Saturday, October 17th – POKER RIDE:

A benefit for Great Escape Mustang Sanctuary – POKER RIDE!

Join us for a unique Poker Ride experience as you ride our private ranch amongst our Sanctuary herd of Mustangs! The ride will follow a route through our Sanctuary land where you can encounter the magic of the wildlife, varying terrain, a wild herd of horses, and our 5-acre obstacle challenge course. Along the route, you’ll encounter 7 checkpoints. At each checkpoint, you’ll get to learn about Mustangs in America as you answer a trivia question about mustangs to earn your card. By the end of the ride, you’ll have 7 cards and the riders with the best poker hands win!

Ride at your own pace – this is not a race! There will be outriders along the course to assist folks if needed.
