  • 2019 Poker Ride

    Ride horses to help save horses. The Buffalo Bill Saddle Club and the Intermountain Horse Association are teaming up for a Poker Ride to benefit the Harmony Equine Center. The Poker Ride will be held on Saturday, September 7 at the Alderfer Three Sisters Open Space in Evergreen, Colorado. Here is how it works: you ride your horse to 5 stations along the trail. At each station you pick a playing card and a volunteer records it on your card. At the end, the participants select prizes from an array of horse related merchandise. Best hand picks first, then the second best hand picks, and so on. Registration to ride is $45 for adults, it includes lunch, and you get to pick the length of ride you wish to be on. Discount prices are available for seniors, minors, and families. View flier. Register to ride today.
