Welcome to the UCSC
Located in Monroe, NC, the Union County Saddle Club (UCSC) was founded in 1963 as a club that serves both the existing and future equine community. We offer monthly open shows, March through October, featuring English, Western, Saddle Seat and Gaited classes in a fun, competitive, family oriented environment.
UCSC shows provide a perfect schooling atmosphere for both horses and riders new to showing. Many horse owners and trainers use our shows to acclimate young “green” horses to the show environment in a more relaxed, smaller venue. Our only requirement is that you bring a current Coggins certificate and exhibit safe handling while on the grounds and in the show ring. We offer a wide range of competitive classes from Novice Riders’ classes to Payback classes so that each exhibitor can find a class that is suitable for their age and riding experience.
Our class fees are set low because we want to encourage and allow everyone the opportunity to have a chance to compete. We also offer Year End High Point Awards for competitors interested in campaigning their horse through the entire season – to be eligible, you must compete in a minimum of two English or two Western shows during the current show season.
In addition to monthly shows, The Union County Saddle Club offers both informative clinics and veterinary services clinics that are open to the public at low to no cost. Our club also has monthly meetings that are open to the public. Use the navigation links to check for show dates, our class sheet, class fees, and other announcements. Come see why the Union County Saddle Club has been around for over 50 years – one of the area’s best kept secrets!
