NCK Saddle Club Benefit CTC Ride - 10-03-2009

 

Howdy Folks,

 

There is a perfectly beautiful place to ride near Concordia Kansas and it`s called the Hanson Ranch. Your host, Scott Studt, has marked an eight mile trail through the prettiest section of this 800 acre ranch - And invites you all to come ride, take in the scenery, and build up those ACTHA points! Scott told me he`s been darn careful to create a trail that`ll take you through groves of majestic trees and over open pastures. He even mixed in a few shallow water crossings.

 

They`ve got plenty of primitive camping, if you want to set up at the ride site. Or if you`d rather have hook ups and such, they have `em, just a short piece down the road at the NCK Saddle Club. And if you want to stay at a motel in town, you can do that too; just put your horse up in a stall, worry free. Plan on arriving Friday night, get settled in, and go to bed, early. Saturday`s agenda is packed danged full! (It`s okay to drift in Saturday morning too.)

 

 

You`re on your own for breakfast. Spend the morning groomin` your horse, checkin` tack, visiting with old friends and makin` new ones. But don`t miss lunch! Scott and some ranch folks are puttin` out a feed of Sloppy Joes, beans, chips and coffee. Take in the ride briefing at noon, hit the trail at one. Take your time on the trail; he`s arranged eight obstacles, so this first ACTHA sanctioned ride in the area will be a great place to start to learnin` the ropes, buildin` ACTHA points for you and your horse… And winnin` prizes! He`s got some good ones folks!

 

 

When you get back to camp, and finish up braggin` and swaggerin`, and tendin` to your horse - hustle to the campfire where Scott and the crew will be cookin` up homemade Chili and cinnamon roles.

 

 

Then settle in for a night of classic entertainment!!

 

Everyone attending this ride is in for a humdinger of a treat! Charlie Hanson, himself, live and in person, is gonna put on a show them city folks in New York

would pay a fancy penny ta see!! He`s fixin` to pick his guitar, sing a whole passel of old time cowboy songs, recite cowboy poetry, and if you all pester him hard enough, Charlie may even tell a tall tale or two of his youth! Scott says as the night wears on more local musicians plan on stopping by to liven the place up. Hot Dang what a night!

 

 

But Folks, it ain`t over. Scott and Charlie invite you to stay on for the Co-Ed Rodeo the NCK Saddle Club is holding on Sunday.

 

 

There ya go; this will be one heck of a weekend. Don`t miss it, have yourself a great time, while you help out the Horse Rescues!!

 

 

Gitty Up!

The Hanson Ranch encompasses over  800+ acres of beautiful rolling hills of Kansas. There will be beautiful shaded areas encompassed by several different varieties of trees, shallow water crossings, possible sightings of deer, turkey, and the occasional cow-calf pair. This will be the first ACTHA ride in Kansas. We hope to make it a ride you will put on your calendar for each year to come. You will have two choices of campsites. You can stay on site at the ranch with primitive campsites or you can stay 10 miles north of the ranch at the NCK Saddle Club arena with electrical hookups. Approximately 30 hookups. Stalls available if preregistered otherwise will need to tie to trailer.

Remember up to 50% of ACTHA`s proceeds go to Horse Charities. The $$ made in Kansas stays in Kansas and heaven knows some of our rescues can use the help! Another ride will be announced soon in Emporia and at many other locations within striking distance of Concordia so we all will have a shot at riding for the $25,000 in year end rider prizes.

There will be great prizes at the ride so c`mon out and have some real fun in this "Casual Competition"...it`s not a timed event and with 8 fun obstacles you`ll have plenty of time to smell the roses and chat with friends!
