The local 4-H club is sponsoring its annual St Jude ride for September 21. It is in southern Oklahoma in the Arbuckle Mountains on a 25,000 acre ranch that is completely closed at all other times. It is only 1 mile off of I-35 and exit 47.
People must be pre-registered. The fee is $20.00 minimum with $15.00 going to St. Jude. A lunch is included. Riders arrive at 8:00 AM and ride leaves promptly at 9:00. [Gate is locked at 9:00.] It is very rocky so horses need shoes or boots. The ranch owners lead the ride. Number of horses is limited. Riders can ride again to a different part of the ranch after lunch or can leave. Horses must have current Coggins papers. [Please do not bring any coughing or snotty horses.] A rain date has been set as September 28.
We usually furnish a few horses for 4-H kids or parents and sometimes have room for an extra trail horse or two. I never know.
If you are interested, PM me and I will send you the 4-H leader's phone number and you can contact her directly for more information and reservations.
