Saturday 5th November - Valerie Williams and “E.T.” Thomas are hosting a "Fun Raiser" for Kenny Creech. They will offer 25 and 10 mile Fun Rides at Washoe Lake State Park Equestrian Area.
In support of longtime members, Kenny and Connie Creech, all proceeds from this “Fun-Raiser” will go to assist in Kenny’s rehabilitation from his long term illness and his transition back home. This is an opportunity for NEDA and NASTR, and all who have enjoyed our trails and rides over the years, to say thank you and give back to our friends. Please join us at the Kenny Creech “Fun-Raiser” to say thank you to Kenny and Connie.
Burgers & Hot Dogs will be served. Please bring side dishes or desserts or anything else to BBQ!

Despite the wild weather and the excitement from the Little Valley Fire, the Red Rock Rumble fundraiser was a huge success due the generosity of many individuals, along with those riders who chose to donate their entry in lieu of a refund.
Many thanks to ride management and their team of volunteers, along with the riders who were able to make it, for braving the weather and helping make the day a success.
NASTR is so proud of our long time member Gina Hall and her fabulous Fire Mt. Destiny, (sired by AERC Hall of fame stallion, Sierra Fadwah) for their outstanding partnership through many years of endurance riding. This will be their 15th year of competition with over 7000 miles, 2100 miles of those completed in one day 100 mile rides. They both represent the epitome of the AERC Pard'ners Award. Thank you to Beth Kauffmann, Kim Mileo and Pam Anderson for presenting the award and surprising Gina at the AERC National Awards Banquet. Congratulations Gina and Destiny, Pard'ners for life!

(Pard'ners Award: "Rider and horse perform together as a mutually bonded team. Rider and horse engender a spirit of friendship, enthusiasm and championship that makes those around them glad to have attended the ride. However competitive they may be, good sportsmanship remains their first priority. Horse and rider take care of each other. Together horse and rider personify the prevailing and abiding goal of AERC: "To finish is to win." This award was established in honor of the late Mae Schlegel and her horse Pard. The recipient receives a keepsake plaque and the names of the "pard'ners" are engraved onto a perpetual trophy." )
