Welcome to Red Valley
Red Valley Saddle Club is venturing into an exciting time for change. A local riding club will always have a foundational value in the lives of riders. It is at these clubs we connect with others who have a passion for horses; it is where young riders get their first taste of competition, and riders who enjoy the thrill of competing but have no interest making the larger circuit investments come to play, and where big circuit riders come back to for practice; it's in these spaces we learn a new trick or two, some piece of wisdom that makes the world of a difference in how you ride or care for your horse. The local riding club is a space where members support each other through many moments of laughter, like when your horse tries to roll in the sand during a class; tears, from spills or the loss of a good horse and through celebration of a ribbon or personal best. Red Valley commits to continuing to hold this space for its members as we move through this process of change. The format of hosting shows monthly has come to close for the 2019 year and we now seek to build a new structure that meets the need of today's riders while maintaining these foundational qualities.
Below you will see an ambitious start to this new journey as members have started to share their thoughts on what this could be. This list of activities will be used to spark our organizational meeting held Sunday, March 3rd at 1pm in the office of The Blanket Smith (Pam Grants house). Peewee parents, Youth volunteers, Members, you are all welcome to come establish our 2019 calendar of events and if you are unable to attend, please contribute to the chart any activities you would like the group to discuss.

Many thanks to everyone that came out to support the Larry Johnson Memorial Barrel Race hosted by Red Valley Saddle Club. Photos are below. It was a wet night but worth waiting out the rain with a $1,585 jackpot to hand out to the winners of the 3D race. The grounds looked great for this big horse show weekend thanks to our friends and supporters that are behind the scenes: Rolf Neumann of Vandex Manufacturing for keeping up with the weed trimming; Kayla Wilson and family for getting the pen in shape; Total Landscape for being on hand with water if needed ; Falconer Transport for providing a manure bin and Strathroy Caradoc Parks & Recreation for being great "landlords" .
