Saddle Club to have first meeting

Posted:

MILTON, Ga. – Horse enthusiasts will soon have a common meeting place – the Milton Saddle Club.

The newly formed group will be where “equine of all disciplines unite,” said co-founder Kathy Cobb.

“We’ve been talking about it for a long time, and now we have our first meeting set up,” Cobb said. “We are very excited.”

The meeting will be Oct. 26 at Shannondale Farms, off Birmingham Road. A main focus of the club is to sponsor a rejuvenated “Milton Rodeo,” tentatively scheduled for October 2015. Carl Black Roswell will be the title sponsor. The meeting in October will be concerned with discussing options for the rodeo as well as a trail ride through Milton, scheduled for 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sept. 6. Cobb said there will be food and games at the trail ride, and riders are asked to bring a side dish.

“We are also opening a division of 4H,” Cobb said.

The inaugural meeting will be Sunday, Oct. 26 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at Shannondale Farms, 2225 Birmingham Road, Milton.
