Think rodeo!

Well with fall creeping up you might be looking for ideas to do on the weekends. Here’s something you may have done a long time ago or something you have never done– Trail Riding. Think of it … long walks in the woods with new friends where you just sit and let something else do the walking.

Join the members of Keystone State Gay Rodeo Association (KSGRA) as they host their family friendly trail rides. KSGRA hosts a monthly trail ride throughout the states parks in our area. All are welcome to come out and ride.

Don’t own a horse or never been on a horse, don’t worry lessons go with the ride and horses will be available to reserve. Depending on the time of the ride lunch is included or dinner with a bon fire to end the night. What a great way to spend a Saturday.

The next ride is Saturday August 26th 11:30 am at Fowlers Hollow State Park New Germantown, Pennsylvania The ride will be approximately two-and-a-half to three hours.

Cost is $15 per adult, $8 per child ages 6 to 12, children under five free. Lunch is included and will be served around 11:30 am and ride will head out after lunch. All proceeds benefit Keystone State Gay Rodeo Association.

If riding is not your thing but you like to watch the speed and beauty of a horse join us Sunday August 20th at 11 am at Spring Valley County Park in Glen Rock, Pennsylvania for the KSGRA Open Gaming Show. Competitors will be competing in several horse related events from the Keystone State Gay rodeo including Barrel Racing, Pole Bending, and Flag Racing. Another rodeo related event that we will be hosting that day is Goat Dressing. For Goat Dressing, you don’t have to know how to ride a horse to compete and anyone from any age is welcome to participate. Goat dressing is a laugh-out-loud fun event where a team of two people compete in a relay race to put underwear on a goat. The fastest team wins prizes and money. The KSGRA gaming show is a family friendly event and all are welcome to compete or just watch. Food will be available to purchase and admission for spectators is free.
