Beginning in 1999, El Río Reyes Conservation Trust hosts an annual horseback ride for its members and guests. This event, held on the Kings River trails and cropland of Reedley Community College, is a fundraising and educational outreach opportunity.

 

This activity was developed by founding member Bob Frisch, and it was named in his honor after his sudden death in 2002. The scenic four-mile guided tour highlights the riparian ecosystem and points of historic interest, including the Poole’s Ferry Crossing that is marked by an El Rio Reyes Conservation Trust monument.

 

A barbecue lunch is shared by the riders and often a poker game is enjoyed along the way where riders can win cash and prizes. Riders and participants were also given a program to acquaint the participants with the organization and to invite them to join in its efforts. The Bob Frisch Memorial Horseback Ride is typically held in the Fall each year, visit HERE to learn more.
