Golden Light Horse Club


Another fun filled and exciting year of the Golden Light Horse Club wrapped up last week at the AGM and awards night event.  The club had a very successful year hosting our 2nd Annual Delbert Johnson Memorial Jackpot Barrel Race which brought out competitors from around the province to a fantastic weekend of sunshine and fast horses.  We also hosted a clinic with Ron Watson in the spring, had our monthly Fun Day Gymkhana events, some social gatherings, a group trail ride and topped all of this off with an awesome day in Brisco competing for the Golden/Brisco Challenge Cup.

The Golden Light Horse club hosts all-ages, family friendly events that promote fun competition in a safe environment for all horse enthusiasts. This year we are especially proud of our kids’ improvement in their horsemanship skills and overall control in the ring, which reflects their blossoming partnerships with their ponies and horses. Our Fun Days are open events and we invite you to join us at the Rodeo Grounds in the spring to laugh with the kids, laugh at the adults, pick the prettiest horse, and enjoy a delicious burger at our concession!

We will keep you posted to these dates in the Spring with our first event being the Fun, Fat and Furry.  Thanks Ladies and Farmer for an incredible season!
