It looks like the 3rd time is a charm! Tri-County Riders finally had our MISMATCH SHOW! It was worth the wait and all the prep work by Dennis Cole, Ron & Ramona Thornton paid off. The arena was PERFECT. We had 65 riders and some very shaggy horses join us for a beautiful 78 degree day. TCR would like to welcome the Borland Family, Colton, Kailey, Maddi, Michelle, Maleah & Tim, Kenly Bradshaw, Ima Fanning, Hannah Lopez & Lettie Reich. Welcome back Amanda Grant, Ashley Nelson & Jessica Tamura. Hope you all had a great day with TCR!
Since this was a rescheduled show several of our “regulars” were missing. Thank you Jeff Arabia, Beth Krickeberg, Cindy Elliott, Koren MOnroe, Shilah Mullins, Mike Pacheco, Tim Borland, Sarah Luke, Kaitlyn Windfeldt-Marino and I am sure many more for stepping up and pitching in We were running 3 arenas and there was always someone ready to jump in when asked. We have great volunteers who realize that we are 100% volunteer run and all pitch in for the love of the riders.
Our arena crew, Dennis, Phil Crouch, Morgan Crouch, Jeffery Monroe, Maegan Grimes Christopher, Lori Marino Tassahia Agaupe, hustled to get all the arenas ready. Meanwhile, in the booth, Deborah Monigold-Crouch, Kelli Oberto, Beth Windfeldt-Marino & Jennifer Galindo made sure all the paperwork was in order to get the show up and running.
Right off the bat we had some amazing runs in quads and speedball. Woo Hoo, riders and their horses were feeling good!
