Glenn County Calif.-- The Glenn County Sheriff's Posse is preparing to saddle-up for it's 28th Annual Poker Ride.  It takes place Saturday, April 7th on the beautiful Eames Ranch in elk Creek, on the eastern side of the Coastal Range.

Sign-ups are at 8 a.m., with the 1st riders leaving at 9 a.m. and the last rider out by 10 a.m. The rain date is Sunday, April 8th.


There will be beautiful belt buckles as prizes for "High Hand", $50 for 2nd Best "Hand" and $25 for 3rd Best. The ride is $30 per rider, two riders to a team and includes a delicious tri tip lunch.

It's all a benefit for the Glenn County Sheriff's Posse, which formed in 1955  to promote and preserve horsemanship in Glenn
County. Over the years the mission of the posse has expanded to include community service; western events; search and rescue; parades; high school scholarships; providing for the needy; and assisting other equestrian groups.

The posse owns and operates a five acre equestrian facility in Orland, that's used for a variety of
equestrian events. It's available to groups wanting to host horsemanship events.

For more information call (530) 865-5510 or email gcsposse@yahoo.com.  You can also visit The Glenn County Sheriff's website.
