 The Block and Bridle Club Emblem

This "B" symbol is very significant to Block and Bridle club members, as it represents the principles on which our club is built. Character, sincerity and a moral life are asked of members when they are initiated into the club and are depicted in the straight perpendicular of the "B". The distinct curves of the "B" are symbolic of social pleasure, mental energy, and the determination of members.

The meat block represents the material aspects of our life and our profession. The bottom half, the bridle, stands for the behavior of the B & B members, the control over ourselves that we try to maintain, the mannerisms and respect we show toward others, and the manner with which we treat animals.
