06/08/2012 - Ride the High Country Take the Place of Ride the Ridge
Ride the Ridge outriders have announced that the Ride the Ridge annual trail ride has been cancelled for 2012. This ride has been a highlight for many horseback enthusiasts for more than 20 years and has encouraged riders to spend some time in the beautiful Pine Ridge area. High Country Ranch Ride has decided continue the tradition of a trail ride in the Pine Ridge area of northwestern Nebraska and will sponsor a similar event, Ride the High Country, on Saturday, June 9th.
“Ride the High Country” will be much the same as Ride the Ridge:
· Ride the High Country is FREE.
· Doughnuts will be furnished by the Agricultural Committee of the Chadron Chamber of Commerce. Bottled water during lunch will be provided by the Crawford Chamber.
· Please bring your own horse and tack.
· Pack your drink, lunch, and snacks.
The ride itself will consist of two parts. The morning ride will leave at 9:30 AM and return in time for lunch. Riders will not have to carry their lunches with them on the ride. Picnic tables will be available during lunch. The second part of the ride will leave at 1:00 PM and will cover a different area of the ranch.
The trail will be on private property, so riders will experience a new and different area. Among the additional activities being planned are an evening ride that will include an optional poker run for the adults and a free rummy run for kids under 16. A free natural horsemanship clinic will be presented by Dr. Robert Reid, DVM, after the main ride.
Because of liability issues on private property, all riders will be asked to sign a waiver of liability.
Riders are welcome to participate in all, or any part of the planned activities.
