Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need. ~ Gillian Anderson, Actress The horse and trail riding associations within this special section of Saddle Up! Magazine, are here today because of a strong sense of volunteerism. If you find that you have extra time weekly, or even monthly, the organizations that have advertised in our 2017 Membership Drive could use your help. Even if you do not own a horse, but would like to learn more about them, volunteering is a great way to find out about our four legged equine friends. Working behind the scenes at a horse show is a wonderful way to find out if showing horses is for you. Helping clean-up trails, campgrounds and staging areas are also a great way to volunteer and help out a worthy organization. Find an organization in either Saddle Up! Magazine or online near you, and give them a call or send them an email. They will be happy to tell you when the next volunteer opportunity is available. You can also attend a board meeting or two, there is always someone available to answer questions and provide additional information. Thank you to our friends that have advertised in our 2017 Membership Drive section of Saddle Up! Magazine. Your support is appreciated. We hope that the New Year is a great success for your association! Best Wishes, Cindy Couturier, owner/editor and Mackenzie Gray, assistant editor

Kensington Trail Riders Association (KTRA) is a group of like minded individuals that span both genders and all age groups. Our horses are every breed and color imaginable. The common threads that connect us are our love of riding and a desire to keep Kensington Metro Park as a destination for trail riders. With more than 25 miles of equine riding, Kensington provides wide, sandy trails, diversity of terrain, and ease of access. KTRA members have work bee activities so everyone can enjoy the trails year-round for club activities and camping events. One of the highlights this past year was the Billy Gunn Trail Challenge where we encouraged members and non-members alike to come and ride a mile, ride a trail, or ride all the trails in the park on a single day. We generally host two fun-filled camping weekends each year - one in spring, one in fall. Both camping weekends have a camp breakfast on Saturday morning and a camp potluck with a band on Saturday night. It is a wonderful, fun-filled event.

Our Goals Throughout Association leadership and coaching, it is our goal that the student members derive whatever enjoyment and benefits possible as a result of participating as riders in horsemanship education programs and interscholastic competition. The MIHA and Coaches will involve each equestrian student (male and female) to the extent possible in team competition. The MIHA and Coaches will provide situations where each equestrian team member can be exposed to cooperative working experience that leads to common group goals. The MIHA and Coaches will provide each equestrian team member with the opportunities to experience good leadership, fair play, horsemanship, sense of honesty, character, pride and good sportsmanship at all times. The MIHA and Coaches will always provide, conduct and host equestrian interscholastic programs with proper instructions, coaching methods, conditioning rules, health, safety and welfare of each participant.

Be of service. Whether you make yourself available to a friend or co-worker, or you make time every month to do volunteer work, there is nothing that harvests more of a feeling of empowerment than being of service to someone in need. ~ Gillian Anderson, Actress The horse and trail riding associations within this special section of Saddle Up! Magazine, are here today because of a strong sense of volunteerism. If you find that you have extra time weekly, or even monthly, the organizations that have advertised in our 2017 Membership Drive could use your help. Even if you do not own a horse, but would like to learn more about them, volunteering is a great way to find out about our four legged equine friends. Working behind the scenes at a horse show is a wonderful way to find out if showing horses is for you. Helping clean-up trails, campgrounds and staging areas are also a great way to volunteer and help out a worthy organization. Find an organization in either Saddle Up! Magazine or online near you, and give them a call or send them an email. They will be happy to tell you when the next volunteer opportunity is available. You can also attend a board meeting or two, there is always someone available to answer questions and provide additional information. Thank you to our friends that have advertised in our 2017 Membership Drive section of Saddle Up! Magazine. Your support is appreciated. We hope that the New Year is a great success for your association! Best Wishes, Cindy Couturier, owner/editor and Mackenzie Gray, assistant editor

YSTRA MISSION STATEMENT The purpose of the Yankee Springs Trail Riders Association is to preserve, protect, improve and expand existing horse campgrounds and the horse trail network in the Yankee Springs Recreation Area, and the surrounding areas, for use by horsemen, their families and the general public for horse riding and camping. To develop and maintain good communications and working relationships with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation Division, and/or its successors. To assist them in their efforts to maintain adequate horse campgrounds and riding trails and to help generate revenue that will enable horse campgrounds to become self-supporting. To promote horse riding and camping by providing information to the general public on the location of horse campground facilities, horse trails and the recreational benefits available. Our Association was founded in 1989 by a group of riders that had been using the trails for quite some time. They decided that much more could be accomplished by organizing, and we have grown to over a hundred family memberships since then. We are a calendar year organization, offering family membership of $20.00 that runs from January 1st to December the 31st. We also offer a lifetime membership as well. As a trail riding group we try to have at least 3 events per year, one being a fundraiser for another nonprofit organization, such as Cancer Families United. We also like to have a kid's FREE event once a year and then a club fund raiser for improvement's to camp and trails. Our events are held at our “ADOPT-A-PARK” Horseman’s Campground on Duffy Road in the Yankee Springs Recreation Area. Our monthly meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month, usually with a potluck first and the meeting to follow. Except our Annual banquet meeting which is subject to new time and location as the board sees to change each year. At the annual meeting we usually have some youth awards that we like to present to our outstanding youth participation. Our newsletters are biannual. YSTRA will continue to improve and create more equestrian trails for our trail system with the help of our public land managers. We will continue to work to improve the campground and possibly bring electricity to our horse camp one day. Our website is www.ystra.org and we also monitor a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ystra.org. The current Officers of the club are: Richard Smith, V.P., Kathy Taylor, secretary, Jeanne Burger, treasurer, Ron Walker, president. Mailings should be to YSTRA, P.O. Box 352, Delton, Michigan, 49046. Any Questions should be directed to one of the officers or Ron Walker, 5780 Gun Lake Road, Hastings, Michigan 49058. Phone 269-945-4556, Cell 616-437-0747, or email presidentystra@yahoo.com.
