Thank You For Visiting!
Just a quick update from GOBRA. We will be having our 2nd annual Flea Market on May 19, 20, and 21 this year. Location will be at the Prineville Ridge Riders Clubhouse at 1428 NW O'Neil Hwy, Prineville, OR. Fri and Sat times are 8am to 6pm and Sun will be 8am to 1pm. Donations are gladly being accepted. For more information please contact Becky at 541-815-2079. PLEASE, it you call, respect her by calling after 5pm as she works. You can also text her at this number. The money raised from this will benefit our Care Closet and the people we help throughout the year here locally. Thanks
Here is where you can put your ideas in our "BOOT"
It looks like I will probably not be at the ride this year due to upcoming back surgery. So, I am asking for any suggestions to make the ride different as to food, camping, trail whatever. If you have a theme you would like to see us try let me know and we will check into it. I don't know how to make the trial any different as I cannot be out there so if you have a suggestion, let me know.
Call me at 503-702-5726.
You know when we started this it was for, with luck, one year but we have had so much fun and been able to help so many people we just keep going. Kind of like that little "battery bunny"
BEST NEWS YET
WE OFFICALLY HAVE OUR
501 C 3
WE HAVE THE RIDE PIC
Let me know if you are interested. I will be posting some as the year goes by on this website.
We have all kinds of great news for you.
We started something a couple years ago. We have a GOBRA Care Closet. This is for Durable Medical Equipment such as, wheel chairs, shower chairs, toilet seat risers, bedside commodes, walkers, etc. We have quite a list and are taking donations. We have a trailer in which to house these items and will be cleaning them and then lending them out to those in need. Our main target areas are Crook County, Paulina, Post and Mitchell. The people we are wanting to help are those with Cancer, and those on Medicare or Medicaid. Medicare and Medicaid do not always pay for these type of items so we are stepping up to the plate to help. If you have any questions or think you can help... OR know anyone who might need help PLEASE feel free to call myself or Joanne Hink and we will have answers for you. We also have disposable undergarments (not to lend) if you or someone you know needs them.
We are trying to start a Disposable undergarment Bank in town to supply that need. If you know anyone who has extras of these, please let them know we can use them. Call me at 503-702-5726.

Photos are being updated ...Plan to join us next year on the 3rd weekend in Sept. I have posted pic of the camp site and the trail.
We are on a cattle ranch and there are antelope, elk and other critters including wild horses so be prepared.
Two years ago we suspended watermelons in hay-nets in the water tank (see pic) The horses weren't sure what to think but did quite well. Great learning tool. If you have good pic from these rides we would love to have them to post.
We will still have our original trail from the last 3 years. trail. We will keep the shorter flatter trail and see what we can come up with this Summer as an alternative trail.
Cost for everything is $40. per rider. If you have a group of 5 or more it will be $35. each. Weather is supposed to be
70 degrees high and 42 degrees low for Sat. so come prepared.
There is water there for horses AND us human types too.
Remember, we can camp and ride Sat and Sun if that is something of interest. However, if you want to ride Sun you need to bring food for your 4 hooved friend and yourself too as we only feed you on Sat. If you want to ride Sun you are basically on your own. Any questions, please feel free to ask myself or Joanne. We will again have the Crook County Sheriffs Mounted Posse with us this year. A big thank you to them for riding with us every year.
Remember our meal and after ride activities are also open to non-riders so come for the ride and invite your non-riding friends to join you. They have to eat too. We will also be having our silent auction and raffle.
Again all proceeds will go local families.
Come and help us help others.
We look forward to seeing you and your 4 hooved friend again.
