Wine Tasting & Horse Show

Attendees of the Wine Tasting & Horse Show last Saturday were treated to more than just great wine!  They also enjoyed the ambiance of the Nellie Gail Ranch Equestrian Center and an exhibition by some of our world class riders, trainers and horses.  Bree Kenney started things off with a James Bond themed musical freestyle on Dash. Grand Prix Dressage rider and USDF Gold Medalist Cassie Cherry Nolte followed with a patriotic themed freestyle performance on Whizzkid.  To close out the horse show, Grand Prix Jumper Lane Clarke put on a high jumping show on Queen who was flawless over impressive jump heights.  For many attending the wine tasting it was their first visit to the Equestrian Center and an opportunity to see just how special our Equestrian Community is.

Thank you to our contributing sponsor Brad Feldman Group.  Thank you also to Events Committee members Loree Blough, Alex Presley, Susan Phillips and Holly Permeh for planning this unique and fun event!!

We invite you to visit the Association Clubhouse next Friday for a low-key Open House Ribbon Cutting ceremony to officially welcome back our homeowners and club members.

Although we finished the Clubhouse refresh project last year we have not had the opportunity to show it off for your use and enjoyment due to the restrictions on inside gatherings.  However, due to the County of Orange entering a less restrictive tier we can now open our Clubhouse for use with a maximum capacity of 35 people in the main clubhouse and 15 in the multi-purpose room.

We are excited for you to enjoy the remodeled Association Clubhouse and facilities and invite you to come by, not just for the Open House, but anytime you may want to meet and socialize with your friends.

Kindness Rock Garden

Thank you to our Kindness Rock Garden artist participants!  We have received a number of rocks painted with inspirational messages, kind thoughts and lovely artwork.  We have placed them in planters at the front of our clubhouse entry.  As you visit please look and enjoy and appreciate the love and kindness our artists put into them.

And for those of you who picked up kits but have not turned in your rocks yet, please bring them by so we can keep adding to the collection throughout our Clubhouse entry.  There is no deadline or expiration for kind thoughts and expressions!!

Spring Event – Last Weekend to Pick Up Your Kit!

It’s time to spread some love and kindness in Nellie Gail Ranch! Join us in painting some Kindness Rocks that will be displayed in a garden for the community to enjoy. Gather your supplies, your rock painting kit can be picked up at the Tennis & Swim Center, as well as your kind thoughts and sentiments. When considering a message to paint on a rock be sure that it is positive and uplifting. The goal is to inspire someone and make them feel happy when they find one. Imagine the message that you would like to find, chances are it will inspire someone else as well.

When your rock is finished and dry, bring it back to the Tennis and Swim Center for display in our kindness garden.
