DECHC Annual 2022 TRAIL RIDE - Sept. 24th

Save the date for DECHC’s Annual Membership Appreciation Trail Ride. It will be Saturday,
September 24th at Prairie Canyon Ranch. This is a working cattle ranch that cannot be accessed
without a special permit, which DECHC has procured. There will be no fee for this
ride as it is a member appreciation ride. Riders must be a member to ride. So if you want to
ride, be a member for $15 a year. There will be more information on this ride as the date approaches, so save the date!
