President's Message

​Hello everyone! I had an opportunity on our June ride to spend time with many members and especially several new members. Not all rides have this many attendee (40) or present us all with such a fun social opportunity to visit and just hang out. One comment I heard over and over was” such a great ride”. Many of the new members commented on “how welcoming and friendly our group is “and yes, we are. Our next social gathering and ride will be at Santa Margarita Lake in September with a pot-luck after the ride. If you choose not to ride you can still come out and join us for lunch.

I think what is really wonderful about the area we live in is the choice of places to ride even when it’s really hot out. I hope everyone who can, will take advantage of our beautiful places to ride this summer. Network with members to share ideas on trails as many 
members are not familiar with our trail systems. And please ride with a buddy or if you ride alone let someone know where you are going and when you will be back.

Last thing, Pigeon Fever is back with a vengeance. It can survive 8 mos. in dirt and up to two months in hay and shaving. Stay on top of flies as they carry the bacteria. Infection can cause nasty external abscesses, internal abscesses, and your horse can get really sick. 
A vaccination is available.

Stay safe and get out and ride.
