Everyone who host's a ride please remember to submit
your information about the ride a few days before the 9th of the
month immediately after the ride so the ride can get in the
Ride hosts also must get their rides to Tina at least a
few days prior to the 9th of the month preceding the ride. For
instance if you plan to host a ride the 17th of April you'd need
to get it on the calendar a few days prior to the 9th of March. A
ride the first week of a month may have to be posted on the
calendar even earlier due to the timing when the Roundup hits
mailboxes and stores.
Please be aware of the departure time for announced trail rides.
As a courtesy to others, always arrive early enough to be saddled
up and ready to go at the announced departure time. Note: You do
not have to be a member to ride with us, just come and have a good
time. Everyone please have a current negative Coggins with you.
Bring your lunch and drinks. Saturday rides begin at 10:00 am and
Sunday rides begin at 9:00 am unless otherwise noted. It's the
riders responsibility to check with the ride host in case of
inclement weather and for directions to the ride location.

Roundup magazine delivered to your house every month, which is
worth the membership fee.
