Horsepower and Ponies at High Desert Harley Davidson



If you’ve ever dreamed of finding motorcycles, ponies, poker hands and music all in one place, your dreams have come true.

On June 25, High Desert Harley-Davidson is hosting Horsepower and Ponies, a motorcycle poker fun run (well, ride) and concert to benefit the nonprofit organization Personal Ponies, Ltd.

Here’s how it works: Riders receive a score sheet and route map, then hop on their bikes and cruise to five different locations on a 78-mile loop, stopping and drawing a card at each. Riders with the best hands win prizes at the end of the run.

The run is from 9-11 a.m. and registration for the ride is $20, which includes one poker hand—each additional hand is $5. But this leather-laden, family fun event doesn’t run out of gas there. Live music featuring Tim Macdonald with Bad Habit Band will begin at 1 p.m. to accompany a raffle, silent auction, food and more fun.

At 7:30 p.m., the party will move to the Buffalo Club, where Ira Dean of Trick Pony will perform with the Saloonatics.

You are probably still wondering about the ponies.

The beneficiary of all of this fun is Personal Ponies Ltd., a nonprofit organization that supplies Shetland ponies to differently abled children. Their unique mission is to enrich children’s lives by providing them with a miniature equine companion to love and care for, at no cost.
