you ask for. Two of our riders even saw a mama bear and two cubs, but by the time they got their camera, the bears disappeared into the woods. A number of riders spotted deer too.

A total of $1,151.50 was raised for Triple R. With 64 riders, $640.00 was collected, along with $15.00 in extra donations. Triple R held a small tack sale from donated goods, which generated $240.50. David Rigdon, with Triple R, grilled hotdogs and served plates of hotdogs, assorted chips, assorted desserts and drinks generating $256.00 for the grand total of $1,151.50.

I want to thank everybody who helped make this day successful, and thank all the participants that came to ride. I also greatly appreciate Jason Crowder allowing us to ride their plantation and use their facilities.

If you weren’t there, you missed a really fun day! […]

October 28, 2017 – Fort Braden

The day dawned clear but rain was expected in the afternoon. I left home earlier than usual because I knew a large crowd was expected. As I pulled up to the “fee box”, I noticed a large area had been taped off at the edge of the trailhead across from the box. The ground was wet and muddy. I wondered if it would cause a problem for folks to maneuver their rigs to get into the trailhead the more crowded it became but we have good drivers in our club. Ambrose and Wendy were already there as well as Tram, who was the trail boss for the ride. Herb was behind me. Tram told me his horse had been lame all week but seemed ok now but asked if I would lead the ride if Harley wasn’t able to handle it. Of course I agreed. As it turned out, there were two rides: one for slower horses and one for gaited horses. Tram led the gaited group on Harley on the west trail and Linda led the slower group on the east trail. I usually ride the east trail so I was looking forward to riding the west trail. We […]
