Valley Ridge Riders hosts successful first Poker Ride

August was a busy month for the Club. We had our last Gymkhana of the year on Sunday August 10th with a great turn out of both riders and spectators. On Saturday August 23rd, we held our first ever fund raising Poker Ride. We invited quads, bikes, walkers and of course horse and rider to come and try their luck.

There were 19 people on 10 quads, and 9 horse and riders. Volunteers, directors and members shared in preparing the trail ahead of time as well as manning the five card stations that included the start and finish and getting the food and BBQ down to the Rodeo grounds.

Fifty percent of the proceeds went to the top three winning hands. Thanks to our poker hand specialist who took all twenty eight hands and determined the winners.

The ride started at 3:15pm and the last rider arrived at the Rodeo grounds at about 5:20pm. After a rest and a thirst quencher we dove into our famous Rodeo burgers.

Everyone had a great time and we are talking about doing another ride onSunday, September 28. Thank you to all that participated and to the dedicated volunteers who helped make this event happen. Happy Trails, one and all
