Albany -- Saturday's good weather allowed for some horseplay in Dougherty County. Of course we are talking about actual horses here.

Participants of the Dougherty County Saddle Club horse show took home ribbons and prizes in various Hunter / Jumper categories.

" The Dougherty County Saddle Club is a club founded for the showing, breeding, and preservation for all horses. The club here is set up for riding, jumping, we do flat classes. We have people from about 7 or 8 counties that come here and ride with us about once a month," says club member Richard Tyson

The Dougherty County Saddle Club was founded in 1963. Saturday's event was one of nine shows held throughout the year at the DCSC show grounds.
