2011 Trail Ride Buckle Series Announced

For the second year, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) High Desert District and the Green River Chamber of Commerce team up to host the 2011 Trail Ride Buckle Series showcasing mustangs, but open to all breeds of horses, and riders of all ages and skill levels.  

Each event features wild horse and burro adoptions, BLM Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility tours, training demonstrations, trail rides, obstacle courses, and timed games. All events will be held at the BLM Rock Springs Wild Horse Holding Facility on Lionkol Road in Rock Springs, Wyo. beginning at 9:00 a.m. on June 18, July 16, Aug. 13, and Sept. 17. 

Year end buckles and awards will be given at the event on Sept. 17. Membership is not required to participate, but only members accumulate points toward year end buckles and awards. Non-members are eligible to receive daily prizes. The Mustang Versatility Trail Ride Buckle Series daily entry fees are $10 for members and $20 for non-members. Annual membership dues are $25 per family or $15 per individual. 

Due to the threat of the Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1), a veterinarian technician will be at the gate at the June 18 event checking health papers for all horses. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, contact Adoption Coordinator Kathi Fine, 307-352-0292, or Deb Sundberg, 307-389-6353. 

Special thanks to our sponsors: PM Auto Glass Inc., Primetime Production and Shadow Mountain Water Company of Wyoming.
