October 7th is expected to be a beautiful fall day – a great day for riding, hiking, and raising money toward the fight against breast cancer. Since the ride is on Sunday this year, we will be having a Cowboy Church service at 8:00am. Ride check-in will begin after the service, at 8:30am. Coffee and those wonderful Panera Bread ribbon shaped bagels will be available for breakfast.
PLEASE REMEMBER to bring the following items to the check-in table in the clubhouse:
Other things you might want bring along:
We are very grateful for use of the Horseman Ranch facilities again this year, and so we hope everyone will follow the rules to ensure the health of their herd:
New this year… we will have horse sitters to watch the horses while you’re eating and bidding on auction items. We’ll provide you with an information card at check-in. Simply slide it under your wiper, and if your horse gets anxious, hungry or thirsty, our horse sitters will come let you know.
Prize drawing tickets will be awarded to registered participants – one ticket for every $100 raised. For online donations, totals will be recorded at 5:00am on October 7th. Donation checks handed in at the ride before 11:00am will also be included. We were very fortunate this year to have some super great sponsors provide some really great prizes.
It’s exactly one week until we saddle up. Registrations and donations are way down this year and we are far from reaching our goal. I know a lot can be accomplished in a very short time, so I hope you will take these last few days to reach out to your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers, and ask for their support in this worthwhile cause. We’ll be accepting same-day registrations, so please invite others to come and ride or bid at the auction.
On behalf of the Minnesota Equestrienne, thank you for your participation, and we look forward to seeing you all on the 7th!
