No fooling, it’s April already! Where is the year going? We had a great turnout for our March meeting and I think everyone enjoyed our St. Patty’s corned beef dinner as well as playing “HORSE” bingo. Lots of winners, lots of fun!
I do need to share some sad news. On Saturday, March 24th, we lost a longtime member and friend, Steve Knepper. I’m sure we all know him for his commitment to the club and his awesome baked beans he prepared for a lot of our events. Steve was also heavily involved in Coe Park and was always there to lend a helping hand. He and his dad used to work cattle at Coe before it was s state park . He was also instrumental in creating what is now known as the Springs Committee at Coe He loved animals, especially his dog which has now found a home with Kitty Swindle since Steve’s dog is the mother to Kitty’s dog, Snickers. Steve will be greatly missed by all his friends at SMHA.
On a happier note, we have an upcoming ride at Coe on Saturday, April 14th. It’s the annual Wildflower ride. Although this is not a SMHA event, it is always fun. How many flowers can you name? Be at Hunting Hollow entrance ready to ride at 10:00am.
Our next club event is our Playday at Blomquist arena on Saturday, May 5th. Spread the word! Let’s get a big turnout for this event which is always a lot of fun as well as educational for you and your horse.
Next general meeting is April 13th. The club will be providing pizza for a nominal fee of $5. Please rsvp to Kathy McBride. Our guest speaker will be Lori Oleson. She will educate us on the Linda Tellington Jones T-Touch. Don’t miss it!
