THE BRIGHTEST

STARS ARE THOSE WHO Volunteer SHINE TODAY! FOR THE BENEFIT OF

OTHERS ALL AGES WELCOME Volunteering for one of the horse or trail riding associations within our Membership Drive section is a great way to contribute to your local equine community. Have a few hours a week or more? Spend it helping an equine focused association or trail riding group. It’s a great way to get close to horses and their wonderful people. Volunteers of any age are always welcome. What a wonderful way to introduce children to horses!

NO HORSE REQUIRED Don’t have a horse? That’s okay. No horse experience? That’s okay too. You just need to be interested in horses, that’s all it takes! Volunteering is a great way to learn about horses, no matter your age or experience level. There is always something to do!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Volunteering your time can be a rewarding experience. Meet people with the same interests as you, and make wonderful, lasting relationships within the equine community. If you don’t have the time, become a member of one or more horse associations or trail riding groups. Financial assistance is always welcome. All proceeds from memberships go directly to the association or trail riding group for their financial assistance. There is no middle man, how many non-profit organizations can say that!

WHY BE A VOLUNTEER? It’s not for money, it’s not for fame. It’s not for any personal gain. It’s just for love of fellow man. It’s just to send a helping hand. It’s just to give a tithe of self. That’s something you can’t buy with wealth. It’s not medals won with pride. It’s for that feeling deep inside. It’s that reward down in your heart. It’s that feeling that you’ve been a part. Of helping others far and near, that makes you be a Volunteer. ~ Author Unknown JANUARY 2020 • C & C PUBLISHING, INC. ©2020

Mission Statement: The mission of the Kensington Trail Riders (KTR) is to promote, preserve, improve and create opportunities for equestrians and the equestrian trails and facilities of Kensington Metropark and surrounding areas. KTR will work to ensure present and future equestrian usage and enjoyment while building a community of trail riders, cultivating strong relationships with the Huron Clinton Metropolitan Authority and other trail organizations in the area. By encouraging proper land management, equal access and promotion of equestrian trail opportunities, the Kensington Trail Riders will encourage equestrian tourism to the Huron Clinton Metropark Authority and be a voice and advocate to policy makers and management in regard to equestrian trails and facilities within the Kensington Metro Park or HCMA area. Kensington Metropark encompasses more than 4500 acres of beautiful flat to rolling terrain through mixed hardwoods and open fields. With more than thirty miles of out and back trails in the park and a single-track connector route to Proud Lake State Recreation Area and its trail system, there is a riding route and terrain elements for any riding preference. The Huron River meanders through the Northwest corner of the park and provides a welcome oasis for watering your horse or taking a swim after a hot ride. The park is home to deer and wild turkeys. You might see the large Sandhill Cranes that frequent the area and get to hear their prehistoric cry. In some places the trail will border Kent Lake or maybe you'll ride to the high points of the nine mile western loop. The staging area off Martindale Road between Dawson Road and GM Road is frequently busy with horse people from all areas. Kensington allows no hunting and is generally relatively bug free when other areas are unridable. Facilities at the staging area include a Porta John and nearby hand pump for water, although most just ride their horses over the hill to the river to water. In the warmer months many riders like to take a short ride to the Dairy Queen for a treat to complete their day in the saddle, so make sure to bring along a little extra cash. It is a beautiful park and we are sure you will enjoy your ride here.

SEPTEMBER 25-27, 2020 IS OUR CIRCLE RIDE WITH THE PROUD LAKE TRAIL RIDERS ASSOCIATION! Kensington Trail Riders P.O. 534, Milford, Michigan 48381 (248) 672-0154 KensingtonTrailRiders2019@gmail.com

YANKEE SPRINGS TRAIL RIDERS ASSOCIATION 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 Jan. 1st to Dec. 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 Horseman’s Campground on Duffy Road in the Yankee Springs Recreation Area. Our monthly meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of every month, usually with a potluck and the meeting to follow. Except for our annual banquet meeting, which is subject to new time and location as the board sees to change each year. 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. In 2016 YSTRA became an official friends group of the Yankee Springs Horseman’s Camp. 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: Tom Chaffee, 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.
