Bohemian Horse Ride!!!

This event is for adults only. Fellow bohemians come join us at Lazy 8 Riding in Copper Canyon TX and let your bohemian spirit run free as you horse back ride off Lake Lewisville while "crossing creeks, traversing changing terrain, and maneuvering through heavily wooded hills."  

My spirit smiles just thinking about breathing the fresh air and escaping the urban hustle and bustle for a little while. The Lazy 8 assures us that beginners do well with this ride; check their website for more info. You will experience a one (1) hour guided ride with 10 minutes of training. We will ride in groups of 5 (max per their policy.)  The hour will get you to the lake and back.

The cost is $30 per person paid online herehttp://www.lazy8ridin... The First group leaves at 4pm and the Last group returns about 730--around dusk probably.   Since we will ride in groups of 5, there will be some down time as riders wait for their respective group to mount. The ranch has a fishing pond, horse shoe games, ping pong, and we can bring other games as well.  There is an air conditioned school house w/ indoor plumbing where we could setup a potluck dinner.  If a burn ban is lifted by the county a marshmallow roast after sunset is also an option.

Next Steps: Please RSVP only if you are certain you will attend.  Your spot will be secured when you pay online and confirm your RSVP with PAID in the comments area. Also, If you would like to do the ride, potluck during the wait, and marshmallow roast, please, in your RSVP comments include PAID / the specific dish you will bring--that way I can gauge interest in the potluck part of the meet-up.  FYI,  they only supply iced water and indoor tables/chairs--we bring food/drinks.  We hosts will bring paper products/utensils and non alcoholic drinks.  While it might make for interesting memories, I'm not sure we can consume alcohol and ride--I'll confirm the BYOB rules.  Lastly, "Everyone must wear long pants and closed toed shoes, preferably a slick soled shoe with a little bit of a heel but we do understand not everyone has these types of shoes so as long as everyone has a closed toed shoe you will be fine. Also, you will all have to sign a liability waiver.

You can go to www.lazy8riding.com and click on the "liability waiver" and print them off, have everyone sign them and bring them with you (this is the fastest way, so once you arrive you can just get started riding and not have to mess with signing them all when they get there.)" So, are you ready to ride??

    Another unique, fun, interesting, and exciting Urban Bo adventure. The horseback riding was ultra relaxing and the company great.

    Hey gang, I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the event. I feel like we might need to issue some type of merit badge to our brave riders of hungry and free spirited horses...names withheld to protect the innocent! :-) I had a great time meeting and hanging out with all of you. Until next time...

    Hi All Looks like I missed my spot. I will get in WL, if a spot opens up I will pay right away!

    September 16, 2011

  • Pamela

    Thank you to those of you who have responded "yes" and have followed the steps provided here.

    If you have responded "yes" and have NOT paid, your RSVP will be deleted and someone else will have your spot during the time I have reserved for our group.

    If you have paid and did not tell me you paid SOMEONE ELSE WILL GET YOUR SPOT due to your own lack of responsiveness. I've provided the necessary information and trust that you can/will use it appropriately without external micro-management.

    A couple of items:

    The ranch is allowing BYOB but only after you've come back from your trail ride.

    The burn ban is still in effect; so, sadly we cannot have a bonfire. :-/ BUT I know we will still have a fun time.

    I can't wait! Thanks so much for planning this event. I look forward to meeting everyone. I was at the wine tasting last week, but so many people were there that it was a bit overwhelming and did not connect with many of you.

    September 12, 2011

  • Pamela

    I look forward to meeting those of you that I haven't met. FYI: If you have RSVP'd "yes" for the horse ride please pay for your spot by Wednesday 9/14 before 8 pm. After 9/14 your unpaid RSVP will be canceled and those on the wait list will be moved to attending. Thanks for your responsiveness and understanding. -See you soon.

    Anyone interested in carpooling? I live in East Dallas, near White Rock Lake. Can ride or drive (4-seater car).

    Now, it's times like these when being able to be in two places at one time would really come in handy. Unfortunately, I'm no longer available to attend this event as will be on a weekend trip with one of my other meetup groups. I know you all will have an absolute blast, and hopefully, we'll do this event again soon.

    Sounds great Kate! Looking forward to seeing all of you.
