Clomping h o o f s, squeeking
fiddles and calls of "Allemade left
with your partners, dos-e-do, and
a grand right and left!" will be
heard when the -University Riding
Club schedule of activities for the
year gets under way Monday, Oct.
Square dances, starting at a
walk on horseback, leading up to
a trot and then graduating into
a canter, as club members become
more proficient at the maneuvers,
will be one of the highlights on
the agenda, according to club co-
managers Peg Davis and Erwin
They will be conducted as
though the -horse and rider were
a single person on two feet. As
students go through the intricate
maneuvers, the square dance will
be complete with music, a caller
and partners in each set of eigth.
Trial Riding
T r a i I riding during nice
weather, drills and games are also
planned for the season. Students
with any amount of riding ex-
perience are welcome to join the
organization which meets to ride
twice weekly. No specific lessons
are given but if anyone wishes in-
struction or advice, club members
usually help them out.
After the regular riding sessions,
Perelstein and Miss Davis have
planned a social coffee hour with
refreshments such as soft drinks,,
hot chocolate, coffee, cookies and
doughnuts to refuel the riders as
they return.
Special team drills such as pre-
cise maneuvers in twos, threes,
and fours, close order work and.
other formations will also be prac-
ticed for those desiring this type
of riding. In conjunction with the
club is a drill and exhibition team
called the Crop and Saddle which
meets once or twice monthly.
Barrel Races
Playing tag and running barrel
races can become quite thrilling,
especially on horseback. A special-
ty game of the club is balloon tag

SADDLE UP! - Co-managers Peg Daps and Erwin Perelstein of
the Riding Club saddle up in preparation for the club's organiza-
tional meeting at 5:10 p.m. Monday, Oct. 3, in the Women's
Athletic Building. Included in the year's plans are square dances
on horseback, as a special feature.

in which all'club members carry
balloons while mounted and each
person tries to pop the other's
balloon. The last one left with an
unpopped balloon is the winner.
In the barrel races, students
maneuver the horses weaving in
and out between lined-up barrels.
The one who completes the course
in the shortest time is the winner.
During nice weather, group
members will depart on picnic
trail rides which take around
three hours. After riding a few
miles down a trail they tie the
horses up, cook dinner outside,
then saddle up and ride back to
the stables.
Hayrides Planned
In a few weeks the activity
schedule will get under way with
an evening hayride for members

Also planned are trip to nearby
horse shows and rodeos. Miss Da-
vis mentioned an occasion last
year when the group piled into
the back of an old pick-up truck
on a Saturday afternoon. Sitting
on old blankets in the truck the
students watched the Rodeo Cow-
boys Association Rodeo.
If possible, M'ss Davis and
Perelstein would like to visit sur-
rounding horse farms to see the
horses and have the owners tell
about them.
In the late spring, the club is
sponsoring a horse show with
judging in different contest classes
such as speed and action, exhibi-
tion work, and horsemanship.
The organization meeting for
this co-recreational club will be
held at 5:10 p.m. Monday, Oct.
3, in the small lounge of the
Women's Athletic Building.
