2020 Salute to Service Shows

 
So much fun! I have to say that I LOVE our show weekends. Yes, it’s a lot of behind the scenes work but seeing all those happy faces make it worth it. Saturday morning we rolled into AOK to see Jeff Arabia working the arena and our ground crew setting up for our first events and our flag presentation. We honored our veterans & current service men and woman. Always such a moving ceremony to see. Let’s give a shout out to all our flag carriers:
American - Jennifer Galindo-Cole, California - Brooke Kenderick, Army - Maegan Christopher, Marines - Kaitlyn Windfelt-Marino, Navy - Tammy Pi, Air Force - Val Loera, Coast guard - Kyla Monroe, POW/MIA - Sami Mount, Tri-County Riders - Eva Christopher & the national anthem sung by KWM. TCR is the only place you can sing the national anthem while on a horse. Good job Kaitlyn!
Tri-County Riders would like to welcome Rebecca Aiello, Karlie Dudek, Meghan Foley, Paige Houchin, Chayce Milheim, Lauren Parker, Mia Penmsi and Maddison Schnittger. We are happy to have you join us!
We were up against the time crunch and managed to hustle 75 riders through by 5:00 and thanks to the Mullins Family and Pavex we had lights for awards and for prepping the arena for Sunday. Thank You!!!
Our awards for Saturday were all leg protection for our horses! Splint boots for High Point and Reserve, bling polo wraps for 3rd, standing wraps for 4th & plain polo wraps for 5th. Let’s congratulate our winners!

For those that don’t know, Barbara Ann is trying out for AGT & The Voice and has made the 2nd level for both. Her rendition of our anthem was amazing!

WOW! Congratulations to all our riders. It was such a fun weekend.
We would like to thank Cindy Elliott, Rachal Ratliff, Ben Cochran, Koran Monroe & Sean Christopher for making sure your times were recorded correctly and for announcing all day. It’s a tough job! Also a shout out to all our arena help, I know all forget someone if I list you all so I’m just going to say a HUGE thank you for standing out there all day. We are all volunteers at TCR and realize it takes a lot of hands to make it work.
TCR presented AOK Corral and the Arabia Family with a photo collage of riders to show our appreciation for opening their home to us. Thank you Jeff, Beth, Austin, Brody & Will for all you do for our club.
Well, that closes out 2020 and the 1st half of our season. Stay tuned for updates about our 2021 dates and venue. We are waiting to see what Mother Nature gives us......until then, ride hard, wear your helmets & huge your horses! See you all in 2021!
