MILTON — The Blackwater Saddle Club’s next play day is this Saturday. Events include pole bending, arena race, clover barrels and other fun games.
For the summer months, the event starts at 5 p.m., registration at 3 p.m. for participants.
Come out to watch or participate in the fun. A non alcoholic concession stand is available and open to all.
Play days are held at June Ates Arena, East Milton Recreation Park, 8600 Bobby Brown Road, Highway 90 east at Highway 87 south.
The Blackwater Saddle Club is a family-oriented organization for those learning to ride horses and develop their skills in a supportive environment, according to President Kyle Holley.
The club aims to have events where youths can bring their horses, develop themselves as riders and develop their horses in an arena setting.
Membership is open to both those who are first-time horse owners and those who don’t own a horse.
The club has classes for different age groups and experience levels. Regardless of the class, for safety, the club will not pair an inexperienced rider with an inexperienced horse.
