Lake Riders Saddle Club Awards

Lake View, IA:  The Lake Riders Saddle Club held its 2015 year end awards banquet on December 6th in Ida Grove.

The Lake Riders Saddle Club, Lake View, Iowa was organized in April 1965 to promote horseback riding, community service, and having fun. The club currently has 46 members from the surrounding areas.

The club participates in parades in surrounding towns and host Summer Fun Days at the local club grounds. Each summer the club has several trail rides in the areas, which are all open to the public.

The club has taken part in the Pony Express Ride for Camp Sunnyside for over 30 years to collect money for disabled children and adults so they may attend camp for one week, free of charge each summer. The Lake Riders Saddle Club has raised over $100,000 for Pony Express.

Belonging to the Lake Riders Saddle Club is a family affair with children, parents, and grandparents all taking part in the activities.

Award winners accumulated points by competing in Summer Fun Days, riding in parades, and helping with local club fundraisers.
