2018 Mane Event Gala

SAVE THE DATE for the 2018 Mane Event Gala …. Saturday, Oct. 13.

Join us from 6 to 10 pm in the newly remodeled Connestee Falls’ Overlook Clubhouse in Brevard (off Rte. 276, Greenville Highway.)  The theme is “Trail Ride ” so dress up in your best Western wear for an evening of good food, good fellowship and good fun. This is our major fundraiser of the year to raise money for scholarships for our riders and to keep our horses healthy and hearty.  We expect a sellout crowd again this year.


“Mane Street” will feature the Chuckwagon for restaurant certificates, the Cork Corral wine pull, great silent auction items and music by members of Pretty Little Goat. Auctioneers Duke & Bird will bring their special brand of “auctiontainment” to our live auction as they help us raise money to Fund the Herd and our spring and fall riding programs. Just as a teaser, one of those live auction items is a fishing trip with Woody Platt from the Steep Canyon Rangers (Thanks, Woody!!).
