    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.

    Interested in volunteering to help with the clinic? Contact Kylee Stanton Hicks at (206) 412-7763

    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 bainbridgesaddleclub@gmail.com and we will get you on the schedule.

     

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

    Beginner level mounted archers welcome, all archery gear included. Intermediate riding skills recommended (walk, trot, canter confidently on a loose rein and remain in control).

    Horses are shedding, rain is in the foreseeable forecast and if you listen close you can hear the grass growing! Spring is here and so is the beginning of the show and event season for Bainbridge Island Saddle Club! We are excited to have our horse community back at the club this year.

    Volunteer Hours

    The Bainbridge Island Saddle Club Board voted to approve the requirement of volunteer hours to qualify for year-end awards. As a non-profit, volunteer run organization our members are the backbone of our club. Volunteers are needed for all aspects of running the club, from organizing events, coordinating volunteers, fundraising, and keeping our facilities pristine and operational. Here are the volunteer hour requirements for 2022:

    6 years and under – exempt

    6-12 years old – 2 hours per year

    13 and over – 10 hours per year

    Family Membership – 15 hours per year

    Facilities Committee Chair Needed

    The club has an opening for a Facilities Committee Chair. The Committee Chair organizes the work that needs to be done at the club from mowing, arena dragging, capital improvement and repairs. This is a great way to meet your volunteer hours and working with other members. Please reach out to Melissa Davis if you are available.


    Upcoming Events

    Sunday, March 20th 10:00am Volunteers Needed:

    Work party to complete the storage shed which will house the supplies that are currently taking up space in one of the bathrooms. We need a few extra sets of hand to help complete the storage shed. All hours worked count towards the volunteer hours requirements.

    Saturday, March 26th 10:00am – 2:00pm Spring Clean Up:

    Our annual event to get the club ready for show season! We need many hands for this one. Bring garden tools, gloves, leaf blowers, and weed whackers. All hours worked count towards the volunteer hours requirements.

    April 9th – Hunter/Jumper Show is cancelled

    Due to the recent EVH-1 outbreak, the BISC board has decided to err on the side of caution and cancel our April 9th show. We are looking to add another Hunter/Jumper show on October 1st. Our first show of the season is on May 7th.  

    2022 Events

    Keep an eye on the events page on the website. We plan to hold several clinics this year including Mounted Archery, Cavaletti, and Ride Physio. If you are interested in hosting a clinic for the discipline of your choice, please reach out to the board.

    The club will offer one Dressage schooling show this year, tentatively scheduled for August 27th.

    Capital Improvement – Water Trailer

    At the general membership meeting on March 6th, the club approved the purchase of a water trailer. Estimated cost is $12,000. This will allow us to water the arena more efficiently for shows and clinics held during the summer. Before purchasing the trailer, we are exploring options for filling the 1,000-gallon tank. The most affordable option may be to add a holding tank to the well house for filling the water trailer. If you have any expertise in this area please reach out with your suggestions.
