The Sopris Gymkhana Club would like to thank all the cowboys and cowgirls who came out to ride and compete in the horse games this summer. We are so proud of the riders for the improvements that they made and for the sportsmanship displayed throughout the season.

We would also like to thank the Carbondale community for its support of our club. A special thanks goes out to Kirk Carlson and Candace Blanc at the Roaring Fork Valley Co-op, Tai Jacober of Crystal Valley Meats, Steve Groom and town of Carbondale, and Tony Garcia of G and G Buckles for their support, and to all the parent volunteers who make this club possible.

We look forward to more fun and rewarding gymkhanas and hope to see you all out at the arena next summer.
