Erie Hunt and Saddle Club Show Season Begins With Open Horse Show and Schooling Hunter Show 
 
The weekend of May 20-21 will be busy with activity at the Erie Hunt and Saddle Club.  Open Horse Show I, on Saturday, will be judged by Diane Vogel and chaired by Bobby Ann Christensen and Courtney Potts.  If you have questions, you can call them at 573-5888 or email baskmidnightshadow@yahoo.com.  If you would like to reserve stalls, please call our stabling chairperson, Michele Plazony at (630) 212-7234.  
Schooling Hunter Show I is on Sunday May 21 and will be judged by Becki Bloom.  Lake Effect Equestrian Team will chair the show. If you can help in the Secretary stand for a little bit or have questions for the schooling hunter show please call 397-8660.
The Erie Hunt and Saddle Club 2017 Show and Event Schedule is available on our website, www. eriehuntandsaddleclub.org, along with entry forms and membership application and year end awards registration forms.  
New Membership Benefits  Include Complimentary Year End Awards Upon Registration
 
The EHSC Board of Directors voted this winter to further extend the benefits of EHSC membership..  All members are eligible for year-end awards for free as a perk of membership.  Please note, that you MUST register for the year end awards by filling out the proper form prior to showing.  However, if you own more than one horse, you can register them all.  Karen Copus is in charge of year end registration and keeping track of the points throughout the show season.  If you have any questions, please email Karen at karen@eriehuntandsaddleclub.org or call her at 774-3660 or 449-6469.  Your points will not be counted until your registration is complete.  The name of the registered horse or pony must remain the same for the entire show season, as this is the only way to accurately track each horse/pony and rider combination.  Failure to use the same name for the entire season will result in a loss of points.  
This is one of the many benefits to an EHSC membership.  Other benefits are reduced stabling prices and advance signups for clinics and shows.  Also, EHSC members may use the club grounds whenever they like, we just ask that they first call a board member to make sure the grounds are open.

Erie Hunt and Saddle Club tee shirts will be available for purchase at most horse shows this season for $15.  They may also be purchased by contacting Heidi Zuck at hzuck57@hotmail.com or calling 450-7380.
