The club was formed in the early 1960's. The first activities of the Trailblazers Saddle Club consisted of many trail rides followed by a potluck dinner. Some of these rides were overnight rides. The members would ride all day and share stories over a campfire at night.
Then the competitive edge entered the picture and the club would become involved in running horse shows. The first shows were held in the Arkansaw and Durand area, running on a makeshift arena. The saddle club was fortunate to have some land donated for construction of an arena. This arena is now in Pepin, WI and has been host to a number of excellent shows.
The club still has some of the original members: Bob Manor and family, Jim Westberg and family and Warren Bradshaw and family. The club has a growing membership, with the members attending trailrides, parades and competing at local events.
Our club belongs to the Western Saddle Club Association as well as the South Eastern Minnesota Saddle Club Association and now the United Barrel Racing Association.
