Spring! Daylight savings time! So happy to gain that hour of daylight after work. It makes all the difference being able to get a ride in after work during the week.

Some Recent Programs and Activities
The annual Winter Holiday party was held on Saturday, February 2 at Kristin and Mark’s. I would say there were at least 25–30 in attendance. The food was terrific, of great variety, and plenty of it. The house looked beautiful and very festive. The raffle was a big success raising $345 toward the replacement of the Alligator Crossing bridge which was washed away by the September 2018 flood. Thank you to Kristin and Mark for hosting the gathering and Kristin for creating the Farm Basket for the raffle. A huge thank you to Liz and Jim Kennedy for their generous donation of lobsters for the raffle and to Judy Bosco for her donation of a photo enlargement. Congratulations to all the raffle winners!
On February 15 the Pizza and Planning Party was bril-liant! I was so happy to have so much participation! See Marlisa’s minutes on pages 5–6. We got a lot done on the calendar. If you look at the calendar on the last page you will see that we have listed events from other local horse organizations as well, in order to try and avoid conflicts and let you all know about options! Gina McManus kindly offered to become a board member at large for LCRVHC replacing Emma Saunders. And Beverly Torell let us know that her plans to relocate to Colorado are off so she is still willing and able to be president of the BPC! I am so grateful to all the board members and officers who help keep these two great sister organizations going! We are always looking for board members for the LCRVHC and the BPC. If you are interested and able to serve the horse community in this way please let us know!
On Sunday, February 17, LCRVHC held a member only ride at Hammonassett. We’ve been riding a lot at Hammonassett this winter. It seems like the only place we can avoid the mud and ice. See pictures on
Please see the Upcoming Events box on the first page and the Calendar on the last page for more activities. We always need ideas for the calendar!
I hope to see you soon!
PS In 2018 membership was down a bit. It’s really a bargain. Only $15 annually for individual, $25 for family. If you have friends you ride with or know people who are interested in trail riding with small groups or working on local trails, spread the word. And please, I can’t say it often enough, tell us what you want to do as a club!
