Cannon Valley Saddle Club History
The Cannon Valley Saddle Club (CVSC) of the Faribault, Minnesota area was organized in 1954 by a small group of local horse lovers who liked to get together on a Sunday afternoon. As the club grew, CVSC's activities increased by adding member sponsored game days and trail rides. The club started hosting Open Horse Shows in 1958 and has continued the tradition ever since.
