Riding Club To


Events for 'U' Equestrians

For men and women who wish to
get away from the study grind and
into the "great outdoors," the Rid-
ing Club meets twice weekly, spon-
soring trail and ring-rinding at
the Huron River Stables.
A re-organization meeting of
this co-recreational club will be
held at 5:10 p.m. Monday in the
small lounge of the Women's Ath-
letic Building.
Plans will be made at this meet-
ing for the coming semester's pro-
gram of riding activities, according
to co-manager's Erwin Perelstein
and Peg. Davis.
Many Horses
Fifteen to 20 horses are available
for students' use, ranging from
quiet horses for beginners and non-
riders, to more spirited horses for
the more advanced riders.
"No previous riding experience
is necessary," the co-managers

During the semester, the club
will attend other horse shows and
visit ranches in the area to see dif-
ferent breeds of horses.
Trail Riding
When the weather is nice, mem-
bers will go trail riding, and if it
rains, there is an indoor riding ring
at their disposal.
"We've planned all sorts of ac-
tivities, such as hayrides, supper
rides, frolicking, square dances and
associated activities," Miss Davis
Within the club is a special drill
team, 'Crop and Saddle,' which
will be appearing in the Michigras
parade and will perform at var-
ious exhibitions.
For riding in the ring, contin-
uous music will be supplied from
current recording artists ranging
in mood from the classics to mo-
dern "rock-and-roll" favorites.
