Jeannette Maynard is proud to be founding member of the California Rhythm Riders, an all female equestrian drill team located in the Placerville area. The riders are all ages 17 and up and perform locally to raise funds for non-profit organizations as well as compete at drill team competitions and appear at shows, rodeos, schools and parades. When asked what her favorite part of the group is, she responded, “Seeing the team go out there and ride their hearts out with big smiles on their faces after working many months to perfect choreography and timing.”

Maynard describes the riders as a committed group. “They’ve driven through many storms then tacked up in the rain to practice one maneuver over and over until it comes together. We work hard, we laugh hard, it’s often frustrating, but I love seeing the team work together and support each other through good times and bad."

The team lives by two mottos – “Friendship First,” and “It’s a Thrill To Drill.” Watch the riders perform at the Placerville Christmas Parade on Sunday, December 7.
