Bainbridge Island Saddle Club is an equestrian facility adjacent to the Manzanita Park Trails. We have two outdoors arenas: a large show arena with holding area (footing replaced in 2009) and a smaller warm up ring (footing replaced in 2011). BISC has approximately 30 permanent pole stalls available to members who trailer in to use the facility, and for rent during our schooling shows. We have an office, covered picnic area, covered seating, cookshack, and judges booth. BISC is dedicated to preserving open equine space on Bainbridge Island and maintaining the size and splendor of our grounds.

• Members only (membership forms are available online)
• Helmets are required for all riders when mounted
• Riders under the age of 18 must be under the supervision of an adult while riding

Reserving the Club
Equestrian groups are able to rent the Saddle Club, both for exclusive and non-exclusive use. There are two forms to choose from:

- Non-Exclusive Use (the facility is available for other members to use while your group is using it. Fees apply for non-exclusive use only when reserving the club for two or more days).
If you have any questions about which type of reservation to make, email the club at email@example.com.
