First responders are an integral part of the community. By being among the first to arrive at the scene of an emergency, they often risk their lives to protect and assist those in need. Join us as we express our gratitude for their selfless service.

The Saddle Rack is holding a First Responders Appreciation Weekend on Friday and Saturday, September 15-16, open to the community age 21 and over. We graciously welcome all first responders, including active duty and retired law enforcement, firefighters, EMS, and military. Qualified first responders will receive $5 off admission, plus a complimentary meal special from our kitchen (must show ID or badge).

We will be partnering with Coors Banquet for their “Protect Our West” Program. A portion of all Coors Banquet sold through September 30th (up to $250,000) will go to the Wildland Firefighter Foundation (

There will be drink specials each evening, and $1 from all specials sold will be donated as well to other First Responder Organizations. 

Doors open at 7pm, and this is a 21 and over event. Friday the 15th will include complimentary line dancing lessons and live music from Diablo Road. Saturday the 16th includes live music from Jeff Ricketts Band and Diablo Road.

 We hope to see a large turnout from the community to come express our gratitude and support for first responders, while raising funds for these worthy causes.
