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!!
