If you have a son or daughter between the ages of 8 and 18 years of age we would love to have you join our group. Participation for this organization comes from throughout the Treasure Valley. Following are some of our requirements.
1. Love of horses
2. Willing to learn and be part of a group
3. Love to make new friendships and travel
We are a family organization, so we do expect parents, guardian, or grandparents to be an active part of the group. We consider membership by families, not just the rider.
We hold New Member orientation in February. These meetings are for new riders and families to learn about the organization. Anyone interested in joining can contact us anytime throughout the year for more information. If you really want to see what we are all about it is best to come observe a practice.
Please feel free to contact us anytime with any questions at: email@example.com.
Every rider of every skill level is welcome; even if you have never been on a horse before. Riders are provided riding instruction and work up to the level of joining the parade team then the performing team. Once on the performance team riders can challenge themselves to level up to the jump team, the liberty team or even compete for a royalty title. Regardless of skill level every rider gets a chance to ride with the club in at least one event throughout the year.
Yes, you do need your own horse and transportation for the horse. This horse can be your own, borrowed, or leased. The horse and rider will learn how to use a tack rein properly in the spring practices. Your horse needs to be safe to ride in a group – no kicking or biting. Any breed will do. If you are in the market many people may advertise a horse for sale as an “Eh Capa Horse” or “Eh Capa Trained” but it is always best to check with the club for verification prior to purchasing for verification.
Weekly practices start in March and are held on either Friday or Saturday through May. In June we move to bi-weekly practices on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These practices are held in the Nampa area.
Membership is by family participation which means one membership fee per family, regardless of the number of kids. The fee is $250 and the uniform cost is approximately $240, uniforms typically last a few years depending on how fast your child grows. Participation in PRCA rodeos requires an additional $300 for PRCA Card membership, but participation in PRCA rodeos is not required to be in the club.
