The summer months have been busy ones for members of the Gilmer County Saddle Club. Not only have members been participating at their local club shows, which are the fourth Saturday of every month, but members have also been traveling to other area Saddle Clubs to compete.
In July Murray County Saddle Club hosted the 51st annual Wagon Train, which is a 10 day show in which riders compete nightly. At the end of the ten days awards are given out for High Points in each class. In order to win high point’s award riders must compete every night and then place in the top 5 of the class to receive points.
Gilmer County Saddle Club was proud to claim 7 of those high point awards this year:
Tera Watkins with Treat Her Like A Lady won high point awards in both Gaited Halter and Country Pleasure Racking. Rainey Cantrell took home the trophy in Juvenile Racking with Southern Belles Babydoll. Katie Myer and Sucha Terrific Image won 2 year and Under Western Halter and also Open Western Halter. And Kristen Miller rounded out the group by bringing home two trophies in the running events with her horse Sensation in Texas Barrels and Arena Race.
Also in July member Zach Sanford won the title of Georgia State Champion Juvenile Saddlebred division while riding Class Act Too.
August is already shaping up to be a busy month as well as members prepare for their next show that will be held in conjunction with the County Fair on August 13th and 14th.
