MN Riders come HERE! And any other riders close to MN

Recommended Posts

Hey guys just saw this, I would love to do the camping trip, but am horseless. I would still love to meet some BB's though. I am in Duluth, but am willing to drive, Black bear is a fun, I have never been to the one in Hinckly before.

Its super fun...and ifyou dont have a horse...someone may be able to bring an extra. I should have another one by then..and my Bucky is a good horse...so I could always bring them both..then you can be included in the camp out!! [Huggy]

Depending on when we do it I may be in Fargo or the TCs but I'm willing to drive- so location isn't that big of a deal but reds offer sounds pretty inviting...

I'm here! I saw this topic, but just didn't get around to looking in!

spanish, you are in Grand Rapids??? We are close to each other then! I thought you were in International Falls?

I can meet for a pre-meet anytime, well, any weekend, and probably anywhere. As far as the trail ride, I might need a horse. I'm ashamed to admit I haven't gotten Rosie to the trail ride point yet. I have a trailer, but have never trailered a horse and my truck is not set up for trailer brakes.

I know...I've been lazy and bad... [Embarrassed]

ETA: Black Bear Casino is about an hour and a half drive from me, and GC at Hinkley is about 2 and a half hours.

Oh boy. If only I had a horse, would WI resident be welcome to join in? I am in Spooner & only 1 hour from Rock Creek.

If you are looking for a place to ride try Jay Cook State Park. Beautiful area w/ trails.(I grew up in the Twin Ports)but I am not sure if they have equine friendly trails.

Told the hubby about you all wanting to get together for a weekend ride, & that I really, really need that horse. Maybe that day will come within a year or two.

Have fun.

Spanish, I was born in Grand Rapids and my mom's family still lives in Hill City!

Redneck, I know EXACTLY where you live. I live in Zimmerman and went to Princeton schools.

I would love to go, but I do not have a horse. There is another buddy close to there too, Stars_Morab lives in Dayton. I ride her horse Issac twice a week as she is expecting and is not riding these days.

Sounds like it could be a fun get-together!

Of course you cheeseheads are invited! I'll be sure to bring the crackers [Crazy] . Wild Rose..I'm from Int'l Falls, but have moved to grand rapids for college. I believe you may know my aunt and uncle? They are from Hibbing also. As for a meeting place...I think it may be a gerneral agreement on a casino..if that is alright with everyone else? Dec. 1st sounds great...we can celebrate my birthday! yay! And of course..anyone elses [big Grin] So..does Black Bear Casino sound alright with everyone. And I'm more than happy to carpool people..so anyone close to me..would like to pitch in some gas and just take one car..we can take my Jeep. It's 4x4 and i can fit 4 other people with me [big Grin] Great sound system in it too..we can have our own little party on the way [Yay][Yay]

Just saw this...I'm west of downtown Mpls - about 25 miles. Serendell is south suburbs.

I'd be game if it was Grand Casino Mille Lacs (and I'd probably drag Serendell with me).

And I agree with Serendell about Crow Hassan. Awesome trails and there are 2 campgrounds. Of course, I'm a little partial as I board across the street from there!

You ladies have a great time, only trouble with being male horse lover, we are so out numbered.

Railroad Woman, I've been to the Spooner Rodeo many times, I sit about 75-80 miles south of you. I've heard PASOLOVER talk about you, her and I rode together 3 times this past year. PD

Farah - I keep meaning to ask, do I know you? I think I might... Where you in a Saddle Club with serrendell? ( I know I spelled that wrong) Cause if you were then I KNOW I know you....

What's your horses name? If you are who I think you are, I would know by that...

Have to forgive me, as sometimes I am SO blonde, even though I'm a brunette.

Oh, I see. I know I read where you said you were from the Falls.

I think I'd take my own vehicle, probably the truck cause I like driving it. Unless Hubby wants to come and gamble (and stay away from us...hee hee). Then I wouldn't have to drive home in the dark!

from the looks of it.. Either of the grand casinos would be a more central location.. unless someone has a better idea...

(sorry if i've missed some of you.. just let me know and i'll add ya in)

Hey! I'm jumping in on this thread a bit late! I'd love to try to get out next spring for a good ride! I'm sure there would be several takers out at my barn as well.

I'd prefer Hinckley to Mille Lacs, but could probably make either work. Of course Black Bear is also fine, but I know that it isn't very central.

Hey, cool map! [big Grin] Hinkley is a bit farther for me, but I agree, it's more midway.

Sundowner is the farthest south, and I am the farthest north...do we get a prize? [big Grin]

I'm right smack dab in the middle! I'm just north of the metro about 25 min. I'm about 5 min north of 94 in maple grove. On the other side of county rd 81 in Dayton. Right on the border of Elm creek park reserve.

Stars, I think wed get in trouble if we brought horses into the casino... [ROTFL] So I don't think being "spaghetti Sauce" would have any effect on whether you could come or not! [Wink]

CJF & I can be in Hinkley by 7p.m. or so?
