Trail & Saddle Club Policies

Please don’t hesitate to send us a message if you have questions or concerns about any of our policies.


Carriage Driving Mondays & Wednesdays

Carriage Driving Mondays & Wednesdays

Monday and Wednesday mornings, 9am – noon, will be periods when carriage driving may take place at the club. There will be exceptions when clinics are conducted during these days. The driving community will abstain from driving their horses and carts those days. Moreover, in the name of safety, horse carriages will proceed off the club grounds if a horse and rider appear to be affected by the presence of the carriage driver.

Cattle-Free Wednesdays & Sundays

Cattle-Free Wednesdays & Sundays

Not every rider is happy to see cattle running about in the arenas. For riders and their mounts looking for regular times that the arenas will be cattle-free, you can count on every Wednesday before 1 pm and all day every Sunday. (Exceptions will be Sundays when there is a Western show or clinic scheduled). Thank you for your understanding.

Turnout Policy

Turnout Policy

  • Riders have priority over turnouts.
  • Loose horses in the arenas must be supervised.
  • Note that the round corral is for lunging only and is NOT to be used as a catch-pen or turn-out.
Dog Policy

Dog Policy

  • NO dogs at any Show, Clinic or Event.
  • The Trail & Saddle Club is a horse facility, and the safety of horse and rider is our first priority.
