Here are a few of the things going on in the South Logan County or surrounding area in the coming days.
Hit The Trail
Organizers are calling it the Stomp off the ice Spring Break ride. Hosted by Urban Acres Sanctuary, the ride will be held at 10 a.m., on Saturday, March 25 at Knoppers Ford Recreation Area near Booneville.
It will be a small two to three hour guided ride to get the horses back in shape and get ready for more trail rides to come! Meet at Urban Acres about 8 a.m. and follow or meet at the Light House Church on 71 South as the group heads out, or if you know where the Equine parking is you can meet there at Knoppers Ford (Jack Creek). It’s a beautiful place to ride for the day.
Organizers say bring a sack lunch, but there will be water bottles and snacks. The ride will stop midway to eat. The cost is $5 per adults, with kids being free.
