Arena & Events


The Union County Saddle Club operates in Northeast Georgia and falls under the Union County Recreation Department. The arena is conveniently located on Nottely Dam Road (Hwy. 325) just off of Highway 515 between Blairsville and Blue Ridge, Georgia. Get directions on the Contact Us page.

Our state-of-the-art facility includes a covered show arena, an outdoor practice area with obstacles and round pen, concession stand, a club house, and bathrooms. 

From April through October, the UCSC hosts a number of different events such as open horse shows, barrel racing events, team roping, ranch sorting, special invitational shows for the handicapped, rodeos, trail rides, clinics, exhibitions, and the annual Christmas Dinner and Awards Presentations. Recognizing its important role in the equine community, the club has always been a strong supporter of the local 4-H Club and other community events including parades.

Arena facilities are available to other clubs, groups and organizations. See the Arena Usage Agreement for more information.
