SaddleBack In Barn Halloween Show - Sat, Nov 3rd!
The SaddleBack In-Barn Fall Horse Show will be on Saturday, November 3rd. The Prize-List and Sign-up sheets will be posted on the tack room window soon. Entry forms are available in the tack room. A $50 deposit & Entry Form are required when signing up to reserve your preferred school horse. Total show cost for a full division with school horse is $150 & cost with own horse is $120. This is a great opportunity for riders to get a taste of what shows are like, and for those already showing to practice moving up a division. Immediately following the final class of the show will be the Halloween Party, including the costume contest: Estimated time of start is 1pm. Come join us for a fun afternoon of costume parade, painted pumpkin display, and candy/treats. The costume parade contest starts at 1:30 in the Jumper Ring. Sign-ups will be posted on the tack-room window in late September. Sign up early as we had over 20 people signed up & participate last year! Also, bring your painted (not carved) pumpkin to display/be voted on, and we will later place the pumpkins around the arena and under jumps for all to enjoy during lessons. We're offering prizes for the winning pumpkin and for each costume category! Hope to see everyone there!

We would like to give a warm Welcome to our new trainer Megan Whitworth! She is the proud owner of the Beautiful Willow, and Handsome Scout! Megan started riding around the age of 5, and grew up riding and showing around Tulsa. By the age of 15 she’d won several year end ribbons from HJEO, and had found a passion and knack for the young and problem horses. While in college, she began teaching lessons and discovered a love for helping people grow as equestrians.
After graduating from Oklahoma State, Megan moved to Fort Worth to work as an Assistant Trainer at a competitive upper level show barn. While there, Megan was not only able to fine tune her skills as a rider and trainer- starting horses under saddle, developing them for the show ring, and showing through 1.20m; but she was also able to develop as a knowledgeable, capable, and patient instructor. Her students showed through all levels- from local to AA shows- and earned many champions, reserves, circuit, and year end awards- including qualifying for IEA National Finals.
Since moving back to Tulsa, Megan has focused on the riding and training of green horses and even earned a 3rd Place Horse of the Year for Zone 7 in the 3’6 Green Conformation Hunters with her personal show horse in 2016.
Her goals are to create dependable, healthy, capable, athletes that love their jobs and to help people unearth the same love for riding and that she has- both in and out of the show ring. She is teaching some weeknights and weekends here at SaddleBack. Please say Hi to Megan and her horses and help us welcome her to our team!
Congratulations to Katie W on the purchase of Johnny!! We're delighted to have him at SaddleBack and are so happy for the two of you!
