Sherburne County Rise Up Riders Saddle Club


The Beginning

A group of horse enthusiasts met at the home of Tammy Scheffler on the evening of November 18th, 2011 with the purpose of joining together and starting a new WSCA saddle club. There were 16 individuals in attendance. As members of WSCA, we were informed of a vacancy at the Sherburne County Fairgrounds. Due to the prime location and need for economical shows, we were unable to turn down this great opportunity. We were all very enthusiastic about this opportunity, were able to build another small community almost immediately. It was great to see how many families were seeking a club to be involved with, in less than a few months SCRURSC tripled in size and continues to grow.

We are a club of all ages and multiple riding disciplines but we all have on thing in common. We all love horses and enjoy the company of those alike.  We founded this club to help promote the sport of riding horses which will also give the horse community additional opportunities to compete and share their passion of horses.

We welcome all types of horse lovers, whether you ride or spectate. Currently, we have over 50+ members and are growing every meeting. Thus far have hosted several different events including open riding, fun shows, WSCA game & pleasure shows and barrel races. We all enjoy being with our horses and making new friends, so come check us out, every person has become such an asset to our success thus far.
