I know it's a little late... But better late than never!
HPT's first "Ride Gala" on August 9th was a great success! We had many friends old and new come out and enjoy the trails, people and organization that make HPT great.
We started the afternoon with 5 different rides from kid's and beginners to fast and furious! Our intermediate "Middle Ring" ride was biggest ride of the day, and shortly after starting the HPT "Ride Guides" figured out that the ride would be more fun for all if they split into smaller groups to target the kind of trails that everbody would be comfortable on.
The Women's Ride, Kid's Ride and the Advanced "Big Ring" ride all had smaller groups which was good to help focus on the kind of riding that each group enjoyed.
After the riding was done, everybody got to enjoy a great dinner courtesy of Ciatti's of Onalaska! The food was excellent and enjoyed by all! All of the kids from the Beginner and Kid's rides also got to pick out a toy from the "HPT Toy Box" after they were good and tired from riding.
Once everybody had gotten their fill of food and refreshments a few people headed down to Coon Valley to see HPT's very own volunteer extraordinaire Chris Bonelli play with his band "Heavy Water" at the Stockyard Grill & Saloon.
We hope everbody had a great time and hope to see you back for future HPT Events including the next Trail Fest/Ride Gala on Saturday, September 6th!
