Happy June!

June newsletter

Our next meeting will be on Wednesday June 22 at 7pm location TBD. At our last meeting we agreed to continue with Wednesdays as Fridays are for camping.

Our next big thing is the “How To Horse Camp” event on Sunday June 5th, see pages 8&9. Check this out if you want an introduction to a way to enjoy the great outdoors on your horse without rushing home after the ride.

Then there is an opportunity to put that into practice at one of the most luxurious camping spots in the area. Jack Brook Horse Camp June 24th-27th.

We are looking to enter the Morgan Hill July 4th parade with horses, riders and donkeys. If you are thinking of joining let us know, and if your horse needs some parade like experience we have a little clinic on June 18th from 9:30am-noon Contact us for details.
