Nevada County’s Gold Country Trails Council is pleased to announce that this year’s Poker Ride Fundraiser was again a big success. The Pioneer Trail, along with many other trails and horse camps in the Tahoe National Forest, will continue to be maintained for community enjoyment!
On July 6, Skillman Horse Camp was again the scene for happy horse riders participating in the Gold Country Trails Council annual event. This year’s ride, once again, successfully raised the funds necessary for the improvement and maintenance of the best multi-use trail system in Nevada County.
The GCTC would like to extend a huge thank you to our community businesses that supported the event: Harmony Ridge Market, SPD Markets, Safeway Markets, Sierra Saddlery, Echo Valley Ranch, Placer Farm Supply, Ridge Feed and Supply, The Fur Traders, Tour of Nevada City Bicycle Shop, Auburn Printers, Mountain Equestrian, Weiss Bros.

Also, a special thanks to Common Threads, whose music added a festive swing to our day and to Renewable Energy Products, Dee Dee Vierra and staff for not only supplying the pellet stoves but who also volunteered their time and efforts to cook our tri-tip and chicken barbecue.
Also, thank you to all the dedicated GCTC members who donated prizes and food and volunteered their time and energy to staff the Poker Ride.
Thanks to everyone … we couldn’t have done it without you!
