Urbana Saddle Club was formed in 1961 to promote a safe fun place to ride and show horses for youth and adults.

Our Club host a minimum of one point show each month during the summer. The age groups are 9 and Under ,   10-15, and 16 and over.    Ribbons are given to the top five winners in each class.

We have a year end awards banquet honoring the winning members in each class. An award is given to the high point horse in each age division.

The next projects are a new warm up arena, repair our electrical lines, and covering the spectator bleachers.

Come join the fun!!
