Cedar Creed Saddle Club is mainly a boarding and lesson/training facility. However, outside hauls ins to use the facilities are allowed but must have an appointment made 24 hours in advance. The facility offers three good size arenas and trails. The saddle club offers lessons and clinics. They usually have something going on regularly. You can’t miss it as the arena has red pipe fencing and there is a sign which states Walnut Creek Arena. When turning into the ranch running water, the restrooms, and the bunk house (being renovated) are on the left and the large arena is on the right. There are plenty of hitching posts around the ranch, even one right in front of the restrooms, which is very handy. The pavilion (also under renovation) is just a little further back and also has a restroom.
This facility has been through some changes and used to be known as Rusty’s Walnut Creek Ranch. Many of us have fond memories of Rusty and riding here. The Campbells are honored to take the reins for Cedar Creek. An update to this post entry is needed.
