The 2014 Labor Day Trail Ride sponsored by OETRA is just a few days away. In Oklahoma, trail riders are ready to hit the trails by Labor Day weekend as August is usually hot and dry. Due to the heat, there are not a lot of trail rides in Oklahoma in August. Early September brings some cooler temperatures and wonderful trail riding weather! The ride is open to members and non-members and will be held at Robbers Cave State Park. The cost is $10 per person for members and $15 per person for non-members with family maximums for all. We plan to attend part of the weekend, but can’t make the entire event. Hope to see you there! For more information, contact Wendy Hanson, firstname.lastname@example.org, Dawna Graham, email@example.com or the web page for this outstanding Oklahoma trail riding association.
The Oklahoma Equestrian Trail Riders Association (“OETRA”) held a trail ride at Bell Cow Lake this past weekend. We were only able to attend Saturday, but met some really nice people. Funny, horse people tend to be great folks. Those attending this ride were certainly pleasant and welcoming. The members of OETRA had spent the weekend before working the trails and clearing brush. The trails were marked very thoroughly and extremely easy to follow.
The weather was somewhat typical for Spring in Oklahoma. Saturday was windy and gusty, but warm. The sunshine was warm, but not hot.
OETRA has been conducting a membership drive. If you are looking for trail riding buddies, you ought to make contact with the group and attend one of their trail rides. We were told there are several more rides scheduled thru the Spring and Summer. We plan to attend more of them. It’s tough to get enough trail riding in Oklahoma this time of year!!!!!!!!!!!
Julie Cameron reports the Oklahoma Equestrian Trail Riders Association is hosting a weekend of trail riding and camping the weekend of April 11 – 13, 2014. There will be a lot of trails to ride and entertainment in the evenings. Saturday night will have a pot luck dinner to create some new friends and get to know each other. But, the most important and best part of the weekend will be riding the trails in the Oklahoma Springtime. It will be green and alive with all the new growth that always starts this time of year. The cost of attending is very reasonable, $15.00 for non-members and $10.00 for members of OETRA. Children under age 12 may attend free of charge. Julie wants to put the word out that everyone is welcome! If you want more information, send her an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
