If you are a lover of horses and would appreciate belonging to a club where there are others that hold your same interests, check out the Gilmer County Saddle Club. Located in the beautiful North Georgia Mountain town of Ellijay, the club offers horse shows and community events throughout the year.
Membership is a minimal fee that you can check out on their website as well as event information. Some of the great benefits of belonging to the club are that a member can practice any day of their choosing at the arena. On Thursdays the members all gather together to ride horses of a variety of breeds. On the third Thursday of each month, each member that would like to attend, brings a covered dish to enjoy time with each other. On bad weather days, they meet at a restaurant.
This is such a great way to enjoy something you love and meet people with your same interests. All the while the club hopes to instill values and interests of horses in the younger generation so the club will continue to thrive. Other available saddle clubs include the Copper Basin and Union County clubs for those that may live closer to those areas.
