The Battle Ground Saddle Club offers sponsorships for 4-H Horse and Pony Club activities and scholarships to help support activities to improve youth members' horsemanship .   The Memorial Scholarship Fund is made possible by  generous  donations in honor of  Duke and Bethel Sheets, Herb and Lois Christopher,  Kim Dimmick, and Marilyn Auth and by annual BGSC fundraising activities. Since its establishment in 2013, the Memorial Scholarship Fund has provided support 80 young riders' experiences in horsemanship programs.    

To be eligible to request sponsorships or scholarships,  applicants must be members of the Battle Ground Saddle Club, either within a family membership or as individual Junior members (ages 14 through 17).

Other Activities to Improve Horsemanship

Other activities may include horse camps, riding clinics, or other events  that meet the goal of improving the horsemanship skills of our youth members.    To apply for financial support, download and complete the Application for Battle Ground Saddle Club Memorial Scholarship.  We recommend that the completed application be emailed to at least 10 days in advance of the event to provide the Executive Committee time to review the application.   Applications submitted after the event will not be considered.  

It is also recommended that the application  include web links or copies of printed materials that describe the horsemanship-related activity.  

Applications, award amounts, and number of scholarships will be determined by the Saddle Club Executive Committee.
