Why The "Bug Club"?

The first Bug Club horse was a big 16.2 hand tall Quarter Horse named Tommy. Though big, he was amazingly gentle with kids, and even the tiniest child could safely ride him. When Tommy would be carefully giving a toddler their first ride, we'd often comment that Tommy had a "bug" on his back. Seeing such a large horse with a tiny person would always make us smile! In honor of Tommy and his "bugs", The Bug Club came to be.
