The Club offers a variety of activities and a graduated series of divisions for riders of different levels of ability.

The purposes of the Club include the following:

Our grounds consist of the riding ring, practice ring, food booth and pavilion, a 20-stall barn, which is available free of charge on a first come basis. We have water for the horses. We also have overnight camping for shows and seasonal camping for members. There are tons of trails from the grounds and we have several organized trail rides scheduled this summer.
