June events to Kick off Summer

June membership meeting will be Wednesday, June 6th.  Reminder out meeting start time is 6:30 PM.

June 10th is our annually held de-spook clinic at the Events Center area at Jeffco Fairgrounds.

We are having two “Meet-Up” rides this month.  As planned these rides will be happening the 2nd Thursday and 4th Monday of each month.

For June the 2nd Thursday ride will be at north Table Mountain Park in Golden.  This park has good trailer parking and the trail offers great views of both the mountains and the front range of Denver and its suburbs.  The trail offers prairie to explore on top of the mesa, with a variety of birds and wildflowers.

June 25th the 4th Monday ride will be at Stauton State Park just west of Conifer.

 

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.

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.

General Meeting on January 3rd is LRC Movie Night

Please join us for a viewing of one of the top horse movies of all time:
SEABISCUIT

Called “a flat-out great movie,” by Larry King.

Seabiscuit is a 2003 equestrian sports film directed by Gary Ross and based on the best-selling non-fiction book Seabiscuit:  An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand.  The film is loosely based on the life and racing career of Seabiscuit, an undersized and overlooked Thoroughbred race horse, whose unexpected successes made him a hugely popular media sensation in the United States during the Great Depression. Seabiscuit was nominated for seven Academy Awards.  This movie stars Toby Maguire, Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper.

Plan on arriving at 6:30 PM and the movie will start at 6:45 PM.   Plenty of Buttered popcorn and Kettle corn will be provided and also ice water. Please feel free to bring a drink of your choice and your own comfortable, camp chair, lounger, or even a bean bag or blanket, so you can kick back and relax (i.e. not squirm on one of the conference room’s folding chairs;-)
