THE MOUNTIES IS A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE FOR YOU AND YOUR
HORSE! WE INVITE YOU TO COME AND SEE ALL OF THE FUN, ACTION, AND
EXCITING OPPORTUNITIES THE MOUNTIES HAVE TO OFFER!
Who we are: The Mokelumne Mounties is a 501c3 non-profit
organization which seeks to enhance the lives of the youth in our
community by providing a safe environment while helping to develop
self-esteem, teamwork skills, leadership, and self discipline. The
Mokelumne Mounties is open to girls and boys ranging in ages from 8 to
18. The Mounties was formed in 1981 as a 4-H project.
What we do: The team rides and trains their own horses to perform
drills consisting of spectacular and daring maneuvers to dramatic music,
wearing striking silver, black and red uniforms, and custom made chaps.
The Mounties perform at rodeos, parades, and competitions throughout
California and the Western states. The Mounties also make appearances
and volunteer at many other community events throughout the year.
Fees: There are no membership fees or dues. The team raises their own
money through fundraisers and donations and uses the proceeds to
purchase tack, equipment, uniforms and pay expenses for competitions.
The team has matching tack & equipment, and uniforms. Each member
must provide their own black boots, black hat and black Wrangler jeans for
events and competitions.
