Pt. Reyes Western Weekend and Cow Flop Drop Fundraiser

Located in Point Reyes Station, the Western Weekend Parade is an opportunity for our riders to experience the thrill of riding down Main Street in front of a cheering crowd. In addition to the parade, there is a Western weekend "Queen" contest, a 4H fair, a BBQ, a chili cook-off contest, and Halleck Creek Ranch's very own Cow Flop Drop fundraiser.

The “Cow Flop Drop” fundraiser is a unique event that raises funds for the therapeutic horseback riding program for people with disabilities at Halleck Creek Ranch. Here's how it works: Each ticket purchased has a number which corresponds to a numbered square located on the official Cow Flop Drop grid. At the start of the event, a calf is allowed onto the grid, and walks freely upon the grid until it “flops” (poops). The Cow Flop Drop judge will determine which square, or squares, the flop is on, and the winning ticket number(s) will be announced. The winner wins $500; winners will be notified promptly. You do not need to be present to win.

Tickets are $5 per square and there are only 550 squares available. Tickets can be purchased online by credit card or Paypal, or at the ranch by cash or check.
