Greetings from the Famous
The Acton Rangers opened the season with the first gymkhana of the year on Sunday, March 3rd. After a rainy week, the arena was able to recover on Saturday, and the arena conditions were good to start off the season. We welcomed many returning alumni and new riders as well. A total of 48 riders participated in the 1st gymkhana of the season, competing in two separate Year End Award Divisions. Entry fees for the 2019 Acton Ranges’ Gymkhana are $5 per rider per class, however, novice competitors (12 and under) are only $2.50 per rider per class.
The horses were ready to go this month, as the rains had kept many of them cooped up. By the looks of the results, we are going to have another year of exciting competition in many of the divisions this year. If you missed the first gymkhana, you will not want to miss the next one, as everyone has a chance to win a saddle or buckle.
We are expecting a sunny day for our April 7th gymkhana, as we have 7 more gymkhanas’ this season, and it is early enough for everyone to have a chance for the saddles and buckles. As a reminder, our gymkhanas are on the 1st Sunday of the month from March to October, and the awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, November 3rd at the Acton community center.
The Acton Community Center will be hosting their annual Duckie Drop during our May 5th gymkhana. Make plans to be there as there was over $1,000 in prize money last year. Don’t miss your chance to have the winning duck!
All us Rangers look forward to seeing you at our next Gymkhana on Sunday, April 7th, at the Vincent Hill Arena.
Remember, Ride hard, shoot straight, and always tell the truth!!
