BlackJack Saddle Club Plans Shows

The BlackJack Saddle Club has two point shows planned for the month of August, announced by Albert De La Garza, president.

They are scheduled Saturday mornings, August 22nd and August 29th, in Manhattan’s Cico Park at 9 o’clock.  

While all BlackJack Saddle Club shows are open to the public, club members’ points are tabulated for yearend awards.

Performance and speed events are planned with competition divided into age groups. Rosettes 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.

“BlackJack 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 shows are September 20, and October 24, both tentatively in Cico Park at 9 o’clock, De La Garza said.
