Group Ride and Potluck Dinner

Due to the lack of response I got about the pot luck, we're going to cancel this Meetup entirely. I will work on rescheduling something similar soon! Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond our control we are having to cancel the riding portion of this Meetup. 

Abby has graciously offered to host the potluck portion at her place in West Town. 

Another option is to just meet up and go out for some drinks.

Please let me know if you are still interested in doing either of those things. It's Friday night, so no hard feelings if you would rather not meet up if horses are no longer involved. 

I will work on getting some more riding activities set up in the coming weeks!

    The alternate meeting at FatPour was a good time. It was nice to meet new members and trade info about various riding venues in the Chicagoland area. Thanks to Emily for organizing and reorganizing the event while Alex remains quite ill.

    Thanks for letting us know. I think I'll stop by for a drink too. I have cabin fever and need to get out before the next deep freeze hits Chicago. I live nearby on LSD. I'm riding down in Palos Hills on Sunday and in Mokena later in the week.

    Ah shucks! I have an appointment at my bank that I have been putting, off. I think I will get that little piece of business crossed off my "To-Do" list. Next one!

    Hey all! Due to lack of response, we're canceling the potluck as well. Abby and I are going to grab drinks at Fatpour Tap Works (2005 W Division St.) at 7- feel free to join! Come one, come all!

      hey Rose. probably too late for Glen Grove, but they have 1/2 hr group lessons for $40 or intermediate/advanced lessons for $60 for an hour (group also). I think you take lessons there? would you recommend something like that there at some point? I had my first horse grooming job there, but that was 30 yrs ago. :)

    argh, that sucks. I'm not sure another barn could accommodate w/such short notice and would probably require an instructor and don't know that they could host that late.
    anyone/everyone is still welcome to do potluck at my place in west town, but up for going out as well or if anyone finds another barn that could host.

    Hey all! Check your email-- Alex is in the hospital, so it's not looking good for the group ride on Friday. Is anyone interested in still doing the pot luck? Maybe just meeting up and going out? Or does anyone know of another barn that might be interested in hosting?

    Is there room for one more! I would like to ride (western) I am not sure what I will bring. I was thinking of hummus with veggies & pita. Perhaps some olives.

    Thought I could stop by after getting my grandkids but my daughter is bringing them here. If I were free that evening, would even ride a 'regular' horse. (I have gaited.) So now looking forward to meeting y'all at 'polo' 2/8. Not interested in learning to play - I've already flunked broom polo - brooms and beach balls!

    January 13, 2014

  • Rose T.

    I will bring some fruit, maybe grapes and a bottle of wine.

    January 13, 2014

  • Katie G.

    I plan to ride and I will bring some sort of dessert. Cant wait! :)

    This will be my first meet up with this group as well and I am very excited. I will be riding and I will bring Spinakopedia bites (very delicious)

    In case anyone is interested in planning a wish list, bucket list, or maybe just wanting to dream a little, here is the website of the travel outfit I use for riding vacations - www.hiddentrails.com. Or if we want to plan an extended weekend group riding trip in Michigan, the Double JJ Ranch is just a 4-hr drive away - www.doublejj.com. Happy Holidays to all!

    Have my grandkids (11 & 14) but would love to stop by and meet you if they're not too "gripey" about it. Teens! On the way, sort of.

    I don't know if I'll ride. If I do, it would be a western horse as I'm from Texas and more of a novice rider who hasn't ridden in many many years. Plan on bringing baked beans.

    This will be my first meetup with this group! I'm really excited to meet all of you! I will be riding and I will probably bring some sort of dessert to the potluck (baking is my forte).
