November Newsletter


Club Web Site:

Hello Everyone,

I sure hope you all are out there riding in this beautiful
weather. We camped at Watson Mill the first of the month and
had a great time. We took up over half the camp ground. Martha
Scissom brought her new horse, and he is a great trail horse.
Good luck with him! We had some ladies from Clayton, Ga..
join us with Linda Harrison, it was just a good time.

We voted to keep our same officers, so we will have to vote
them in at the November meeting as stated in our Bi-Laws. So
please try to come.

We will be planning our Christmas Party this meeting, so try
to attend. We all had a great time last year and this one will be
fun too. So if you can not make the meeting please call me to
see what kind of food to bring. We can talk about doing a gift
for a child to donate again.

We are looking into having a clinic early next year for our
club. Bring your ideas!

Our family ride will be decided at the meeting. With hunting
season it is hard to find a safe place, bring some ideas for that

It is with the greatest sadness to say we lost another great
horse. "Ben" belonging to Betty Weir has gone to run with the
free spirits. He was a noble steed, and loved by many. We will
all miss him, so long ""Benskee"""

We need people to help set up the family rides. If we plan
ahead then maybe more people can made plans to go.
Rose Goyette had a two day saddle cleaning event to raise
money for the rescue of horses from the hurricane disaster.
She worked very hard and will let us know how she did. Rose
thought of this herself, how nice to see her love of horses.
Thanks Rose!!!

October Newsletter

Hello Everyone, Welcome Fall!!! My favorite time of the year. I'm sorry I missed the last meeting, but Chip did real good. Betty and I went to the animal shelter and found out that no animals were being brought to this area, so we did not give them the check. We will vote on a better answer to our wishes to help animal rescue from hurricane Kathrina. The ASPCA has a great web site with lots of pictures and a list of people that are there needing our help. We will vote on a place to send money to help.

Our next meeting is our selecting of new officers. Please come and help our club continue to grow. We need all your help to make this club work. Think of the officers you want to elect. The meeting is Oct.13th at the bank, at 7 pm.

The family ride is at Watson Mill Bridge State Park, in Comer Ga. It is a nice one day trail ride or camp the weekend. It is no further then Deep Creek in Bryson City. From Hayesville it is a 2:20 minute drive. If you plan to come I will be glad to give you directions. If you have never ridden here please try to come, it is one of the best trail riding ever.

We had a great turn out for the last family ride, 15 riders. We did the Leather Wood jeep loop again. We also cleaned up the camping area and hauled off two bags of garbage. Thanks, riders for you help. Please check out the chat page and our sponsor page, we have a new sponsor. We are camping at Willis Knob or War Women in Nov.4,5,6,7. Start thinking about it now. Hope to see you all at the next meeting,

Happy Trails, Esther
