I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house at our February meeting after watching the very inspirational story of Harry and Snowman. It really showed what an exceptional bond we can form with our horses. We had a great turnout and I think everyone enjoyed the movie.
The surprise I mentioned in last month’s Eventer was announced. SMHA has secured Jack Brook campgrounds for August 16 – 20. Everyone was very disappointed when we previously had to cancel this campout. The club had a couple of successful events putting us in a better financial position so we were able to book the campground Thursday through Monday. Hope to see you all there to enjoy the beautiful trails, facility and camaraderie of other club members.
March’s general meeting should be lots of fun. The club will be providing corned beef and cabbage with all the trimmings for a small fee. We’re also going to play a few games of “horse” bingo. Cards will be $.50 each or 3 for $1.00. Prizes will be fun “white elephant” gifts supplied by your board members. See you on the 9th for this meeting,
The weather has been spring-like on and off making for beautiful trail rides. The days are getting longer and longer providing more time for riding. Due to delays in the opening, we were unable to have our March ride at Rancho San Vincente but the SCCHA is having their “Dirty Horse Ride” on the 17th at Calero. Pull those horses out of the pastures, leave ‘em dirty and win a prize if your horse is the dirtiest. Since our ride was unable to take place, let’s support our fellow horse club at their Calero ride. I’m sure they will reciprocate on future events!
We are off to a busy start and this year has a lot of fun events still in the wings. Keep coming to the meetings and checking your Eventer for all the upcoming fun!
