    Thanks everyone!! I'm thinking we'll do a bonfire if its not too hot that day (this is south Texas), and the ladder golf tournament sounds fun!

    Kayella, you bought Henny! Cool! I was there working when yall picked him up! How is he doing?! Sarah told me he had an accident? I hope all is well with him, he was such a sweetie! And yes 4 hours is a long ways to have to walk the trail with your baby, but I'm sure he'd handle it like a champ if y'all did come!

    Oh yeah, I remember you! He did have an accident. He was kicked in the head the night before thanksgiving and suffered some neurological damage. He's almost made a 100% recovery though thanks to my vets! :) he's still a little sweetheart, even if he does have his stubborn hissy fits sometimes haha.

    This is a little bit different, but same idea...We have a cutting clinic up in the mountains in Oregon every summer for a weekend (summer cow pasture)..Its pretty primitive camping, and we end up having a lot of down time in the evenings. We started doing a baseball (or wiffleball) game after dinner and tried to get every one involved. It ended up being a huge hit and was so much fun!!

    This is why I never got very interested in ACTHA. Why trailer my horses 5 hours away to a ride and only ride for an hour. When I competed I found NATRC to be more interesting because you rode for 50 miles over two days. Seemed to make the effort of going to a competition worth it.

    I sponsored a NATRC ride for several years. We had lots of things in the evening. Usually put on a dinner for those who didn't want to cook after all day in the saddle. Along with dinner we would usually find some entertainment. A Cowboy Poet, somebody who play a little music. We also usually went over what tomorrows ride would look like, Review the trail map, Maybe even a few comments from the judges as to what they saw on the Saturday ride. At the rides we had one smaller group of folks who actually set up a inflatable hot tub and would fill it with water and you see that group soaking in hot water drinking their favorite beer into the late hours.

    Personally, Dinner and the Poet was usually enough for me. After ridding 25 miles that day, and knowing that I needed to be in that saddle again at 7am the next morning and probably having a 5 hour drive home that next night after riding all day, I wanted the sleep.

    PaintedHorse, I hear ya! I did a couple of these with DH, who is kind of a beginner, but it seemed like a lot of work, driving, etc., for a little riding, plus they did not usually accept my stallion.

    The rides still seem to be doing well, though, so I suppose they are filling a niche.
