Riding Club Ideas

I wasn't sure where to put this, so I thought this would work. We have a small riding club...our main "event" is Gymkhanas. We schedule Horse Shows but there is never enough interest. So what I am wondering is if anyone has any ideas to perk up interest. Any other events we could do to get people interested. Let me know:)

You need to have a great advertisement! Make posters and put them in as many businesses/public places/barns as you are allowed. You can also post it in an online horseshow calender like this.
Horses: Horse Shows, Horses For Sale, Stables, Stallions, Breeds
Also have ribbons/prizes if you can afford it, and maybe special awards like "Best Groomed Horse" and such, people will be more likely to go if there are ribbons/prizes involved.
You can also start an mailing list of people interested, and send out emails a couple weeks before with an attached class list, entry form etc.
Also make sure there's a class for people of all skill levels.
Hope I helped some :3

We do do alot of stuff like that. We have ribbons and trophies and smaller prizes. We advertize as much as we can. We send out emails every once in awhile to let people know whats up. I made up a little website for the club. Still needs some work though. Mile 'O' Riding Club
I just think we are losing interest which is why I am trying to think of other ideas to get people interested again. We have quite a few people that frequent our gymkhanas but nothing like a few years ago.

When I click the link to you website, all it has is a white page with the web address on it.
Hmm...maybe you just need to amp up your efforts in order to gain some interest, but for now make sure that the people who do come have a great time, despite the lack of competitors. It may take some time in order to have dedicated competitors.
Okay, the website is showing up now :3.

I don't know if this would work since its just a small riding club. But have you thought about having a judging day? We had them all the time in 4H adn they were great! We would set up a day and have a class of riding geldings, brood mares and then some thing like goats or cows or whatever really... its a good way to learn conformation if you have any younger club members...just an idea. I miss 4H!
