Riders: find the golden horseshoe

BC Interior Morgan Horse Club

Calling all horseback riders and buggy drivers. A Scavenger Hunt and Poker Ride takes place Oct. 1 at Larch Hills X-Country Trails south of Salmon Arm.

Come and enjoy all the fall colours — all breeds and sizes of horses are welcome to this fundraiser for the B.C. Interior Morgan Horse Club.

“Ride the trails or drive them,” said Nancy Roman, with the event’s organizing committee. “We’ll offer a choice of a three-hour or one-hour ride; and drivers can do a 10 km buggy ride on their own logging road trail.

“Have fun collecting specimens for the scavenger hunt — the more you collect, the more you win! And if you’re lucky enough to find the golden horseshoe: bonus! There will be prizes for adults and juniors, riders and drivers.”

Like to play cards? Then join in on the Poker Ride; buy a hand or two at only $5 each, with prizes for the best hand!

Entry fees are $10 per rider or $10 per cart/buggy (passengers included). Horse Council BC insurance is preferred, but not mandatory. Sorry, no dogs please. There is lots of parking, with some corrals available. Pack a lunch or snacks.

“Join us for some great fall riding and driving.”

For more information, please contact Rachael at 250-679-1175 or Nancy at 250-546-9922.
