Fountain Riding and Roping Club

           Horses, fun, and family;
the Western way, since 1969

Speed Points has our newest event:
                                               SADDLE UP! Family Horsemanship Games

We love families and beginners! 

Saddle Up! Family Horsemanship Games is a little bit like a gymkhana, but with some fun changes! We're adding a fun twist of different kinds of horseback games.

 You compete against others in your speed division, not against your age group! Here is where beginners gain confidence, have fun, and earn ribbons! We are laidback, fair to all, comfortable atmosphere, no high-pressure, just FUN!


FRRC's Saddle Up! Event Series is all season long, and club members accrue points for Year-end awards (after meeting club requirements).  This is an OPEN show/event, with an event day office charge of $10.00 for any non-club members who want to participate. Riders can work on improving their skills, training their horses abilities, and of course cheering each other on!
Many of us have personal goals and issues that we work on consistently with our equine partners, and these fun, family events give us a chance to see how our efforts are paying off. 

Points are given to OPEN Division riders in a 5-D scoring system. (Like local barrel races) The difference is that it is divided into divisions, starting with the fastest time then divided by full 3 second splits into
5 divisions (also known as D's). This means that you have more chances to win!

All our Leadline participants
All riders will receive ribbons
 at each event! (if they wish)

                      ALL AROUND

For our first event this year, we did a standard pole pattern "with a twist", one of the poles was shorter, and a plastic cup (given at the entry gate) had to be placed on this short pole as you weaved the pattern.  

We used a 4 barrel pattern to run a "4 leaf clover" pattern for the Barrels class.  Then teamed up for a ribbon race (team event) on the same pattern.

A 75 up and back was used as the base for a "Ring the Cone" challenge.  A large cone was placed on the barrel and the rider was given a Styrofoam ring at the start to place on the cone. 

These are the kinds of games we will be playing at Saddle Up!!
