Calling all Participants!!
Theme: “American Road Trip”
Let’s help our club have a good showing this year!

We hope to have Sandy’s miniatures again and are looking for a good group of full-size horses as well. We will decorate our trailer with a road trip theme in hopes of earning yet another first place award.

Remember: if you can’t ride a horse in the parade – you can STILL ride in the trailer with us!

We’ve come up with some ideas for our float and pooper scooper. New blue reins have been ordered as well as some white and blue leg wraps for the horses. We are planning on making some cantle decorations out of red/white/blue netting. Come to our Pizza Pom Pom Party!! We will brainstorm on parade ideas, eat pizza and make netting pom poms! More information to follow. If you’re interested in helping or participating with the parade, please make sure to sign up on the parade sheet at the May 8th meeting or contact Bev @ 408-778-0034.
This is our chance to shine before our local community – let’s WOW them!
