Fun times for horse lovers.

The Golden Light Horse Club is holding a fun session on Sunday Sept. 25 at the rodeo grounds, and they encourage anyone interested to come on out.

“We’re a club that has been around for a long long time,” said club member Shelley Black. “It’s just been dormant for awhile.”

The club has about 15 active members says Black, but they are always looking for more.

They welcome young and old, beginners and experts.

“We really want to encourage people to take part, or just come out and watch,” said Black.

The session will include five classes, for example barrel racing, in either English or western, at a cost of $2 per class.

It starts at 10 a.m. and will run until about 2 p.m. with a barbecue lunch. Anyone who has their own horse should bring it, and those without should come anyway and hopefully they can be paired up with a horse.

“I grew up in Golden, and with this club, and on Sundays the stands would be full of people watching,” said Black. “I really want to get back to that.”
