Since riding is one of the most
popular sports among Michigan coeds,
the Women's Athletic Association
now sponsors' two clubs for experi-
enced riders.
Crop and Saddle, the original rid-
ing club, consists of a group of skilled
horsewomen, while the University
Women's Riding Club membership
includes riders who have had less ex-
perience. Dona Guimaraes is presi-
dent of Crop and Saddle, and Barbara
Brady heads U.W.R.C.
Semester Tryouts
Tryouts are held at the beginning
of each semester for membership in
the two clubs, and members of each
group are chosen on the basis of their
skill. Cro. and Saddle consists for
the most part of juniors and seniors
and takes most of its members from
the U.W.R.C.
The club members ride inside dur-
ing the winter season, drilling and
practicing precision riding. Crop and
Saddle meets at 5 p.m. Tuesday and
the U.W.R.C. members ride at 4 p.m.
During the spring riding season,

the clubs have planned outside rid-
ing, with trail rides in addition to
their regular practices. Eventually
they hope to practice jumping and
other advanced skills. Crop and Sad-
dle and the U.W.R.C. members also
plan to have supper rides together
this spring.
Climaxing the year's activities of
the riding clubs is the annual Crop
and Saddle horse show, which will be
held this year in May. Members of
both clubs and other women as well
may enter the show, which features
competition in jumping and other
phases or horsemanship.
Coveted Awards
Each year at the show a cup is
awarded to the best Crop and Saddle
rider. Karin Larsen was winner of
this/coveted prize last year. In ad-
dition, a pair of silver spurs is award-
ed to the member of Crop and Saddle
who has most improved her riding
The two riding clubs offer fun and
experience to coeds who are skilled
riders, and afford them an excellent
opportunity to improve their riding
