Maverick Riding Club hands out awards at year-end banquet

Members recognized for contributions and accomplishments over the year.

On November 10, 2012 the Maverick Riding Club held their annual awards night and banquet at the Apollo Restaurant.  The club is a local organization that hosts monthly gymkhanas, clinics, demonstrations and campouts to its members throughout the year.  The gymkhanas results are collaborated and prizes and acknowledgement are given at the banquet. The Little Mav’s Awards and participation awards were also given to participants 18 and under who came to gymkhanas throughout the year. Thank you to our many other sponsors who made this night happen, from sponsoring raffle table items, silent auction items and prizes/buckles.
