SaddleUp Arena was a dream come true for a lady by the name of Nan, an avid horsewoman, who had found her twenty acres of paradise here; the perfect spot for “her” place and that of her riding buddies. Nan had to move on, but her neighbors got together to ensure that SaddleUp Arena would continue and improve.
