Fall Ribbon Ride--Prizes and Fun--Open to Community
It's time for Moms Daughter's and Horses 2009 Fall PINK Ribbon Ride. I've blogged about it before because we host them in Spring as well--remember when we rode for eggs? This one is going to be for Breast Cancer research. We're a women's club and what better cause could there be?!?
We're going to be riding out for PINK ribbons and taking donations for breast cancer research and the scholarship fund--the proceeds will be split 50/50.
Some of the prizes will be College Scholarships for kids--6 $100.00 scholarships. There'll be a requirement that the guardian sets up a tax-free college account where the club can deposit the award. There will be lots of other prizes as well--and this year boys can ride with their moms.
As in the past, the ride will be at Riverside State Park--the old Trail Town Stables area. September 26th at 10:30. Afterwards we're going to have a tailgate lunch and tack swap and sell.
It's easy to participate--just bring a horse and a helmet--register and sign the liability waiver. At 10:30 we'll let everyone ride out in different directions to search for ribbons tied to tress. When you find one, (ages 21 and under), you can go back to the trailhead or continue to ride until everyone's back (about an hour). At around 11:30 or 12:00, when all riders have returned safely, we'll draw numbers (each ribbon has a number) and the person drawn can come up and choose a prize.
Hopefully, there'll be prizes for everyone who participates, but it all depends on how many show up. In the past, there have been more than enough prizes.
If you want to join us, RSVP here and I'll forward it on to the organizers.
