Thank You For Visiting!
Hi to all...
We held our 6th annual trail ride in Sept and it was a swell success. The weather was nice and we had campers for Sat night.
Our cook this year was Jesse Bowles and he did a great job making sure all were fed and there was plenty to go around. Thanks Jesse.
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"
We are doing a fund raiser this year with all proceeds going to benefit Redemption House Ministries for their shelter Christmas dinners.
We had Police Chief Cummins "arrest" Crook County Commissioner; Ken Fahlgren for all the good things he has done for Crook County. Ken was then released on his own recognizance. Bail was set at $500. and there are containers around town at the feed stores, Les Schwab, vet clinics, and Ray's Grocery. They have Ken's pic behind bars on them.
FUN TIMES AHEAD
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 are now partnering with COVO. (Central Oregon Veterans Outreach) They are based in Bend, but do come to Prineville.

Photos are being updated ...Plan to join us next year on the 3rd weekend n 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.
Ride registration starts at 9am and we want to have a ride meeting at 11 before we head out. 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.
