Poker Run, Decatur, TX. Oct. 27th.
H.O.R.S.E.S. in Texas is having a Poker Run on Saturday, October 27th in Decatur, Texas at the LBJ National Grasslands. In a Poker Run, riders pass by 7 stations along the trail and collect one playing card. When everyone gets back to camp, whoever has the best poker hand wins.
At this writing, plans for the grand prize and other prizes are still in the works. The date and location are firm and final, though. We're trying to get a $700.00 gift certificate for the saddle of the winner's choice as grand prize. For those of you traveling to the event, saddles are available online with free shipping via UPS anywhere in the U.S.
The trail iself will be about 10 miles long, very well maintained and well marked because it's normally used as part of an Endurance trail so it's maintained by the Texas American Distance Riders Association. Camping is free, should you choose to arrive early or stay an extra day and enjoy the 3,000 + acres of equestrian trails & over 100 miles of marked horse trails. Please bring your own fire wood.
Refreshments will not be provided but there will be a restroom and clean water for the horses, shade trees and established campsites for your comfort. No cabins or showers available. Please contact Antoinette Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and reservations.
