Take a Trail Ride down “Mane Street”.  Lois and Clark (Free Rein Center’s “spokes horses”) will be on hand to greet you.  Mother/Daughter duo “Hunnilicious” will entertain us.  Connestee Falls Chefs will serve their fine food.  Live and silent auctions will feature some great experiences and items, like:
