We had over 20 people attend our April general meeting. Those that were brave enough to venture out on Friday the 13th were rewarded with good food and an interesting presentation by Lori Oleson on the T-Touch Method. I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Lori for taking the time to speak to our club!
Our Ranch Playday is likely a day away as you read this newsletter. The event is May 5th at Blomquist Arena. Registration starts at 9:00am, practice 10:00am to 12:00 noon and competition begins at 1:00. Hot dog lunch will be available for purchase while you contemplate how you’re going to maneuver the obstacles for a win! Don’t miss it! Lots of fun for you and your horse and prizes for the winners! Come out and support your club.
If you’re ready to camp with your horse, there is a non-SMHA event right around the corner. Coit Campout at Coe Park on Memorial Day weekend, May 25 – 28. If you don’t like to cook, this event is for you. For a small fee your meals will be catered for you. What a deal! Leaves a lot more time to ride! Contact Chere Bargar for more information.
Our next general meeting is Friday May 11th. We will feature our popular “Taco Bar” for a nominal fee. We will also have Dr Angel Fletcher speaking on First Aid for the Trail. Come enjoy the great food and show our guest speakers that we appreciate the time and effort it takes to speak to our club. A good turnout always lets the speaker know we were interested in what they had to say.
Keep up the enthusiasm! Our club continues to grow. We’ve most recently added five new members to our roster! Make sure to introduce yourselves to our newest members and make them feel welcome.
