Fall Show Season
Fall show season is in full swing! Sign-up sheets for the remaining September-November shows are posted on the tack room window. If you ride a school horse and have a favorite horse you want to ride in a show(s), sign your name and preferred horse up ASAP as they are assigned on a 1st-come-1st-serve basis if not leased. One of the many perks of leasing a SaddleBack horse is that you are ALWAYS guaranteed your horse for lessons and shows AND save on horse rental fees. If you have any questions about shows or leasing a school horse, please contact SaddleBack or ask your trainer. 

SaddleBack Halloween Party: Sunday, October 29, 3-4:30pm: Come join us for a fun afternoon of costume parade, painted pumpkin display, games and candy/treats.  The costume parade contest starts at 3:30pm in the Jumper Ring. Sign-ups will be posted on the tack-room window in early October.  Sign up early as we had over 20 people signed up & participate last year!  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 the following week. We are offering prizes this year for the winning pumpkin and for each costume category! Hope to see everyone there!
