Nevada Derby Ride April 3 & 4

The Nevada All-State Trail Riders, Inc. (NASTR) is a non-profit corporation
organized in 1968 for the purpose of preserving historical trails in Nevada
by sponsoring and promoting horse back riding on these trails.

NASTR is pleased to present our spring warmup ride, The Nevada Derby, April
3 and 4, 2010 in the Winnemucca Valley, north of Reno, Nevada, with two days
of rides: Saturday with 25 and 50-mile rides, and Sunday with 15 and 50-mile
rides. The Triple Crown qualifing ride will be Saturday's 50-mile ride.

Both days' 50-mile rides are AHA Region 3 Local Rides. Sundays 15-mile ride
is not AERC sanctioned.

NASTR's spring ride was historically known as the Derby Ditch, and for
nearly 40 years was based north of Reno near a geographic feature by that
name, but residential development forced us from that location. It's still
the first of our three rides (our Triple Crown), and we invite you to join
in the challenge of riding them all for special awards based on their
combine riding times.

Base camp for the ride remains unchanged, at the home of Joe & Karen
Broughton located at 6505 Rangeland Rd., Reno, NV 89510. We are pleased to
host the ride at this location and wish to express our sincere thanks to Joe
& Karen for once again allowing the use of their property for our base camp.

We are also pleased to annouce that with the cooperation of the owners and
manager of the Winnemucca Ranch, and weather permitting, we anticipate being
able to repeat and expand upon last year's trail further into the foothills
north of camp.
