Recently my youngest daughter and I had the privilege to attend the Redshank Rider's annual Turkey
Treasure Hunt. Although we don't own a horse yet, we thought
it to be a good excuse to eat lunch in Anza,
California. What does this have to do with real estate you
might ask? Well,it has everything to do with
real estate. You see some of the prettiest country sits up in
mountain community. Fresh air and beautiful mountain tops are a couple of reasons why it's worth the trip.
The Redshank riders are a group of horsemen (and women) who are dedicated to keeping the riding
trails of Southern California in the same shape that God
intended them to be in. This is no small task considering how
many miles of trails we have in this region
of the country. You can learn more about this club by clicking on

The treasure hunt on horse back was designed to test
even the most able of riders. The average time to complete the journey took 3hrs. This makes the
winning time of 1hr.46min. quite a feet in its self. The winning team gave credit to the younger ones for
their eagle eyes which aided in locating the treasures in
The raffle had many useful prizes that included a hand
made purse, saddle bags, paintings, gift
certificates at one of the local Veterinarian clinics and these
man sized boots.
All this was capped off with a home cooked turkey
and ham dinner. Complete with baroque beef and all the
fixings. There were lots
of smiles on this breezy
autumn day and why not,
there was plenty of good food and good people to go around. Also,
with so many prizes to hand out nearly everyone felt like a winner. If
you are a horse lover or just need to get out in the great outdoors consider rounding up with this fine
group of folks.
