NCHA AFFILIATE OF THE YEAR
April 16, 2021
The April show is in the books and it was a show to remember! SO much going on! SPECIAL thanks to our Lopers Lottery sponsor for April – DEBBIE WINARD. The lottery is a great way to recognize our hard working people!
The Reytheon Memorial Costume Bridleless Challenge resulted in an outstanding amount of donations for our charity….Soldier’s Best Friend…….and I would like to thank Chris King for her sponsorship of this fun event. As most of you know, Chris’ horse REYTHEON loved the Bridleless class AND he holds the record for most youth points! Truly a talented and wonderful athlete. There are just some costumes that we may never get out of our memories! CONGRATULATIONS TO COOKIE BANUELOS – OUR OPEN RIDER, DAWN CHAPMAN, OUR NON PRO RIDER, CHERYL CALLIS OUR AMATEUR RIDER AND KAYLEY JORRIS FOR BEST COSTUME!
Chris King and Teresa Home, our hostesses with the mostess, sponsored the hors’deuvres and the beverages were sponsored by Mike Wood Performance Horses…….. The Board chose Soldiers Best Friend as its recipient charity, which is dedicated to pairing therapy dogs with veterans. A truly worthy charity for our Bridleless event! A total of $21,225 was collected for our Soldiers Best Friend and the Youth Scholarship fund. AND who can forget that amazing auction? Thank you to our contributors AND our bidders!
The NOVICE CHALLENGE was ONCE again a great success! The $500 Novice Challenge, the $1,000 Novice Challenge and the $2,000 Novice Challenge AND the Shootout were held on Sunday. Hoof Beat teamed up with Mike Wood Performance Horses to sponsor this long-time AzCHA event. AzCHA is proud to have started this great event over 20 years ago. Congratulations to our Novice Challenge Shootout Champion Nichole Rasmussen and Reserve Champion Quincy Reeves.
