It is hard to believe that summer is over and fall is upon us. For those of us who show, we are down to two National events left this year, both in Oklahoma. US Nationals begins October 18th in Tulsa and Distance Nationals begin October 25th in Vinita. If you have local/regional/national show successes you would like to have published in our newsletter, please e-mail them to Karissa Held at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to share more stories featuring our members.
The yearly AHA convention starts November 12th. Please keep an eye out for the list of resolutions from AHA and make sure to let your delegates (Tim Schaap, Nancy Miller, Deb Duick, Vikki Dalton, or Kevin Price) know what you think and what is important to you. Remember we are representing YOU.
It was a tough summer for the Association. Our spring sport horse show, with enormous effort from the show committee, had a wonderful turnout and success with less than ideal weather conditions. Unfortunately our pleasure shows did not share in the success. Declining horse counts and classes per horse resulted in lower revenues and some significant losses. The WAHA Show Committee NEEDS your input in order to organize these events.
Here is to wishing everyone a great fall with your horse.
