Mark your calendars for the SHTRA Annual Meeting. Potluck and Auction on Saturday, February 3rd at the Victor Township Hall at 6843 Alward Rd., Laingsburg, MI 48848. Bring a dish to pass, a friend and your table service. Donated equestrian items welcome. Hall opens at 12pm (noon), social hour directly before 2:00pm potluck. Drawings and door prizes. Optional card games later in the evening.

Nearly fifty people got to view the insides of the Rustic and Modern Cabins during the “Explore the Hollow” weekend on October 20th-22nd. SHTRA members rented both cabins with pickett poles for anyone to tie up and visit. Candy, cider and donuts were served to visitors. Thanks to Marsha Korrock and Barb Drake. These cute, cozy cabins overlook Lake Ovid and are available for equestrians to rent anytime by calling 1-800-447-2757. An access trail leads to the equestrian trail. Also on that day, a special ride on “Forbidden Trails” was allowed to “Explore” a beautiful part of the park’s bike trail that we do not have access to normally. Host Todd and Diane Ring were at the Horseman’s Staging Area cooking for the potluck, running the Poker Run and visiting with the group. Saturday held a potluck and campfire. There was a costume contest-dressing up as your favorite famous Explorer. Prizes and drawings were held. Thanks to all who helped and attended!
