    Please join us and our show sponsor, Blue Heron Farm, this Saturday for our 4th schooling show of the 2017 season. It is also our "double points" show! So check your standing under the membership/points tab and come on down and improve your placing if you can. In preparation for this show, we will be watering all week long. If you wish to use the club and watering is underway in one arena, please use the other arena. Also, please do not move the water wheel or disrupt the wheel's cycle. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes but it is essential to water for multiple days prior the show when it is as dry and as hot as it has been this summer. Hope to see you on Saturday!

    At the conclusion of this season, I will be stepping down as president of the club. I will stay on board to help guide the next president in their duties and responsibilities but will be drastically reducing my time spent doing BISC work. With this in mind, I implore members to consider joining the governing board of the Saddle Club. There will be 3 member at large openings in 2018. Without filling these slots, the club will have no choice but to curtail some of its shows or worse. For too long, too few have been doing too much. Now it is time to step up and volunteer for Saddle Club.

    THE CLUB IS BACK IS BUSINESS! 

    WE HAVE BOTH GENERAL LIABILITY AND PROPERTY AGAIN!

    We are very close to solving our insurance dilemma.

    I expect to reopen the club in a day or so.

    This hiccup in coverage was the result of our carrier leaving the State of Washington and did not reflect upon our excellent risk profile.  

    Finding coverage took a bit of time because we needed to entertain different bids from different agencies.

    This closure will be over soon and will not effect any of our scheduled events in August and September. 

    We are looking very forward to partnering with the Lower Puget Sound Dressage Club the weekend of August 11-12-13, hosting our 4th (double points) Hunter/Jumper Show August 19th, hosting our final Hunter/Jumper Show on September 23rd and hosting our second Dressage Schooling Show on October 6-7.

    More to come shortly!

    DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES OUT OF OUR CONTROL, THE CLUB NEEDS TO CLOSE TO ALL RIDING ACTIVITIES ON JULY 3, 2017. WE HAVE EXPERIENCED A LAPSE IN OUR LIABILITY INSURANCE COVERAGE AND WHILE WE RE-NEGOTIATE COVERAGE WITH A NEW CARRIER, WE MUST CLOSE THE CLUB TO ALL RIDING/EQUESTRIAN/WALKING ACTIVITIES ON THE CLUB PREMISES. WE WILL ALLERT MEMBERS IMMEDIATELY UPON SECURING NEW COVERAGE AND RE-OPENING THE CLUB.

    Starting Thursday afternoon with the set up of the dressage court, both BISC arenas will be closed. This is a big weekend at BISC; on Friday dressage schooling rounds are scheduled, on Saturday we are hosting our Spring Dressage Schooling Show and on Sunday the BI Pony Club is piggy backing on our set up and hosting a Dressage Rally. It promises to be a fun, dressage filled few days!

    Puget Sound Energy is doing some electrical line improvements in the Day Road area and needs to pass through Saddle Club for some of their work.

    The main road in and out of the club is a bit torn up and there are large pieces of equipment strewn about the area. 

    It may be impossible to drive a trailer in or around the circle in the next few days. There will be holes in the ground and ditches to avoid so best to stay clear of the club for a few days.

    Work should be concluded by Thursday.

    Thanks for your patience.
