This Weekend's Picks, May 23-26, 2014

New this week!

Instead of re-listing all the weekend's events from the Big Calendar in a weekly post, I'm going to highlight an interesting horse activity or two each week.  But don't forget to look at the full calendar (to the right), because there are many great activities from which to choose!

This Memorial Day weekend, I'm loving the Troy Area Horseman's Association shows.  This hard-working club offers pleasure and gaming shows on several summer weekends at Alparon Park in Troy.  They have a great facility and are family friendly.  You can ride games on Saturday, then go back for ring classes on Sunday.

Whatever you do, have a great time with your horse this Memorial Day weekend!
