A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT.....
It seems like an age since we’ve all been together at a show – competing for purses and awards, enjoying our horses as well as one another’s company. The AzCHA cutting family has shown itself time and again to be caring and supportive of one another and others in our community.
We had to cancel two great events – in April we had planned the Novice Challenge and the Costume Bridleless and a great exhibitor party – a saddle was to be given to the winner of the Novice Challenge Shootout. And the Bridleless awards were waiting to be claimed and the Board had identified recipients of the results of the Calcutta fund raising. Remember that AzCHA has been privileged to give checks of $5,000 to two worthy animal welfare or veterans groups………but all that was then………
BUT – we will still be planning these great events – the saddle for the Novice Challenge still waits to be awarded, the Bridleless gifts are still available and all we have to do is call and schedule our party! And schedule it we will. NCHA has announced that it is now accepting applications for show approval and AzCHA is anticipating the HPEC grounds will be opened in time for our October show.
Other shows will soon be scheduled for this summer INCLUDING THE NMCHA SHOWS IN JULY (APPROVED FOR AZCHA YEAR-END AWARDS)……and we all look forward to being reunited and renewing old friendships and making new acquaintances. I know this period of time of isolation has been trying but there are better days ahead.
GOOD NEWS THOUGH! AZCHA has been nominated for Affiliate of the Year for 2019. I consider this a real feather in our cap given the challenges we had and continue to have – cattle costs go up, not down and there’s been a few rainy days in our past. But we appreciate the recognition of the efforts of the Board of Arizona Cutting Horse Association to put on the best shows in the country at a premier facility. I consider this nomination a confirmation of that …..I hope this letter finds you all well and ready to go down the road! SEE YOU SOON!!!!!!!
Mike Wood, President
