to get people together for fellowship and riding horses prompted
the formation of the Tri-State Saddle Club in October of 2009.
According to Saddle Club President Christi Volz, the group caters
to all ages and all breeds of horses.
The Tri-State Saddle Club will hold organized rides and camping
trips to such places as OBannon Woods in May; Mammoth
Cave in June; and Midwest Trail Ride in August. Plans are in
place for additional rides in November and December as well.
A horse and tack sale will be held this Saturday, April 24 at
the Ripley County Fairgrounds in Osgood. The event will begin
at 9 a.m.
Booth spaces will be available for anyone interested in selling
saddles; show clothes and other horse related items as well
as stalls for those selling a horse.
Demonstrations on saddling and harnessing a horse will begin
at 11 a.m. and again at 5 p.m. KMSHA examiners will be on hand
for class and certification registration.
Other events planned include the Hoosier Open Horse Show in
July, which is open to all breeds and features a jumping and
driving class. The Turkey Show will be held in October where
those competing will receive prizes instead of ribbons.
Tri-State Saddle Club currently has 79 members from Indiana,
Ohio and Kentucky. We cater to all those who want to show,
to 4-H members, to those who just like to ride, Volz told
the Osgood Journal.
