We hosted first of six gymkhana’s on April 22nd, along with our standard Poles and Barrels, contestants had fun weaving through the In-Line Barrels and the quick Keyhole pattern. The fastest rider in all four fun events received a gift certificate from El Torito in Gering, Nebraska, Congratulations to Heather Daniels for four good runs. Dr Van Anne donated the prizes for all winners in the Barrel Racing. Van Anne’s prizes will be given to the winners of one of the four events to be selected at random at each Gymkhana. Keep this in mind and come play in all four events offered!
Prior to our Gymkhana, the club hosted a grounds clean up day. Focus was taking care of the lilac area, conducting arena and grounds trash walks and some general welding and mowing. The entire area looks much better, BIG thanks to everyone whom participated and an extra shout out to our Ambassadors and their hard work. Volunteers at our clean up days bring a little sweat equity and put Pride in our facility. The attending members had a quick lunch and a General meeting.

A saddle certificate from Tod Slone Saddles will be awarded to the Historic Saddle Club Youth member with the highest number of points earned throughout the 2023 year’s Historic Saddle Club activities. The certificate will be presented at the Christmas Award Banquet in December. Participating by either preparing for, helping during, cleaning up, or competing in Historic Saddle Club events earns the member points. RULES: Must be a current Historic Saddle Club family member in good standing to start earning points. Ambassador must be 18 or under as of January 1, 2023, there is no minimum age.
EARNING: Helping and competing are separate point-earning activities during an event. i.e. you can earn one (1) point for helping and one (1) point for competing for and having fun. To earn the helping point you need to sign-up with the Event point of contact (usually can be found on the information flier)! Any Historic Saddle Club Board Member or Event Point of Contact for the event you helped with will verify your efforts via the sign-up board. Signing up and helping during, cleaning up in the event counts for one (1) point. Competing in the event in any category or class counts as one (1) point even if it is just a single entry. Again, only two points can be awarded per event one (1) Helping and one (1) Competing. ACTIVITIES: Point events include but are not limited to the following: Egg Scramble, Clinics, Clean-Up days, Gymkhanas, Horse shows, Youth and Beginner Ranch Sorts, 4-H (in-door and/or out-door meetings), Trail Rides, Royalty contest (helping or competing), Parades, Working Equitation, and Roping Practices. JACKPOT Exception: *No points will be awarded for participation in Jackpotted events. Any event with a cash payout does not count; however, helping with the event such as pushing cattle, setting barrels, or opening gates, will count. Competing in the Amateur and Open Ranch Sorts categories and all Run & Rope events do not count, helping with them does! EXAMPLE: Again, nominees can earn points by signing up, competing, and helping with Historic Saddle Club events. Some days many have multiple events, allowing the multiple points to be earned. For example; One (1) point can be earned by helping at clean-up day, on the same day there will be a fun Egg Scramble, one (1) point can be earned by competing in the scramble, and one (1) point for helping with the scramble. A total of three (3) points can be earned for this fun day. TIES: Ambassador point ties will be handled with a draw for the certificate. Don’t forget to get your nomination for the year-end Ambassador Saddle certificate.
