Those were Rochester’s own Fritz Odenbach words when he referred to the success of the first  annual Paddles for Saddles.

The tournament was hosted by Midtown Athletic Club in Rochester, New York on March 3rd and raised closed to $20,000 to benefit the EquiCenter, a therapeutic equestrian center for individuals with disabilities, at-risk youth, veterans, and their families.

Next year’s Paddles for Saddles plans are already in the works, with a tentative tournament date of March 9th. For more information about playing in or sponsoring Paddles for Saddles, please contact Chrissy Gawens at or Jonathan Friedlander at
