Play Day 2013 was held at Thundering Hooves Farm on Sunday, September 29, 2013. Mother nature provided us with a spectacular day of sunny temperate weather and everyone enjoyed the food, company, and games. Check out the pictures on ASGRA's FaceBook page.
The horse speed events and roping was exciting with 13 contestants going for the pay window, 12 in poles, 11 in barrels, and 8 in flags, 10 in calf roping on foot. Patrick Hunter acted as arena director, while Mike Lentz was the arena crew coordinator, time keeper, judge and announcer. We had a great crew of volunteers and spectators joining in the fun and camaraderie.
