Upcoming Events

SW Events

Barrel Racing

Well, we are starting to wrap up the season here at the Wranglers. We only have a few events left throughout October, but what is left should be a lot of FUN! After the last official event at the arena we are planning to start taking down the existing fencing in preparation for the new pipe fencing we will be installing. We will need a lot of help in order to get the old fencing out and the new fencing in, so get ready to get in those work hours if you haven't already done so. If you have gotten your work hours in for the year....well, get ready to come out and help anyway!! Not only will we be working on the fencing, but we are also planning to have the arena professionally leveled and prep'd. We should a great arena to start next season! But as I said, we still have a few FUN events coming up...

Join us on for our second Open Trail Challenge Schooling Show & Clinic of the year. There is always a surprise obstacle at these shows, and they are always a great time!

For those adventurous soles out there, we have set the weekend of for Horse Campingat Stuart's Camp in Pt. Reyes. Riding out at Pt. Reyes is always a beautiful experience. Folks need to make their own reservations. If you can't go out for the weekend, you may want to consider heading out for ride on Saturday to meet up with any folks who are camping.

And thanks to Corena Butler, with help from Vicki Clark, we will be holding our annual Halloween Playday again this year. It will be on . So bring your ponies out for a great day of fun! And don't forget the costumes!!
