  June Rescue of the Month

Hope in the Valley Equine Rescue:

Tango_Jan2016_leftMeet Tango, a red roan paint born in 2013. Tango has one blue eye and one brown eye. He has a great disposition, is easy to catch, and is fun to ride. With 60 days of training, Tango needs an intermediate rider; he can still be a little spooky and stubborn.

A Timely Reminder from AQHA and
Equine Land Conservation Resource

Riding on trails that are wet can damage trails. Rain softened surfaces are vulnerable to use immediately after rainfall events. Please allow trails time to dry before adventuring out. Do your part by modeling appropriate behavior and best practices.

 KHC Spring Trail Ride
Experiences Kanopolis Lake Trails

SS850006

Though Mother Nature tried her best to discourage it, over 50 avid trail riders enjoyed the unique trails at Kanopolis Lake, April 30. The day was cool and misty, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of those who were Kanopolis novices and others who already considered these trails their favorite in Kansas! Due to rains on Friday, the Saturday ride left camp at Noon and returned to camp about 4pm, where former KHC board member Steve Lindsay had a wonderful meal prepared. The Director of the National Drovers Hall of Fame in Ellsworth, Jim Gray, was our guest; following dinner, he shared colorful stories of the SS850118history of the area. Steve provided hot biscuits and gravy on a cool, misty Sunday morning, and 14 of the true die-hards headed out for a 3-hour ride. A big thank you to our trail leaders and outriders, Richard & Tracy McIntire, Ron Woods, Ron Hubbard, and KHC President Justin Janssen, for keeping our riders safe. We heard several comments from first-time riders at Kanopolis, who were excited to make plans to return. That’s our goal of promoting our Kansas public parks that welcome equestrians!
