Rockie Mountain Saddle Club horse shows run through Sept. 14

The Rockie Mountain Saddle Club invites horse enthusiasts of all ages and abilities to join them for fun-filled, affordable, horse shows the whole family will enjoy. The saddle club is local, low key and inexpensive and is the perfect opportunity for 4H members or anyone wanting to get show ring experience, or just have some fun on a horse.

The remaining 2013 shows are scheduled for July 20, Aug. 17 and 24 and Sept. 14.

Riders may compete in any division, including English, Western, and/or Gymkhana. The contestant’s age on Jan. 1, 2013 will determine the age division in which he or she will compete for the entire show season: 6 and under (may be lead line), 7–10, 11–13, 14–18, 19 and over. A separate Lead-Line Division, open to any rider, is also offered during the Gymkhana Division. English classes begin at 8 a.m. sharp, Western classes not before 10:30 a.m., and Gymkhana no earlier than 3 p.m.

Ribbons are awarded for 1st through 6th place in each class. Daily highpoint awards are presented to the contestant who earns the most points in his or her age division for each discipline. You do not have to be a RMSC Member to participate in RMSC shows or to earn daily highpoint awards.

Overall season points will be tallied for all RMSC Members who complete the minimum volunteer service hours and compete in a minimum of three shows in the same division. Year End Highpoint Awards will be presented at the Year End Awards Banquet on Nov. 16.

All RMSC shows and events are held at Folley’s Arena in Wellington, located just north of Larimer County Road 70 (Exit 281 off of I-25/Owl Canyon) on County Road 11.
