Saturday, riders and their equines participated in a Treasure Ride & Drive on the trails that are accessible right from the property. As you rode the trail, you would pick up a card posted along the trails and turn it in for a prize.  Prizes consisted of mugs, lead ropes, hoof picks, horse treats, etc.

On Saturday, lunch was served after the Treasure Ride and the grilling chef did an great job on the grilled chicken and the burgers. All the fixins’ made the potluck a success.
