Saddle Up Riding Club
Coming into 2019 we will be doing a lot of different events and fundraising. We started a GoFundMe page in order to help us recoup from the losses we had from 2017 & 2018. No one person or program is perfect but we have set a goal to make sure our program is of the up most integrity. Our main goal this year is to make sure you as our beloved participants and donors have all the information inside and outside of our program. We want to be 100% transparent with you, we want you to know what your doing or what your donating matters. We really want you to know how your time and donation affects our horses, and our riders. If at any point you have any questions you can contact our liaison Alexis Williamson either by email: Acwilliamson@yahoo.com or phone: (727)215-5077. You can also ask any instructor or staff member and they will be able to assist you. We hope you have an amazing year in 2019 and we thank you for your time and continued support with our program.
As we head into the new year please remember that all rider and volunteer paperwork has to be redone. Please bring the signed paperwork with you to the barn. Thank you for your time and cooperation.
Saddle Up is a place not just for riding horses, rather is a place of the heart.
Saddle Up is a place not just for riding horses, rather Saddle Up is a place of the heart. Everyone who works or volunteers at Saddle Up does so with their heart, not just their hands. This is a program where people connect with horses, which is a wonderful thing in itself. But it is so much more than that. This is a place where people connect with each other; where relationships are built that change the lives of the riders as well as the volunteers; where genuine love and commitment are evidenced at every practice session and at every event. Saddle Up is a place of equalization: every person, no matter rider or volunteer, no matter able bodied or disabled, no matter mentally challenged or fully mentally functional , all experience the sheer joy that comes through the triumph of the human spirit
Recently we all lost someone very close to us. His name was Flip. He wasn't just a horse but apart of the family. He helped so many throughout his life and was a great Hero to everyone. This horse started Saddle Up and will always be in our hearts. You will live on through our hearts and through this program. Thank you for everything you gave to us, you are dearly missed.
