The St. Vrain Roundup Club (SVRC) is a non-profit, “for fun” organization of horse lovers and families. The club provides an opportunity for people of all skill levels to participate in low-stress and low-cost horse shows and gymkhanas as well as have social opportunities with people who have similar interests.

The club typically has regular shows at the Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont during the months of April through September. The 2024 Schedule of Events is previewed on the home page along with the club membership forms and fairground waivers you’ll need to complete. 

Social events include monthly club meetings during the winter months with some featuring equine-related guest speakers, a Thanksgiving dinner, a holiday party with year-end awards, and ride-outs such as clinics and trail rides.


The club depends heavily on its members to put on shows and events.  Club members provide the support for club shows (flagging, announcing, ribbons, etc.). Members are required to volunteer at one show each season in order to qualify for year-end rewards. Use this link to sign up for your favorite roles!

All Shows are OPEN SHOWS! Shows provide an opportunity for families to show and compete together, and they help get 4-H and horse show parents off the bleachers and into the saddle. Classes are divided by age levels and there is a novice class for new adult riders. Club members participating in shows can earn points for their division as well as Buckle Series championships.

Horse shows normally include traditional western horsemanship, pleasure, reining or western riding, and showmanship classes. In addition, we top off the show with barrel racing, pole bending, and a fun event such as flag racing. Walk/Trot and Lead Line classes are available for the youngsters. Points are accumulated and year-end awards are given each year to winners by division. Awards include items such as silver belt buckles, breast collars, tack bags, etc.

SVRC started in approximately 1956 in Longmont. Some of the original members still participate and have grandchildren in the club. The club originally met at a small arena just west of 9th and Hover. In the early 1960s an arena was built on the Selby’s property, which can still be seen (a little worn, but still there) just south of the Diagonal on 95th Street. The club currently uses membership dues and profits from shows to rent the facilities at the Boulder County Fairgrounds.
