August President’s Message

Wow, I can’t believe its August already. We’re already on the back end of summer!  You still have the opportunity to enjoy our upcoming Jack Brook campout.  Such an awesome place for both relaxing and riding with most of the amenities you enjoy at home along with fantastic trails.  Don’t miss it!  Applications and contact information is in this Eventer.

Congratulations go out to Steve Oliveira and all his SMHA parade participants.  We had a lot of involvement from our members this year and the enthusiasm and hard work paid off.  SMHA took First Place in our division and Best Overall Equestrian Group which awarded us not only bragging rights but put a $300 prize in our bank account!  Great job everyone!  Next year’s theme is “America’s National Parks – 100 Years and Counting”.  Put your thinking caps on for next year!

We also just came off a very successful June Poker Ride and Trail Trial Clinic.  We had a great turnout, tolerable weather and tons of fun!  Our poker rides and other events are getting a good reputation in the horse world and we are getting more participation because of it.  Keep up the good work!  Thanks go out to everyone who helped make this event a huge success.

At that June ride, several of you signed up on the “Are You Interested” sheet for an upcoming Randy Benson Sensory Clinic.  I am happy to report that, in part to our interest, they have set up a clinic at South Valley Equestrian located at Masten & Center on September 11th.  If you let them know you are a SMHA member, you will receive a $10 discount on registration.!  Watch for the flyer in the near future.  Hope to see many of you there.

Our next general meeting is Friday, September 9th.  Watch for details of this meeting in our next Eventer!  Happy riding everyone!!!
