President's Message

  • May 2016

    The response to the meeting held April 25 at the S. Jordan Equestrian Park was truly amazing with estimates of attendance ranging between 800 and 2000. The parking lot was filled and the north side arena seats were packed. County officials seated down on the floor of the arena—led by Salt Lake County mayor, Ben McAdams—attempted to answer numerous questions posed by those in attendance. The past, current and future events came up for discussion as well as SMG’s current management, possible improvements to the park and its numerous equine related activities—horse shows, clinics, boarding and so on.

    I saw numerous UHJA members at the meeting which helped boost attendance and made it clear that local residents of Salt Lake County and members of associations like UHJA support improving the present facility versus “repurposing” the park to other activities like soccer. Several different layouts were displayed on the west end of the arena for attendees to observe. I would guess that county officials and the mayor would have been impressed with the turnout but it remains to be seen what will become of the park as a result of future meetings with the mayor and the county officials. What I can tell you, is since the meeting the Salt Lake County Council did vote to improve the footing in the indoor arena — a hopeful sign that other improvements and more discussions to enhance the equestrian park are in the works.

    The Early Show, held April 10 (jumpers) and April 15-18 (hunters) drew an terrific response with about 30 jumpers and 72 hunters indicating the UHJA shows schedule is alive and well with fantastic support from over a dozen locals trainers.

    The next UHJA meeting will be held at Buca di Beppo, 7pm on May 11. Hope to see you there!
