Trail ride meet-up at Dawson Butte Ranch Open Space Park

At our May meeting we scheduled several “during the week” trail rides for our members that are available for weekday riding and want to meet up at some of our local parks.   Our first one will be this Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

This park has a small parking area, so we are planning to arrive early and be ready to ride by 9:30 AM.

This park only has a 5 mile trail, but it has a parallel bridle path with over 50 jumps along the route.  It has a nice picnic spot halfway out, with tie rails for the horses.

Directions:

1923 Tomah Road, Castle Rock. From I-25, take the Plum Creek Parkway exit west and head south five miles on the frontage road; turn right/west at Tomah Road; follow 1.5 miles to the Dawson Butte Ranch entrance on the right.

Summer Plans

May General Meeting, Wednesday May 2nd.

We will review scheduled dates for trail rides and clinic/show events for May through September.  We would really appreciate your input Wednesday evening.  If any members have/know of conflicts with other events, we can probably flex our dates to accommodate.

Our meetings are always open, so consider inviting a friend to attend with you.

Upcoming Meeting, March 7th, 6:30 PM

Our March meeting will be focusing on Colorado’s Brand laws and how they can impact your warm weather travel and riding plans.

February Meeting Canceled

We have been notified by the folks at Jeffco Fairgrounds that the Green Mountain Conference Rm. is unavailable for our meeting for this Wednesday, February 7th.   Additionally, their Exhibit Hall areas are being re-roofed, so they cannot move us into those.  We have been unable to procure alternative meeting space, so the February General Membership meeting is canceled:-(

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

Our meeting on Wednesday, March 7th will be held as usual.  Our tentative speaker topic will cover Brand Inspections – what you need to know.
