Four Princeton friends started a group called R2R ( ready to ride ) and made plans to hold a fun horse related event in Princeton, raising money for a local organization at the same time.

On Saturday, June 21, R2R hosted a tracking clinic instructed by Terry Grant, the ‘Real Mantracker’. This was a great success and was booked full with 17 participants from Princeton, Penticton and the Fraser Valley. Some of the participants included members of Princeton GSAR, Keremeos GSAR and Oliver GSAR.

On Sunday, June 22, R2R hosted an 18km horseback poker ride at China Ridge Trails. 26 riders from Princeton and surrounding areas enjoyed breathtaking views, wildflowers and the beauty that our Princeton trails have to offer. Checkpoints with water and snacks for humans and horses were manned by Princeton GSAR and volunteers. Princeton GSAR also provided radio communications and gps to ensure everyone made it back to base camp safely.

A silent auction was held with donated items from many businesses in Princeton.

The weekend was a great success and raised over $1,300 for Princeton GSAR.

R2R members are Stan Smith, Margaret Ratzlaff, Anita Coppaway and Emma Jameson.
