Hi All!

It seems that Spring is here to stay! The grass is getting greener, flowers are blooming and I'm sure we're all getting the itch to start showing. I've been using some of these nice days to start preparing my trailer so I don't end up in a mad scramble the week before our first show. I spent some time this past weekend cleaning show tack and doing a general inventory of my equipment. It's been a little like Christmas coming across things I forgot I purchased at the Congress to use in the coming season!

Remember to get your memberships taken care of and upload copies of your cards and ownership papers to your phones so you can be ready to make your entries for our May show. The stall booking form is available to fill out online this year, helping to run things smoothly.

Finally, please have a look at our website and check out all of our sponsors! Support their businesses whenever you can. Because of them, we are able to provide fun shows with great prizes at an amazing facility.

Looking forward to seeing all of you soon!
