Wow what a great turnout for Johnny Butler's show! Johnny wanted me to be sure and put on the website that he is now known as the "Dirt Doctor"!
Tiffney Brantley and Lightning won the Open with a blistering 14.557.
Paylay Payton Rodeo Powell and Scooter Pooter won the Youth with a 15.419.
Charlene Cason and Pete won the Seniors with 15.350.
Our next show will be at Ryland Arena on 4/12/14. Julie DeNapoli has sponsored the show for the WPRA co approval.
Good luck to everyone going to the Shamrock Showdown in Jacksonville!
The State Show Forms have been released. Please send in your hookups ASAP as they go very fast and it all goes in as it is received. If you would like a particular barn for your stalls just write your request on the form. We cannot take any reservations by phone or email. We must have the form in our hand with payment before it goes in. Any questions just give me a call.
We had a lot of new members join the district this year. Please help make them feel welcome. We are always glad to have new members.
There are some new rules this year for the NBHA. Points in all classes will be done in a 5D format. We can still pay out however we want to as a district. They are also re-instating the one year membership rule in order to use a wild card. This means you must be a member for at least one year before you can use a wild card to go to any of the world shows. And the last change is that there is no limit to how many horses you can qualify back to the finals in a division at the world, national, or state shows.
If we have any open holes in the draw prior to the show starting all draws will be moved up to fill in the slots. I try to estimate how many entries we have at the shows but sometimes we have more or less.
The district voted to continue with payouts and awards the same as last year.
If you would like to receive awards at the end of the year and place in the top 5 of a division then the following must be paid by the State show in June.
Arlene Price has volunteered to keep track of the money and also to do the awards again this year. Arlene will be at some of the shows but you may also mail her the money if you wish. Please make checks out to Arlene Price.
