Hello SMHA members,
Well, 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 along with your
outstanding board members. We had a very successful 2017 with
both our events and bringing in several new members.
1) At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I would like to
say that one of my goals this year is to continue to push for new
members! 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
2) I would like to continue the enthusiasm around 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.
4) Last but not least, we all need to have fun! Get out there
and ride more!!
As you know, our January meeting is our annual Soup/Chili Contest.
Bring your best recipe on Jan 12th and try to take the coveted
trophy from Ron Lowery. I would love to see everyone at our
meeting and better yet, bring a friend! The board meets the week
following our general meeting to set the 2018 calendar. If you have
an idea for an event, let us know at the January meeting so we can
get it planned!
