Mesquite Trail Ride
Day Three - Saturday, September 23rd, 2017
Early Risers 7am breakfast again… that’s right you know what you’re doing so go ahead and do it.
Up not too early for those who went to bed late last night will head out for the organized ride, don’t worry you’ll be back in time for all the festivities this afternoon.
Lunch – you’re on your own today, unless you can get your neighbor to make you a sandwich. We all know you will be busy preparing your Equine for the Equine Hat Competition. Don’t forget your own costume, birthday suits are not allowed. (At least that's what they told me after trying it one year.)
The parade will begin early afternoon for the Equine Hat Competition. If you are not participating you’ll want to arrive early for the best seats along the fence line. Be sure to bring your own seat as those will not be provided. And if it’s sunny you may want to bring your shade too, and since I’m at it.. go ahead and bring your adult beverage. If you are participating, thank you so much for something to look at, otherwise we’d all look pretty silly staring at the empty arena.
Immediately following the Equine Hat Competition will be our Famous Gymkhana. Events are still to be decided there will be no prior knowledge so no one can practice. We like living on the edge during this competition.
