1st annual PrizeRIDE (Cancelled as per Facebook post 10/16/2020)


So, what IS a horseback prize ride and how does it work?

A prize ride is similar in concept to a poker ride except instead of trying to build a winning poker hand there are prizes being raffled. Included in the $20 registration fee is lunch and 4 raffle tickets. Of course, we encourage you to buy more tickets to help support the benefit and to increase your chances of winning!

On the day of the event everyone shows up to the ranch between 11:00 and 12:30. After taking care of your horses head on over to the registration area to check in, get your tickets, and sign the liability waiver. Keep track of your tickets, these will allow you to get lunch and to try for a chance to win the prizes you choose.

After everyone is done with lunch, head back out to your horses and get ready to head out. You will be assigned a group number when you register and that will be the order in which you will start. There will be a time lapse between groups so that you will have time at each check point. Be courteous and don’t crowd the start gate. This is not a race!

The trail will be marked with flagging, cones, and signs. You will be given a map and you will be able to see the riders ahead of you. There are three check point locations out on the trail. At each of these stations you will have the chance to look at the prizes there and decide if you want to put a ticket in one of those raffle jars or wait to see what’s at the next check point. Never fear, if you run out of tickets and then see something you would really like to win, you can always purchase more tickets at the stations!

When out on the trail please remember to be considerate of other riders. If one group is traveling faster than another, shout out and ask permission to pass. Please pass wide and slow. Remember, not everyone out there may be as experienced as you are.

Once you arrive back at the ranch and have taken care of your horse, head back to the registration area. There will be warm drinks and snacks provided. After we make sure everyone is in off the trail we will start the fun part of drawing for the prize winners!
