It's almost here!

The time for the biggest Horse event in Martinez is nearly upon us! The thirteenth annual Battle of the Barns! 

This is a Charity Event that the Martinez Horsemen's Association has been putting on to help Xenophon Therapeutic Riding Center in Orinda California. 
It takes us all year to get the thing together, and now the day is nearly here. I still have so much to do! 

The banners needs to be hung at the main intersection of town, the Team Signs need to be written, the food purchased, the volunteers sorted into groups,the flags pressed, etc....
I am afraid that this year the donations will be smaller than last year, but I am encouraged to say that we still do have local merchants that have donated some really great prizes; Dinners for two, spa days, gas cards, headstalls, books, t-shirts,plants,candy, Well- you get the idea! 
Did I mention that everyone rides in costumes? This years Theme is Disney!

I wish every one of you could come and be a part of this special day! I know you will all be right next to me in spirit- and of course I will take photos and post them for you all!
