Hello, Awesome Horse Community! We will be hosting our second biannual Poker Ride at Washoe Lake State Park on June 1, 2024, with both 5-mile and 10-mile loops this time! I know it seems a little early to post for a June event, but we wanted to give everyone a chance to join us. A few people reached out last year who wished they would’ve known about it sooner so they could've joined us.
$20 buy-in per person for the poker ride, and $5 parking fee for Nevada residents; $10 for non-Nevada residents. We will have at least one food truck and Werlove Truck Treats will be there too. If you have kids that cannot ride with you, we will have unsupervised games available for them to play.
$5 charge if you would like to have a vendor booth spot. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to hold a spot for you. We will also have a silent auction with great prizes for you to bid on. We hope to be bringing 5-6 horses for a horse silent auction. We will have photos and videos of each available horse, and we request that you submit a pre-approval adoption application. You can apply the day of, as long as it is before you head out on the poker ride.
Since there will be 2 loops, we also need volunteers at each checkpoint booth, to give out cards, bottles of water and take photos and videos as people come in and leave their booth. Please email me to volunteer for this too at email@example.com.
Thank you, guys! I am very excited to have you all there and see your beautiful faces and horses.

Rockin Kt Equine Redemption
As a 501(c)3 our mission is to provide a place for all animals in need, while working to end the slaughter pipeline of animals who can still have a wonderful quality of life. We have become a Full Circle of Life Horse Shelter, we do our best to say yes to any animal in need.
Our main goal is to always have a safe place for every animal.
What We Do
We are a full circle of life horse shelter. We are open 24/7 and do our best to take in any horse in need…..young, old, broke, wild, special needs. Our horses come from owner surrenders, neglect cases, and directly from auctions where they are in danger of shipping to slaughter. Our goal is to help each horse become adoptable and find their forever home.
In our first three years, we have been able to save over 360 horses, donkeys and a number of other animals.
Please join us on our journey!
The rescue is open to the public, by appointment, to tour the facility and visit the horses in our care. We are upfront with RKER's training, vet care, and feeding program. We will answer any questions you may have!
The cost of rescuing, rehabilitating and the ongoing care for these horses is very expensive. Sadly, many of the horses that come to us are in terrible shape and require supplemental feed, along with veterinarian and farrier intervention to restore them to good health. This is only possible through donations from generous people like you.
RKER is always seeking financial assistance in stocking our hay barn, and for veterinarian and farrier expenses
VOLUNTEERS to help groom horses, clean stalls, build shelters, and to assist in the many other tasks that help the horses recover and thrive.
Have you ever wanted to make a difference in a rescue horse's life? Rockin Kt Equine Redemption is looking for trainers to join our team! This program is similar to the TIP program for Wild horses.
