If the UHJA website looks a bit different to you this month, IT IS! Thanks to our online manager, Lee Rech, we have a totally new website prepared by Third Sun Productions. We hope that you will visit the site often and enjoy many of the new features.
We also have a new board member, Claire Hoffmann, who is taking over for Lindsay Ardmore who recently resigned from that post. Thanks to Lindsay for her past contributions to UHJA.
Next on the UHJA Calendar is a hunter show at River Bend 6/4-7, then the rescheduled jumper show at Lynnleigh Farm on 6/14 and then the rescheduled jumper show at Rose Ranch on 6/21. Check out the new UHJA site Calendar for entry forms and schedules. Unfortunately, the hunter show at Lynnleigh Farm was cancelled due to uncooperative weather.
The UHJA show, June 26-28, is in the planning stages with a brand new hunter schedule this year, Jumpers will compete Wednesday, June 26 followed by hunter completion through Sunday, The show will offer plenty of prize money, $1,000 for jumpers and even more for hunters. We are hoping for a good response including several Idaho riders who are planning to attend.
Several UHJA shows have joined the LEGIS League program, a California innovation which offers points and prizes to riders who choose to sign up and compete. Riders who accumulate the required number of points at UHJA show become eligible to compete at three finals competitions including one at Scottsdale, AZ. In the fall.
I am writing this letter today to every member of the UHJA to express the pride I have in my heart for this amazing organization. Annie Godfrey and I have just completed our first UHJA “A” rated horse show.
As for many shows we had a few hiccups.
But the members of our club came together at our show in a way that brought us together as more than a club, we were truly a family and everyone wanted the same thing. We wanted to have a horse show because we LOVE THIS SPORT!
Our show was going well, bett
