The Raging River Riders saddle club was formed in 1964. Its purpose is to bring together people interested in horses and to provide an educational and fun atmosphere in which to promote good horsemanship. For 50 years, the family-oriented Raging River Riders have actively pursued this goal.

Some of their interests include western gaming shows, parades, overnight campouts, prize rides and day rides.

Social events include family potlucks, campouts, Christmas caroling, and awards banquets. The club’s community involvement includes working with Fall City Community Association, serving on clean-up committees, fund raising such as helping purchase the town’s first-aid unit and supporting local food banks.

In 1983, the club designed and constructed the horse arena in Riverfront Park. This support continues with participation in annual Valley festivals including Fall City Days.

Following the parade, the riders will host a free Play Day across the river at the arena in Riverfront Park. Visitors are invited to bring the family and enjoy the afternoon with the riders.

To find put more about Raging River Riders, newcomers are invited to attend their monthly meetings, 7:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month at Valley Christian Assembly, 32725 S.E. 42nd St, Fall City.
