Apalousey Ride Benefits Museum

scenic stop The 10th Annual Apalousey All-Breed Trail Ride and Dutch Oven Dinner, hosted by the Appaloosa Museum board of directors, was dedicated to raising funds for improving museum facilities. This event was held at the beautiful Pony Club Grounds on George Hatley’s ranch near Deary, Idaho. Approximately 40 riders (and a bunch of other suppertime guests) participated this past weekend. It’s a real toss-up to determine which is more enjoyable, the scenic ride or the fabulous Dutch oven dinner. Okay, it’s not that difficult. The dinner is the big attraction. blocks

But the opportunity to mingle with George and Iola, loyal trail riders and long-time friends of the breed is a special treat as well. Folks were encouraged to shake loose from a bit of their money during silent and live auctions. The weather was perfect and the gathering proved once again that Mr. Appaloosa and the museum have plenty of true friends.

Oh yeah, in the middle photo are King Rockhill, Museum Board President, and Alice, his trail pal wife. The other two are scenes along the trail. Although they seem to be pointed in all directions, they’re really just resting.
