Good Afternoon,

Today is the last day of this absolutely horrid heat wave and we are looking for relief tomorrow. Time to get back out there with our beloved 4-leggers and ride!

We have a busy calendar for September and October. Here are the highlights of what we have going on and the ways that you can volunteer and participate:

Patriotic Gymkhana show: Tomorrow Saturday 9/10/22

We will begin sign-ups at 7am and show starts at 9am. We need help putting out the signs, taking out obstacles from conex shed and helping in the announcer booth.

2nd Amaze Day Playday: September 24th

Come try out our fun new obstacle courses and challenge yourself and horse skills as you navigate over trot poles, flags, carrying saddle bags, small jumps, poles, cones and barrels. Lots of fun with great prizes! Sign-ups begin at 7:30am and show starts at 9:30am with riders meeting at 9am. We will need help setting up the courses, putting out the signs in the morning, snack bar and announcer booth assistance. I will send out the diagrams and rules the week of the event. We also have an online entry form you can fill out. https://form.jotform.com/222008504519045

RIDING CLINIC #1-Ground work Sept. 28th

I will be holding another series of three clinics beginning with ground work for respect and control of each working part of your horse. Clinic will start at 6pm. You will need to rsvp for this clinic as we have room for only 10 riders. If not enough interest in the groundwork...we can hold a body-control clinic to start.

NEW!!! ARENA WORKDAY/CLEAN-UP  October 1st

show up between 8-9am for coffee and donuts. Workday to start by 9am. We will be staining the old railing, painting stall numbers on the panels, creating a walkway around the perimeter of arena so we have access to sprinklers, clear the arena railing of bushes and branches intruding into arena and general cleanup of our parking area. We need to complete this before the winter rains begin. Please...join us if you can and bring rakes, wheelbarrows, clippers, pole-saws, weedeaters, etc...

FALL FEST GYMKHANA  October 8 & 9th

Our annual 2 day buckle show which tends to bring a large amount of riders from all over northern California.

NEW!!! 2ND ANNUAL 29 & UP adult playday Oct. 22nd

A very fun show with 6 different events in the arena as well as a costume contest. A buckle will be raffled off in each of the three divisions offered and awards down to 4th place in each division. A huge raffle will be offered as well and we are looking for all kinds of raffle donations! Can be tack, grain, framed pictures, gift certificates, business baskets, etc... Please help us fill our table with raffle items! See the attached flyer for more information.

OCTOBER 29TH-PHA  Annual members Halloween playday

Spooktacular fun games inside and outside of arena with a costume contest. Pumpkin pie eating contest, apple bobbing, stick horse races, marshmallow on a string contest...so-much-fun for everyone! We will need help coordinating this event. This has always been one of our most popular events that we offer to our members. Let's make this one extraordinary!

At our meeting on Tuesday night, we discussed the need to get our 2023 schedule together. Our next board meeting on October 4th will be the time that we get all of our ideas and put them on paper. We have some great, new, fun rides in the works for next year!

Until we ride, Scarlett Miller, President
