July 2007 Newsletter

Hello Everyone,

First I would like to thank all of you that came out and
supported me with the ATHA Ride. I had hoped that the people
that e-mailed me from all over the state could have made it, we
picked the weekend that was Trail Trotters Day so many riders
were involved with their own clubs. At any rate I made $375.00
to donate to our club, to be used as a youth fund. Amber, Rose
and Tiffany are the only youths we have at this time. Rose sold
enough girl scout cookies for camp, but Ambler joined too late,
so some of this money will go to send Amber to camp, and the
rest will be put aside to help these girls with shows, or anything
we feel they need. I would like to thank my helpers, Charlie and
Barbara Kissling, Randall Parker and Ora Mae Ledford ( they
provided all the hot dogs and buns) And Donna Gains. Thank
you all for putting up with me and all my craziness.

We are going to start another way of doing the Sat. Rides. It
gets too boring to stay in one place all month, so Randall
suggested that we all call or e-mail him or me Thurs. night and
he will have decided on a ride place. Sounds good to me! This
way we can all see more trails. Let us know what you think of this idea.

I hope all the committees have been working on their list, I will
start on a petition to leave around to spread the word about Fires Creek.

Rose and Amber went to the 4H camp in Arden a couple of
weeks ago and both had a great time. They learned a lot and
came back better horse people! At this camp they took their own
horses and were judged on the care of their horse and tack and
stall. They had to work hard. Great job girls!!

Our club seems to have been hit hard the last few months with
illness and injuries. Let this make us stronger and keep the faith
that all will get better. God Bless you all

******* HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY 4th OF JULY*******

Remember to save some red, white and blue to dress you and
your horse with.

Happy Trails, Esther
