The annual Wood Horse Trail Ride is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 16 if you’ve been wondering about it. It will start shortly after 10 a.m. from a field on the left side of E Highway (just off 76) in eastern Douglas County. A noon meal will be provided and a return trip is expected around 3-4 o’clock. We’re hoping for good riding weather and wonderful day with the horses. Join us?
