Welcome Back Saddle Sore Riders!
What a month! Do you think it could get any more humid and hot? I certainly hope not!
In looking back a month, Norco has had some pretty great entertainment; National Day of the American Cowboy, Norco Founders Day, the 4th of July Trail Ride and Picnic in the Park and the Bark for Life. I hope that many of you took advantage of the fun! Looking forward is the 31st Annual Norco Mounted Posse PRCA Rodeo, 8/21 – 8/23, which Saddle Sore Riders’ team, headed by Charlene Hall, will provide event parking all three days. She is still looking for help – by horseback or on foot. We will also enjoy the Norco Fair 2015, 9/3 – 9/7, “Cowboy Boots and Country Roots”, as well as the Labor Day Parade that Saddle Sore Riders has entered.
SSR has also provided you with the Wrightwood Ride in June and most recently the Moonlight Madness Ride, which was challenging for all concerned. I want to direct you to pages 6 and 7 of this Nooseletter – the General Trail Rules. Saddle Sore Riders has come a long way in the past 30 years and I am extremely proud of the Club. Likewise, all of our Trail Bosses and Outriders pride themselves in putting the safety of our riders and horses above all else. Please re-read the Trail Rules and pay special attention to those that I have highlighted. There is always the possibility of an accident, but there is a far less risk if riders are considerate and are mindful of rider etiquette. It is also extremely important that all guests/non-members on our rides are aware of our Trail Rules. Members are responsible for their guest’s behavior.
