Spring Ride 2018

Reported by Doris Stimpson – April 26th

Our spring ride concluded Sunday April 15 on a gray day but no rain. Thanks to all who joined our ride this spring it was a wonderful turnout. The weather was spectacular.

Many thanks go to all the unsung heroes that keep the ride going. I may miss someone so apologies but great thanks go to: Witcher Dudley our long suffering announcer, Ellen and Kent Ford who are steadfast in helping in all ways,Judy Voll who has been coming for over 40 years always helping as she can, Mary Minor Henderson who volunteered to record rather than ride, Martha Rodgers our faithful president who made many trips from Charlottesville to make sure everything was ready.. made the most wonderful stall cards,, gave of her time in abundance with entries and hotel details, Robin Mellen our treasurer who keeps us in the black!, Kelly Guinta our  vet judge, Debbie Ryder the stable manager who makes things happen for us, Mike the farrier, Matt our trail marker.

Please mark your calendars for the fall ride October 7-9
