AHASFV President's Message — July, 2014

Summer is upon us and many of the members of the San Fernando Valley Club are enjoying riding our horses on the trail and in the show ring. I personally enjoyed the Region 1 show in Del Mar last month and I am looking forward to the Region 2 show this weekend in Santa Barbara. It is encouraging that our club's May Pacific Slope show, as well as both Regional shows, have had larger numbers of horses showing in them than last year.

At all three shows the youth members of our club enjoyed ice cream, pizza parties, volley ball games and time at the beach getting to know each other outside the show arena. Approximately 15 of the AHASFV kids participated in a judging clinic and competition at Region 1. They competed with 4-H, FFA and Region 1 kids. It looks like several of our club's youth are going on to Youth Nationals representing Region 2 in Hippology and attending convention.

Speaking of youth, many of you know that Nedra Johnson, AHASFV Board member, has become the AHA Director of Youth and Family Services. I want to congratulate Nedra on her new position. However, her move to Denver has left an open spot on our club Board and an open Delegate position. As elections approach we are in need as a club of Board members and current members are needed to fill leadership positions. We can not provide the 3-4 quality fun shows, the May class A show and Pacific Slope Championship show, or the trail rides and clinics without a committed group of Arabian horse enthusiasts. We have 148 adult members in our club. Not bad for such an urban area. I am asking that each of you come to a meeting and think about becoming more active in the leadership of your club.

Our next meeting will be the second Tuesday of July at Cisco's in Westlake Village.

See you there,

Jane Haven
