RR Saddle Club is a nonprofit organization raising funds to support horse rescue and promoting equine education to the public through lessons, camps, and scenic trail rides with the guidance of 10 resident horses. Sweethearts and bantering bank-robbing partners mount calm, gentle steeds for a private trot down the Thomas Creek Trail through the lush Oregon terrain, where saddlers might spy elk, deer, or the elusive duck-billed raccoon. Riders may opt to bring a picnic and stop for a picturesque meal among the mountains.
Private family rides can include buckaroos ages 7 and older, and conclude in a sunset marshmallow roast. Each ride begins with a brief horseback-riding lesson and a mare meet-and-greet. Riders are welcome to arrive 30 minutes early to ensure maximum trail time, and are free to help saddle, groom, and serenade their new best filly friends.
RR Saddle Club
RR Saddle Club helps connect humans without the means to own horses with equine friends and also hopes to rescue horses that are stuck in unsavory situations. Nestled in the heart of the Santiam River Valley, the club's barn houses gentle steeds who carry riders on guided trail rides through the club’s 200-acre property, past wildflower-strewn meadows, into the foothills of mountains, and through thickets of fir and maple. Visitors can also schedule pony parties for youngsters or sign up for lessons to learn the basics of riding and how to signal horses to trot, canter, and fly.
