MCTRA Trail Ride Season Planner for 2017-18 from Tracy Crowder, Secretary

Hi ya'll!

It is the time of year to bring your attention to upcoming events. I know lots of you are PLANNERS and need this information to get your calendars set. You will receive a flyer in the mail for each event, and you can keep up with what is going on our new web page, MCTRA.com or the MCTRA Montgomery County TrailRide Facebook page.

NEW this year is the MCTRA Halloween Ride. It will be a Borski's at 16245 TX-75 #75, Willis, TX 77378, on October 27-29th. We will have a circle ride Saturday (prizes given for best dressed wagon, and best dressed horse) - approx. 16 miles. Then time to dance Saturday evening, and of course we will have a costume contest that evening! Then a short circle ride Sunday. Cost: $20 per person - kids 12 and under ride free. Porta Cans available and water will be provided for horses. Generators are welcome. Sammie J will be catering!

We have also made some changes to the Christmas Parade Ride. Magnolia changed their parade time to evening. We decided that would not be in our best interest. So, we are planning to go to Conroe. This is still in the works as there are a few things that must be decided and done before this happens. However, you can mark your calendar for December 9th for a ride and parade and of course a dance that night! Cost and more info on this to come!!

Now we are gonna all be ready for the Kick Off Ride come January 12th-14th. Need to get all your ponies warmed up for the Big Ride in February. This will be in Madisonville at Cattlemen's Sidewalk Park, this is the same place we start our Big Ride each year. There will be a two day circle ride Saturday and Sunday with new routes this year! There will be a dance on Saturday night right after our auction. We will be looking for each wagon group to bring auction items, please. Cost: $20 per person - kids 12 and under ride free. There will be a $5 a night hookup fee for electricity at the park. Porta Cans available and water will be provided for horses. Generators are welcome. Sammie J will be catering!

Then our annual adventure across country - THE BIG RIDE! The start date for this will be February 16th-23rd!! It will start in Madisonville at Cattlemen's Sidewalk Park. Cost is $20 per person to ride the weekend only. It will cost $40 per person for the weeklong ride which will also grant your membership to MCTRA for the year. Remember Brochures will go out detailing all the information for this one.

Just a reminder to the nice folks that help us out by pulling the Porta cans and the sound wagon at these rides; we offer to pay 25.00 a day for your help. You can't drink and drive, but as long as you are an insured driver you can still have some fun and get paid a little for it. Thank you in advance to our helpers!

Also, we would like to remind you that at registration EACH PERSON MUST SIGN a ride waiver and show current proof of negative Coggins for every equine you bring.

So much fun to haveā€¦.. !!! See you all soon! Happy Trails!!
