About Trot For TA TAs
The Annual PTR Trot for TA TAs Buckle Event is open to all ages, horses and rider ability and non-riding family and friends as well! Get yourself and your pony dressed up in pink and help us continue to raise money for our local ladies and men fighting and recovering from cancer. 100% of the proceeds from the event help them feed their animals, keep their lights on and anything else they may need during this time. This fun, energizing event provides BUCKLES, ribbons and prizes including best dressed pink outfits!
In 2015 Sandy Clayton, a PTR Member and a Breast Cancer Survivor, opened her family ranch and obstacle course to us and the Trot For TA TAs Obstacle Challenge Event began. In a very short time, we were at full capacity with 80 riders and many more spectators, judges, and volunteers. We had wonderful donations of prizes, donation of Silent Auctions Items from the public and lots of hard work from the entire PTR Board to pull it off!
2016 was our 2nd year and the buzz was back! PTR took it to 89 Riders with 30 on the waitlist! Sold out again. Recipients from the prior year came to share their stories of how much our funds helped them buy food, help their animals and keep their business running until they were back on their feet, and right then we all knew we knew were we helping out our community in a big way. We continue to fund recipients today as their needs are brought to our attention and we hope to continue to do so with this event. In 2017, we moved our event to Casey Jones Park, supported by the Silver J Ranch, and we had more than 100 riders participate in a full day of trail, equestrian games, and barrel racing. In 2018, we moved to an indoor venue, thanks to a sponsorship from Messer Event Center, and had even more trail obstacles and a full 4D barrel racing event.
2019 will be our 5th annual Trot for TA TAs and we are hoping to continue this great tradition of providing a fun event while raising money for locals in need.
