Area equine competitors can participate in three horse events in one weekend.

The UpRiver Saddle Club will sponsor its annual horse show, trail classic and O-Mok-See Aug. 1-2 at the Santa arena. Horse tack and cash prizes are up for grabs.

Krista Moore and Payten Spear will participate in the competitive horse event organized by the UpRiver Saddle Club this year.

This will be the 54th year for the show and O-Mok-See and the 14th for the trail classic competition.

The events see an average participation of 80 to 100 riders mostly from the St. Maries, Coeur d’Alene, Princeton, Potlatch and Lewiston areas each year. Money collected from entry fees and through sponsorships is used to fund the show each year and maintain and improve the arena. This year’s sponsors, who have also supported the function in the past, will be entered into a drawing for a fishing trip on the Clearwater River.

This year’s show begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday. Registration costs $6 per class. The trail competition begins at noon and costs $15 for entry plus an additional $25 for entry into the jackpot. The O-Mok-See begins at 8:30 a.m. Sunday and costs $6 per event.

The Cathern Michael buckle, given to an outstanding club member each year, will be awarded during lunchbreak at Sunday’s events.

The arena is located at the 68.5 mile marker of State 3, just outside of Santa. Camping sections and concessions will be available.

Detailed information, rules and entry forms are available online at www.ursc.org.
