We will camp right next to this creek - on the other side from where I took this picture today. When you arrive on Saturday the 28th, PLEASE proceed to the registration area (we will have signs) to register and get your name tag, then you will be able to drive to the field, unload your gear, and then move your car back from the field, so we keep the area free of vehicles and have beautiful 360 degree views of the fields during the day, and the stars at night. Campers can line the outside ring of the tents on the back of the field, away from the creek.
1:00 Saturday Riders arrive at Secret Passage Ranch - We have thirty riders on Saturday (I'll post the list of who is riding when on the discussion board in the next few days, in case you forgot when you signed up).
Riders will enjoy a program designed to educate beginners and experienced alike. Those who have never ridden will get a lesson in the ring before they ride the valley.
If you are arriving for the cookout / campout, you may arrive anytime after 1:00pm to set up your tent, etc., walk around the property, watch the riders.
5:00 PIG ROAST - Outstanding barbecue -- meat and paper products are included. Everyone attending will be asked to bring a dish to share (that would serve 8), which will make the dinner more interesting and keep the costs down. Please sign up for what you want to bring on the discussion page.
7:00 BONFIRE, Hay ride - marshmallows welcome!
Campout: If you have a tent, please bring and set up before dinner. There are 6 hookups for campers at the barn; and port-a-potties.
SUNDAY breakfast: We'll have a country kitchen and wrap around porch in the farmhouse to use for breakfast.
SUNDAY RIDE: After breakfast, we have approximately 20 riders. If anyone who is camping, but didn't sign up to ride, wants to add a ride on Sunday they can do it that morning ($30). Or a Saturday rider could ride again (additional $30)
WEATHER: This event will be held rain or shine, unless there is torrential rain. There is an indoor riding ring where tents could be pitched in case of rain. And the farm house will hold the group for an indoor dinner and breakfast. Please bring appropriate clothing in case of cold or rain.
PETS: No cats; dogs must be on a leash at all times, not left unattended, and must not howl at the moon (or coyotes, or skunks, etc. while people are sleeping ;-)
ADULT BEVERAGES: Adult beverages are welcome (please do not drink and ride though). SECRET PASSAGE RANCH RULES: OVER-CONSUMPTION OF ALCOHOL WILL NOT BE TOLERATED AND SECRET PASSAGE RANCH RESERVES THE RIGHT TO END YOUR PARTICIPATION AT ANY TIME AND REMOVE ANYONE FROM THE PROPERTY.
