I second that SAK. My slow dial-up had no trouble with the pictures downloading quite fast. Thanks Carol for using a low quality and size to show your pics. They came out looking great too. Sure wish everyone would do that.

Subject: Open House Scheduled for June 21 on Proposed Management Plan for Fort Custer State Recreation Area

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 7, 2010

Contacts: Paul Curtis 517-335-4832 or Mary Dettloff 517-335-3014

Open House Scheduled for June 21 on Proposed Management Plan for Fort
Custer State Recreation Area

The Department of Natural Resource and Environment announced today that
an open house designed for the public to provide input on the proposed
Phase 2 Long-Range Action Goals Plan for Fort Custer Recreation Area in
Kalamazoo County will be held on Monday, June 21. The open house will
be held from 7 to 9 p.m. in the gymnasium at the Galesburg-Augusta High
School, located at 315 W. Battle Creek Dr. in Galesburg.

Fort Custer State Recreation Area provides approximately 3,030 acres of
public recreational property between the cities of Kalamazoo and Battle
Creek. The Kalamazoo River winds through the park, which also has three
man-made lakes and contains significant natural and cultural resources.
The park offers a variety of recreation options including camping,
fishing, hunting and trapping, birding and trails.

DNRE Recreation Division staff will be available to present an overview
of the proposed plans for Fort Custer State Recreation Area and address
questions regarding the park and the planning efforts underway.

For more information about this open house, the proposed plan, or
persons needing accommodations to attend this open house, contact Paul
Curtis, DNRE park management plan administrator, at 517-335-4832
(TTY/TDD711 Michigan Relay Center for the hearing impaired) at least
five business days before the open house.

Effective Oct. 1, 2010, the Recreation Passport will be available to
Michigan residents for $10 per registered vehicle, or $5 per registered
motorcycle. This will replace the resident annual state park and
boating access site permits. By checking “Yes” on your vehicle
registration form, Michigan residents will realize a 58 percent savings
in exchange for unlimited access to all Michigan state parks and boating
access sites. This money will also help support Michigan state parks,
boating access sites, state forests and local parks. Information about
the Recreation Passport will also be available at this open house, or
you can visit [www.michigan.gov]

The Department of Natural Resources and Environment is committed to the
conservation, protection, management, and accessible use and enjoyment
of the state’s environment, natural resources, and related economic
interests for current and future generations. For more information, go
to [www.michigan.gov]

Slated for discussion at this meeting is discussion about the separation of the bike/horse trails, and the potential for an equine camp.

Please attend if you can.

(4501) Adding a few pics from the Blossom Ride 2010. I don't know how to download all five at once so I'm doing them one at a time. I have pics of others but I don't know who they are other than nice people that I've met at different times on the trails and don't want to post without their permission. Hopefully this first one will upload. This is my friend Eula on our way to Walsh Road.

Gordon and I just went to the Funeral Home for the service of Delbert E. White, the owner of THE BLUFFS at Camden, Michigan. We had a visit with Del's son, he told us to spread the word that he wanted horse people to continue to come and camp at THE BLUFFS as that is what dad wanted. So in case you have heard different, THE BLUFFS IS STILL OPEN FOR CAMPING AND RIDING.

The Bluffs is a small privately owned campground in southern Hillsdale county located on Montgomery Road just west of M-49. The trails are wide and very well maintained, lots of hills, a covered bridge over the creek a couple of private lakes, a very pleasant place to ride. It is featured in the Horse Source put out annually by the Equine Times, it is also featured in John Faitel's revised edition of Michigan Horse Trails book. I have a friend who used to ride endurance and she trained at the Bluffs and claimed those trails told her when her horse was conditioned and ready to compete. It is only 3 miles from my house and I plan to go down there later this week to see if they have any brochures or printed materials to hand out, if they do I will get some and let you know I have them.

Zareba EZEE 900 square foot Corral (portable) that operates on 4 D-cell batteries. Has 4 self-contained reels of 1 1/2" (white) poly tape, built in fence charger (8,000 volts), 4 corner posts and 4 portable posts which all fit into a handy little canvas bag (about as large as a pup tent). Great system for trail riding/camping and easy for one person to put up. We only used this once so it's brand new (it's not even dirty yet). See the website here for a good picture of what it looks like: [www.horse.com]

Nothing is wrong with it (the fence was hot enough to keep 2 of our horses contained) but we just don't use it. We paid $325 for it but will sell for $250. Not kidding when I say that it's brand new and you can't tell it was ever used. (269) 744-0433. Email: gaitedhorse@hotmail.com.

Saddle Fitting Clinic
Presented by The Pinckney Trail Riders Association

Sunday, June 13th
11 am
Hell Creek Corral
10828 Cedar Lake Rd. Pinckney, MI 48169

Clinic – free for PTRA members, $5.00 non-members

Erin Bisco, of White Willow Therapies, will show how saddle fit affects your horse bio-mechanically. Most saddles are fit to a standing horse rather than a moving horse. Through explanation and demonstrations she will show you how the fit of the saddle can alter the way your horse moves and consequently carries its rider. Troubles on the trail can often be the result of an improperly fit saddle. Does your horse have the freedom of movement it needs for the those canter rides? Is there a little bucking going on when you try to increase your speed? Does your horse move away from you when you try to mount? Maybe he’s trying to tell you something.

Erin Bisco is a practicing massage therapist and a certified Equine Massage Therapist. In 2008 she attended a working course on saddle fit and performance problems through Balance International.

Individual fittings - $45.00

Erin will be doing individual fittings following the clinic.

If you would like to bring your horse for a fitting please call to reserve a spot. These fittings take approximately 1 hour. A negative Coggins is required.

I am selling my almost new Big Horn endurance. This is a great saddle that fits my Missouri Foxtrotter perfectly but doesn't fit me as well. It has a wide, gaited, flexible tree that works great-very comfortable for the horse. It has five rides on it and cost me $1350. I am asking $1100. I can't get a picture loaded, but if you are interested, I can e- mail it to you.
