What an amazing start to the Tri-County Riders 2019/2020 season! We kicked it off with our Super Hero & Back to School shows! Over the entire weekend we had over 140 riders! WOW!
Saturday began with a glorious break from the heatwave most riders had been experiencing. The fog rolled in and it stayed most of the day, keeping us, & our horses, nice and cool. The TCR board had been busy preparing for this show and wanted everything to be just right. The arena crew was prepping the ground & setting our first 2 events while our booth crew signed in the 65 riders who came out to show their super hero pride!
TCR would like to welcome Jesika Ayala, Shylah Ayzman, Shannon Casci-Hall, Mckayla Rose Deal, Amy Olivetti, Grace Olivetti, Mia Ramos, Cher Rogers, Jamie Rojas, Sophie Rojas, Julie Stoffers, Hailey Thomas & Layla Wilder. Thank you all for joining us!
Our Super Hero theme was well represented by Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Captain America, the Hulk & many more! Some of the costumes were super creative! The awards were of course, super hero themed with saddle pads for Highpoint, insulated 30oz tumblers for Reserve, cooling helmet liners for 3rd & 4th & 5th were kits to make your horse a super hero! Let’s congratulate our winners!

There are a few key people we need to thank for their dedication this weekend Cindy Elliott, Melissa Beers, Sean Christopher, Ceal Craig, Warren Sullivan, Matt Mullins, Brent Burger & Fred Woodard. These folks, not part of the board of directors or even riders, worked all day to ensure we had a great show. Plus all the volunteers who stepped up to set a pole, a barrel, a flag or opened a gate. Please thank them!!!! Without these volunteers, we couldn’t have these shows!
Sunday morning held a promise of sunshine! Still nice & cool but sunny! Perfect for our Back To School Show! Some riders rocked their school colors while others dressed in their favorite school colors! Thank you Ron & Ramona Thornton for the great ground, amazing facility & always making us feel welcome. We love to call the Monterey County Sheriffs Posse Grounds our HOME!
Oh! Did we mention that #KSBWTVActionNews8 came and did a story on us? They did an interview with Jennifer & several of our riders & took footage of Big T! Bree Kalino, Kyla Monroe & Abby Loera were all on the 6 o’clock news! How fun!
