President's Letter

Happy July, Saddle Sore Riders!

Happy Birthday, America! July is the month we celebrate the birth of the greatest country in the world. Before I share some exciting events coming up this month, let's take a look back at the outstanding month of June.

June Highlights

· Walnut Creek Trail Ride: Mike McCarthy led a dedicated group of nine riders on a nearly 3-hour ride, covering 6.5 miles. Despite the heat, everyone had a terrific time and found relief under the shade of some big trees.

· Jeannie Kelly’s Famous Taco Ride: This ever popular event attracted 19 riders who enjoyed a 1.5-hour ride before returning to the Legion for amazing tacos and a patriotic dessert, red, white, and blue shortcake. The event was fun-filled, with prizes given away during the 50-50 raffle.

Upcoming Events in July

· Fourth of July: Celebrate the birth of our nation!

· Day of the American Cowboy: On July 27, the City of Norco is holding a rodeo at Ingalls at 4 PM. Tickets are available on their website: It promises to be a great time.

Looking Ahead to August

· Fallbrook Ride: Mark your calendars for August 17. This ride features tons of gorgeous views and several water crossings, so make sure your horse is comfortable with water.

As we celebrate America’s birthday, let’s not forget the words of Thomas Wolfe: “America, it is the only place where miracles not only happen, but where they happen all the time.” I look forward to seeing all of you at the general meeting.

Have a Yankee Doodle day!
