Over the past 15-plus years, the nonprofit Ocean Riders of Marin has developed a vaunted reputation on a pair of fronts: providing opportunities for disadvantaged children to connect with horses and nature, empowering them through their interactions with a 1,000-pound animal – and throwing one heck of an annual fundraiser to support those efforts.

The organization is back at it again on Saturday, Sept. 15, with “Blues in the Barn 2,” as Bruce Barlow leads a live performance from a band of all-star musicians that includes Austin de Lone, Steve Freund and Norm DiCarlo. There will also be barbecue from Maverick’s and a silent auction. The event is held at the organization’s home, the Golden Gate Dairy Stables within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) in Muir Beach. 

Unsurprisingly, the stars of the evening are the horses themselves. The 15 privately owned horses living in the stable, including Apache, Rooster, Bo, Pico and Lucky Little Bear will be on the “runway” as the centerpiece of the event.

The 411: Ocean Riders of Marin hosts its “Blues in the Barn 2” fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 15 (1-5pm) at its home, the Golden Gate Dairy Stables within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) at 1760 Shoreline Hwy. in Muir Beach. MORE INFO & BUY TIX.
