Additional Notes for a Very Fun Poker Ride

There are a lot of rocks in the Los Flores Ranch staging area, so be prepared to drive over or around them. A warm-up area is available for use although the ground is hard. Helmets are required for all minors. Bring your own lunch or make arrangements to purchase on on-site. Riders will be sent out in teams of 3-5 riders. You can pick your team or be assigned to one. The ride is moderate due to a few hills. Shoes for your horse are recommended because there are some rocky spots.

You must be a member or become a member of CCCAHA to ride. Membership forms will be available onsite.
