Summer is in Full Swing at BISC!

Summer is here and the event season is underway at Bainbridge Island Saddle Club. This newsletter will bring you up to speed on scheduled events at the club. You can register for all clinics and shows on the Events page of our website.

BIPC Camp at BISC July 11th through July 14th

We are excited to have the Bainbridge Island Pony Club return for their annual camp at Bainbridge Island Saddle Club. The grounds will be closed to members from Monday, July 11th through Thursday, July 14th as the Pony Club has rented it for exclusive use. The grounds will be open to members on Friday, July 15th.

Cavaletti Clinic, Sunday July 17th with Christine Headley

Join us on Sunday, July 17th for a cavaletti clinic with Chrisine Headley. Christine is a USDF Bronze Medalist, USPC "A" Graduate and USDF Certified instructor. The clinic is open to all ages, disciplines and riding levels. We will have a fun set of pole exercises in the arena to focus on rhythm, tempo, straightness and suppleness - all of the principles required for balance and free forward movement. There will also be special attention from the clinician on the various ways that your position can help your horse to better understand your aids & communicate with your horse. We still have riding slots available. Sign up on the website.

Volunteer opportunities available, will give you a front row seat to all the action. Contact Melissa Davis if you are interested in volunteering.

Capital Improvement - Water Trailer

At the general membership meeting on March 6th, the club approved the purchase of a water trailer. The board promised the membership at that time that we would first ensure that our well could fill the water trailer prior to moving ahead with purchase. We are still working on those details. This means we are back to using our water wheel for the summer events which takes several shifts the day prior to an event. If you are available to help with watering the arena prior to any of our scheduled events, please drop us an email at and we will get you on the schedule.


Keep an eye out on the BISC Website and Facebook page for upcoming events and announcements.
