What’s New: Kettle River Horse Club is up and running

The Kettle River Horse Club is now up and running in the West Boundary area.

Our first event is a HORSE-PLAY DAY on Sunday, June 12 from 10:00am to 2:00pm at the Rock Creek Fair Grounds in Rock Creek. We will have Gymkhana Games and some Mountain Trail Obstacles to come and enjoy. There will be a Potluck Luncheon as well. This is a great way to come have some family fun that won’t break the bank. To play for the day is $10 per Club Member with a family cap of $20. Club Memberships will also be available for purchase at the event. Participants will require Horse Council BC membership as well. Further info about the KRHC can be directed to the Club President Kerry Unrau at kettleriverhc@gmail.com

The KRHC is an all ages, all equestrian disciplines club that supports the growth of good horsemanship while having fun. The club is open to Western and English riders, as well as those who Drive and also Lead In hand. Maybe your new or young horse needs some exposure? If they have basic ground handling skills, then bring them along for the day and come help with the games. Many Club Members are experienced horsemen and women in various fields and if you want help with something are available also.

On the July long weekend there will be a POKER RIDE. This is set for Sunday July 3rd and will also be held at the Rock Creek Fair Grounds. The event will allow for camping at the fairgrounds, and further details will be available as they get planned, or you can join the club’s Facebook page by searching for the Kettle River Horse Club and join to follow along. This will be an all-day event, with a Poker Hand Ride, and prizes and food afterwards. Many people might choose to stay the weekend and should book with the Rock Creek Fair Grounds ahead of time for camping space and/or horse stalls, and some limited horse camping space will be available. Lots of area trails to enjoy during your time in the Boundary Country. For those costs, please contact the fair directly at 250-446-2465. For POKER RIDE event details please watch our Facebook group, or contact the KRHC.

We plan to do a HORSE-PLAY DAY each month so stay tuned for more dates. Plus, we have monthly meetings that are open to everyone, the next club meeting is at the Riverside Centre in Rock Creek on Thursday, June 9 at 7:00pm.

We hope to see lots of locals come out and play and have fun.
