By July summer is in full swing and so is the Gilmer County Saddle Club.

On the 4th of July many members participated in the Downtown Ellijay Fourth of July Parade.  It was a fun event that members and spectators enjoyed! It is always wonderful to see the kids out smiling.

This weekend, Saturday June 12th, will be the annual National Racking Horse Associations St. Jude show. This is always a great event where the money goes for a great cause! Join us for the show which starts at 6:00 pm. And be sure not to miss the silent auction; always a wonderful selection of items to bid on.

The rain has delayed it twice but we are happy to announce that the Charles Sumner Memorial show will be held July 19th. The show will begin at 4:00 pm.

Also this month will be ending with our Open Horse show scheduled for July 26th.

Just a reminder to all members that we are always needing volunteers. Without volunteers these shows would not be possible. So we appreciate all the help we can get! If you are unable to volunteer but still want to help our concession stand is always in need of home baked goods or other donated items such as individual chip bags, or candy.
