Hello PPHOT members and friends,
PPHOT has scheduled the following trailrides for the rest of this year.
Sept 16-18 Parrie Haynes Youth Ranch, between Florence and Killeen. They do not take reservations. Turn West off of 195 onto 2670 at Ding Dong; Drive to Maxdale Road and turn right (Just before the old bridge). Go past the first entrance to Parrie Haynes and continue on for about 2-3 miles where you will see the equestrian entrance on the left (Just before the yellow fence). Some will arrive on Thurs Sept 15 and you are welcome to join them. Hookups are available on a first-come basis. Dry camping is also available with water faucets in the area; just pick a good tree! Enter the equestrian camp area and pay on the honor system. Park tel. nbr. (254) 554-3970.
Oct 28-30 Cooper Lake State Park, Sulpher Unit. Make reservations thru the State Parks System. There will be a Horse Costume Contest for Halloween with prizes. Dress up your horse and join the fun! Some will come on Thurs and you are welcome to join them.
Nov 5-7 Ray Woods Oklahoma Ranch Ride. Go to Ray's website for more information. Full hookups and hot showers available.
Nov 23-27 Lake Somerville, Nails Creek Unit. Thanksgiving Pot Luck Dinner. Make reservations early thru the State Parks System as this park fills early.
For all trailrides (except Ray Woods') we will have a Pot Luck Supper on Saturday night; bring your own steak or other meat and a dish or snacks to share. On Sunday we will have a Community Breakfast compliments of PPHOT. When Chef David can attend, he will cook all evening meals and the Sunday breakfast, compliments of PPHOT (there will be no Sat. Pot Luck). I will send an email when Chef David will attend.
