2017 Award Banquet Recap!

The Tri-County Riders Year End Awards Banquet was a huge success. 120 riders, their families & friends joined us at the Monterey County Sheriffs Posse Grounds to celebrate each others successes. We were also joined by many of our generous sponsors! Thank you for supporting us, AOK Corral, Arabia's Overkill, Cirkl Specialized Training, Clayton Clark Grading, Joe Elliott Whole Horse System, Fowler Construction, Keyes Drywall & Painting, Lincoln Street Radiator, Lone Star Riding Academy, Modern Equine, MCSP, The Mount Family, Pizza Factory, Sparkle Nā€™ Spurs & Vita Floor USA.

TCR would also like to welcome our newest board member, Jeffery Monroe. I think he was a little shell shocked but now, after a little heart tune up, he is ready for the task.

Each rider that signed up for our 2016/2017 received a custom pair of Professionals Choice splint boots in their choice of color & a bag of Mrs. Pastures Cookies for Horses from Royal Oaks Feeds. Our riders receiving awards were:

The night was filled with surprises! Zetta Wareham had a plan.... a plan to surprise one of her follow competitors with an amazing gift. Since she and Emmalee Keyes tied for 1st place at Firecracker Frenzy, Zetta GAVE EMMALEE HER SADDLE! It as a touching moment that everyone got to share in. Wow!  BUT WAIT....That's not all. Apparently Jeff Arabia also had a plan.... He and Dennis had made plans to surprise 2 special people in his life. First ,Jeff asked Brody if it was ok with him to be his stepdad. Brody said YES. Well, you can guess what Jeff's next question was. He got down on one knee & asked Beth Krickeberg to marry him. Everyone held their breath and she said YES! I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. Congratulations Jeff & Beth!

We wrapped up the night with a special gift for Ron & Ramona Thornton. They do so much for TCR. They allow us to ride at the MCSP facility, they make improvements all the time & best of all they make sure the ground is SAFE! Once again....Thank You.

With that we wrapped up the night. Tri-County Riders wishes to thank each and every person who has helped make this club such a success. We want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year & we can't wait until our 1st show of 2018! January 20, 2018, weather permitting. so, until then, cross your fingers & hug your horses. Love you all!
