The Sheriff's Posse is a horseback riding club formed by L.S. "Slim" Johnston, former Randall County Sheriff in the mid 1960's. Since that time, the Sheriff's Posse has stood ready to assist the Sheriff as a volunteer mounted search and rescue group upon request. We are also a horseback riding club, hosting fun group events throughout the year, including playdays, trail competitions, and trail rides. RCSP has amazing facilities to host our summer events at! We work hard to keep our arena in tip top shape for our members and friends!
The "Posse" is about creating friendships and being a part of the equine community in the Texas Panhandle.
We benefit by making new friends, fostering our young riders, and respecting past traditions.
