Fun and Education at "The Buckle"
What a combination. Having fun and learning at the same time. That’s what life always should be like. Oops, *as I climb off my soap box* Silver Buckle is having a Fall Festival and Open House on Saturday, October 11th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. If you haven’t been there before or if it has been awhile since you have been out there, come see ‘the ranch’. There will be tours of the ranch, free pumpkins for the kids, hay rides and pony rides, a petting zoo and hay scramble. They will be previewing their new trail course and doing demos on roping and cow play - ranch sorting, breakaway roping, steer dobbing, and basic gaming. Saturday will be the introduction to their Horse U. As part of Horse U, Harris Statema, a rep. from LMF feed will be talking about what to look for when your buying hay, Renee Tucker, will be talking about equine Chiropractic and Acupuncture, Brent Skill, a local saddle maker, will be talking about what to look for when buying used western tack, Liz Barnard, a local trainer, will talk about readiness for horse ownership and Pat Brown of Ripley’s Horse Aide Foundation will be talking about horse owner responsibilities. There will be things for kids and adults, horse people and people who think they might like to have a horse and just plain fun things to see and do. If you don’t come out for any other reason, come out for your chance to enter in the free drawing for $100 gift card from Wilco. Come on out and see what’s happening at ‘The Buckle’ and support a great local program. There will even be cocoa and treats. Silver Buckle is located in Brush Prairie 11611 NE 152nd Ave. 360-260-8932
