10 am – Noon
Saturday, November 9th
With Fall upon us, we are celebrating cooler weather with a meet and greet down at the Equestrian Center. Join us Saturday, November 9th anytime from 10 am – Noon for a casual meet and greet of PWS Wranglers and Ranch Horses.
Meet the new members of the PWSHOA team, Alison Ritz and James Leshikar who will be guiding trail rides this Fall and expanding the menu of horse services to also include lessons. All of the ranch horses will be at the barn and you can get to know each one by name and hear more about their personalities. Arena riding will also be available to all visitors. So if you have not ridden before and would prefer a nice introduction to our riding program or a picture with the ranch horses, this is a great opportunity to do so.
Look for an expanded menu of trail rides, lesson opportunities and how to schedule a ride this Fall.

A little about Allison Ritz:
"My name is Alison Ritz. I am 22 years old and currently living in Buchanan Dam, Texas.I was born in Houston and although I was born in the city, I am definitely a country girl at heart. When I was 12 years old, we moved to the beautiful hill country town of Leakey, Texas; population 439. This is when I discovered my love for horses. I began working at a trail riding stable that owned 33 horses, where I was immersed in the horse world and began soaking up all the information I could. By the end of my 5 years there, I was the lead wrangler and running the place at only 18 years old. Since then, I have acquired much more experience working with numerous horse owners, doing various riding clinics and now own a horse of my own; but trail riding is something I have truly missed. That being said, I am very excited about being a part of the team here at Walnut Springs and getting to know each and every one of you!"
