The September 15 Get Acquainted BBQ Ride was well attended. Twenty-five people met at Meramec Equestrian Trail near Sullivan, Mo. Riders rode out at 10:00 a.m. for the 12 mile loop. Lunch was provided by our chapter when they returned. Everyone shared horse stories and trail riding experiences.
On September 28, the Golden Horse Shoe Tack Shop held their annual sale. Our chapter set up our booth. We were able to provide information on the equestrian trails available in our area for day rides and overnight camping. Even with the rainy weather, many equestrians showed up to take advantage of the bargains and to take a chance on the raffled items. Another day of sharing good stories and experiences.
At both events information was provided on BCHA, BCHMO and Leave No Trace. We were able to let others know what our organization offers, what our goals and accomplishments are, and where to get more information.

Little Indian Creek Conservation Area project in Franklin County. Chapter members riding there had identified a badly eroded section of trail several months earlier. After discussions with MDC staff, it was decided that if our chapter could supply the labor MDC would provide the materials to repair that section of trail. There were several delays due to weather and the absence of MDC staff members detailed to fight wild fires in other states. Finally in late fall 2018, on a day with rain forecast, we were able to apply geotech fabric and gravel to the eroded section of trail just before the rain started.
