 Thursday night barrel practice has a few changes. It has always been a requirement to be a member due to insurance reasons and still is. It has been brought to our attention that there have been several non members practicing on Thursday night. 

1. You must me a member to practice due to insurance. This includes riding in and outside of the arena.

2. Practice starts at 7 pm.

3. You must sign up and pay the $5.00 per member fee at the birds nest BEFORE practicing. This is a per member fee and not a per membership fee.

4. If you are not a member you may join that night. Our membership fee is $50.00.

5. During our club events and practice your must have proper riding equipment and attire (boots etc), no bareback, no double riding and WALK ONLY outside the arena unless you are in one of the two designated warm up areas. We are aware there is no light in the back area and are working on that. The second area is on the corner over by the barn. These rules will be strictly enforced to insure the safety of our riders and horses.
Beginner Class Changes
We discussed and voted on some changes for the beginner class at last nights meeting (Monday 6/11). This class will now allow the rider to ride by themselves with the presence of a responsible person in the arena. This person must be on the running side of the timer with the child. There will be a 90 second time limit and the alley way gates will be closed during the ride. The 60 second mark will be called out from either from the bird's nest or alley way. At this time the person in the arena will need to lead the rider out of the arena completing the pattern first if needed. Please cross the timer line with your child at the same time as you do now while lead lining. This 90 second time limit is to keep the class moving as quickly as possible but allowing our beginners to learn to ride on their own with assistance in the arena. This is a participation class only so no points will be effected. Class changes can only be made at the beginning of the new points year. This is not a time to school your child or horse. It is to give them guidance if needed. The lead line option is not effected in any way.
