The last show of 2014 was a gorgeous day! How great is it that we can wear short sleeves and wash off our horses in December?
Jennifer Peurrung and Perky Bug won the Open with a 14.854.
Rylee Elliott and Juicy won the Youth with a 14.962.
Linda Dennis and Beauty were the fastest Senior members with a 15.570.
Our first show of the new year will be at The Suwannee River Riding Club in Branford on January 10th. We will have a short members only meeting at 12:15pm. We will be going over the entry fees, payouts, and awards for next year.
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Please check over the points and placings and let me know if there are any problems ASAP!
I have started booking shows for next year so if there is any input or suggestions please let me know. Thanks
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.
