The Blackjack Saddle Club has a points show scheduled Sunday, June 16, 9 o’clock, at the Stanley Stout Arena, Manhattan.

This is a makeup for the May show that was canceled due to wet arena conditions.

Albert De La Garza, club president, said all Blackjack Saddle Club shows are open to the public. However, club members’ points are tabulated for yearend awards, with memberships available for purchase.

Performance and speed events are planned with competition divided into age groups. Awards are to be presented to the top six riders in each class.

Highpoint awards will be given in both performance and speed divisions of each age category.

Advance entries are not essential, but have been requested with lower fees.

“Black Jack Saddle Club is dedicated to our members,” De La Garza said. “We strive to make each activity a pleasant and safe environment for all participants.”

Additional points shows this year include July 20, Little Apple Riders Equestrian Center, Saint George; August 10, Stanley Stout Arena; September 8, Cico Park; and October 6, Cico Park.

Memberships, show bill, entry details and additional information about the Blackjack Saddle Club are available by emailing blackjacksaddleclub@hotmail.com.
