The Nooksack Valley Riders - Check us out!
Do you enjoy running barrels, poles, flags, and such with your horse? Are you looking for fairly inexpensive family entertainment? Would you like to exercise your horse in an indoor arena in the winter, or trail ride with friends? Do you like to volunteer to do things to benefit your community and beyond? If so, this may be the club for you!
Our members are from every walk of life, and from all over Western Washington (although most are from Whatcom County).
We have a lot of families in our membership, and enjoy seeing family participation at our shows. Although there is a lot of competition in
what we do, it is friendly competition focused on seeing improvement in our times, averages, and achievements and seeing everyone succeed!
Our members are very encouraging of one another, and are as excited seeing others progress, as themselves. We compete on the club level, but we are also affiliated with PSHA (Patterned Speed Horse Association) and enjoy gathering with friends and fellow horsemen from around our state. Many of our members compete at the State level and even at the Interstate level.
Our club does exhibition shows in front of the grandstands at the Northwest Washington Fair every August in Lynden, WA. We are also very involved in giving back to our community through a huge annual fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation involving our whole community as well as other fundraisers as the need arises, including but not limited to disaster relief, local food bank distribution, and raising money to meet medical and crisis needs in and around our state.
