February 2006 Newsletter

Our club is growing more and more. We did discuss the up coming Trail Trotters Day, where the club will be putting up tie ups at Hunters Camp. We will have more information at the next meeting. It was so good to see everyone wanting to get involved, it will take us all to keep Hunters Camp open.

Also we are sponsors of a St. Jude Ride on April the first. It is a Sat. And it will be at Fires Creek. More information on that ride coming up. We can not advertise because the park said we would have to buy special insurance if we ran ads. So it will be word of mouth. Please bring ideas to next meeting.

We talked about a call the next person list for when we ride other then the family ride. I will have this list at the meeting or you can have it e-mailed to you. A lot of us ride during the week and plan to go the night before so this will help letting you that want on the list to be called.

There is a poker ride in March at Dawsonville Forest by the GERL. Some are going down on Thurs. Before the ride to camp but it is a one day trip also. If you are interested call me or Darrell Adams.

I'm so sorry to say we lost another horse. Joyce Robinson lost her horse Blaze. He was found on the pasture with a broken neck, the thought was something spooked the whole herd and Blaze fell. We are sorry Joyce for your loss.

Rose had a English saddle offered to her for as long as she needed it and I went to Some English tack shops and got her the stirrup leathers and stirrups. Thanks to Judy Kinnie for the loan of the saddle and the club for the rest.

Happy Trails, Esther
