The original Edmond Round Up Club was formed in 1941 at Reynolds Park on Bryant.
The original 10 Charter Members consisted of:
Jess Bryant, Carl Flesher, Harry Wright, Chick Coker, H.W. Granzow, W. Custer Service, Joe Hatten, W.R. Fisher, Wm. P. Thompson and Winfield Smith.
World War II ended most of the club’s activities and it ceased to exist for several years. Then in 1952 some interested horsemen with the aid of some of the old members, reorganized the club. They started out at the old arena at Reynolds Park on Bryant.
In 1966 the City of Edmond decided to move the arena to it’s current location at 300 N. Kelly Road. Carl Benne along with other members got together, designed and built the arena by hand, where it stands today.
In 1970 the concrete block office and concession was built.
In 2003 the City of Edmond voted to rename the arena for the club’s long term member and former President Carl Benne.
In 2022 the Edmond Round Up Club, Inc. became registered a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
