    • Hello!
      I am new to the area and looking for ride partners/groups. Since I am unfamiliar with the terrain and area it would be nice to meet others to ride with, so I can learn the trail systems and where to go or not to go!
      I have a very solid 14 y.o. Arabian gelding( not flighty or dingy like some are), and and coming 4 y.o. I am starting this year.
      Looking forward to a long ride season.
      Thank you!

  2. Angel and Demetria,
    So sorry I missed your comments. New members are always welcome. Come on out to our next meeting, 7:00 PM March 8th at the Cattlemen’s building on Dolarway–out by the West interchange (I-90, exit 106). We’re starting to get geared up for a great year!
