Jump Club

Jump Club is for adult riders looking to improve skills and learn more about the sport of Hunter/Jumper riding. We meet monthly for brunch and plan Jump Club events. Jump Club attends clinics and shows both as spectators and competitors.  If you think that the only thing better than riding horses is talking about horses, then Jump Club is for you.
