I’d like to start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and got a lot of riding in too!
I’d like to thank you all for having the confidence in me to once again represent SMHA as your club President. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I would like to say that my goals this year are to:
1) increase the size of our membership. We all know that the way to do this is for each of us to bring in just one new member this coming year. I know you can do it!!
2) I would like to find a way to spark more interest in events and getting new members more involved in the planning and execution of those events.
3) The club needs to keep our finger on the pulse of what’s happening in our area to be able to keep existing trails open and do what we can to help promote new areas to ride. We need to keep our horse community “horse friendly” for years to come.
Last but not least, we all need to have fun! Get out there and ride more!!
As you know, there is no January general meeting but we will meet on February 10th for our first meeting of 2017. I think we will try to have our annual soup/chili contest so get your favorite recipes ready. Watch the February Eventer for more details. I would love to see everyone at our meeting and better yet, bring a friend!
See you all next month. I will leave you with this thought:
