Hello everyone! The PINK RIDE this year will be a one day event on Sunday, November 3rd at 10:30.
You can arrive at Steve's pole barn on Saturday, November 2nd and ride the Park if you would like. Please let me know when you're arriving. We may be able to get a few riders together on Saturday, but the actual Pink Ride will be held on Sunday.
If the weather allows, we will try to have a campfire on Saturday night. We will not be having a dinner or an auction this year. Please collect only monetary donations for BCRF. In the past, rider's have given a $25 donation for the cause and that has been greatly appreciated.
After Sunday's ride, I will provide a lunch (hot dogs & soup) for everyone. Please share this info with your other horseback riding friends.
I hope to see you all there. I have attached a ride flyer, donation sheet, and thank you letter. Any questions, please contact me at email@example.com or 5706405007.
