    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.
