Everyone had a good time and we hope some of the spectators who braved the heat will want to try competing at the next show. We appreciate every one that helped to put this show on. It was a long hot day, but we couldn’t have done it without you. The saddle club will be hosting another Ranch Horse Show on August 23rd and we will once again start with the cattle classes. Let’s hope the weather isn’t quite as warm.
We will also have our final show of the Fun Show Saddle Series on August 9th. Awards will be presented at this show and you must be present to receive them.
On August 16th the saddle club will be hosting the Tri-County Youth Show.

Next Saddle Club meeting will be August 4th at the club grounds at 7:30.
