Woodstock Cuba Saddle Club News
The WCSC Youth Group has been busy this year. The Youth Group hosted a free Show Ring Etiquette clinic in April with instructor Patti Barber. There were 26 mounted participants (ages 4 thru 17), with several others auditing. Ms. Barber discussed how to properly enter the show ring, spacing, passing, body positioning, horsemanship questions, and behavior outside the show ring.
The Youth Group held a car wash on June 7 and the money raised was used to send 22 kids to the TN HS Rodeo Finals, held in Memphis. They held another one Saturday July 12 and the proceeds helped fund their Youth Summer Blowout Party, scheduled for August 16.
The Youth Group hosted a free Barrel Racing clinic on June 22 with Amanda Capps from F5 Farms. Amanda gave one-on-one tips to all 17 riders who participated; after three clinic hours there were vast improvements with each child.
The Youth Group will be going on an overnight camping trip in September and a trail ride this fall, both at Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park.
The WCSC Queen and Princesses are leaders in the Youth Group events. Each year the members of Woodstock Cuba Saddle Club elect their Royalty, which consists of Queen, Princess, and Buckaroo Princess, at the annual awards banquet. For 2014, the members choose Bailee Todd as Queen, Deana Becerra as Princess and Olivia Morgan as Buckaroo Princess. This year’s banquet will be held in November, when 2015 Royalty will be chosen.
