Maverick Riding Club winding down for the season

The 4th Annual Maverick Riding Club Horseshow was held at Idlewild Arena on Saturday, Sept 20.

The 4th Annual Maverick Riding Club Horseshow was held at Idlewild Arena on Saturday, Sept 20.

The weather was perfect for the 31 competitors of all ages in both English and Western classes.

This was a schooling show and a great place to try out what a horse show is like in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our show judge offered suggestions and tips to the competitors on how to improve their skills and gave an idea of what a judge is looking for.

You do not need to be a member of the club to participate, but you must have current Horse Council of BC insurance.

This event has grown over the past four years and we look forward to giving out more beautiful rosette ribbons next year!

The Maverick Riding Club is winding down for the year, with two gymkhanas left and our annual awards banquet on November 15.

The club will start up again in the spring with the first monthly gymkhana at the end of April, skill development clinics, parade entries, drill team, trail rides and always welcomes new members and suggestions. The community has donated a lot towards improving Idlewild arena so let’s keep using it.
