Like so many events, a longtime annual ride had to take a COVID break last year.

But this year, the Blackfoot/Clearwater Chapter of the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation is excited about the return of their annual Game Range Ride. And you're invited.

The ride is Saturday, June 12, starting at 9:00 a.m. All riders must be on the course no later than 10:00 and all riders in by 1:30 p.m. The ride covers approximately an 8-mile course, with five collection stops on the Blackfoot/Clearwater Wildlife Management Area. It will begin and end at the Old Boyd Ranch, about three miles off Highway 200, a couple miles east of the Clearwater Junction. Signs will be posted.

Prizes will be given for the highest, high/low split and lowest point scores. There will be children's prizes, too. Children must be at least 8 years old and accompanied by an adult. Also, bring a lawn chair, but don't bring the dogs.

Adult tickets are $40 each in advance and kids 16 and under are $30 each. Prices include lunch and beverages starting at 1:00 p.m. You can also purchase lunch-only tickets for just $15.

The ride is limited to the first 150 entries. Advance ticket price sales are requested by June 10 and prices will go up $10 each for registration the day of the ride.

It sounds like a pretty cool family event for you horse lovers.  If you'd like more information and get registered, you can call Todd Johnson at 406-677-4056 or Twyla Johnson at 406-677-4047.

Liability release forms will need to be signed and all riders will be expected to practice safe and courteous horsemanship.
