    I would love to join this event but I live in DC and don't have a car. Is there any way possible I could carpool with someone? I can meet you at any metro station. (Would this work for you Sue?)

    Eric...No experience required. You just sit on the horse and they tell you how to guide... It's quite simple... So come out and enjoy the events.

    Horseback riding, food, and wine - 3 of my favorite things! I'm coming from Woodbridge and would have spots for 3 or 4 more people. I'm new to the area and would love to have someone else ride along with me!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
