North Iowa Saddle Club


North Iowa Saddle Clubs Association (NISCA) is a group of saddle clubs organized to provide an open show circuit in a fun, safe, family environment. 


Each show offers payback for classes on show day. If nominated, members are also earning points towards year-end awards. To nominate, participants must first join one of our member saddle clubs. Then purchase a nomination number and use that number for the same horse/rider combination at each show. (Club memberships and nominations must be renewed annually.)

NISCA Votes to Suspend Nominations and Points Process for 2020

The NISCA club reps and officers met May 18, 2020, and unanimously decided that the clubs will not host shows that are NISCA sanctioned in 2020. There will be no nominations and no points for the year. All previously collected Nomination Fees will be mailed back to those who nominated. Any shows hosted by our NISCA member clubs in 2020 will be purely for their own profit and held at their own desire when considering the status of the COVID-19 outbreak.

We will attempt to get prepaid orders for a commemorative T-shirt if we have a good response. Details will be provided in a separate post coming SOON; watch also for messages from Jo Brandau if you have paid for a T-shirt already.

Club Reps will be contacting the advertisers regarding payments submitted for Ads.

HOWEVER, NISCA intends to consider crowning a Junior and a Senior Cowgirl Queen; having a possible end-of-season fun show (August 29 is the possible date) and HOPEFULLY having a family potluck/election at the end of the year. This page will remain active as we advertise our supporting clubs and individuals and pursue other opportunities! Don’t count us out, we just aren’t counting points!

Congratulations to our Jr Queen Kylee Kruse and Sr Queen Kylee Smith!!
