D'Arbonne Range Riders is a non-profit horseback riding organization that hosts several events throughout the year including rodeos, barrel runs, playdays, and much more. DRR also sponsors a youth organization called Ag-Kids which helps to fund member participation in agricultural related competitions. In May, DRR hosts its annual Stampede Days, a fun-filled weekend for the whole family including a parade and pony rides. An LRCA sanctioned rodeo is held on Friday and Saturday night. On Memorial Day Weekend, a three day barrel run is held to raise money for the Ag-Kids program as well as other non-profits around the community. In the October, a second LRCA Rodeo is held along with our two day Monster Mash Barrel Bash on Halloween weekend. In December, the Christmas Party/Awards Banquet is held to give out awards earned by participants in the annual saddle series.
Our next meeting will be held May 5 at 7pm. We have a Two-Man Ranch Sorting on April 23 and a workday at the arena on May 7.
