Ontario Paint Horse Club

Since 1971


Hi everyone!

It's already February and most of the groundhogs have predicted an early spring!! I sure hope the sunshine comes with that to start drying up some of the mud we get with our typical Ontario winters. I feel blessed to be able to spend time in the barn with my horses and forget about the grey skies we've been seeing for the last couple of months, even if it's only for an hour or two.

I'd like to thank everyone who attended our AGM and awards brunch. We had lots of input and suggestions from our membership that the board of directors will be taking into consideration and discussing at our next meeting.

The awards committee did a beautiful job on this year's banquet and awards. It's a job that takes up many hours of their own personal time and we really do appreciate that! I am always amazed at the hours our board of directors put into the OPHC as volunteers. We are all very fortunate to have their continued dedication.

Remember to get your APHA cards all up to date along with your OPHC membership. It's a great way to get a head start for the upcoming show season. I was able to get my APHA amateur membership done and it was emailed to me the next day. Store it in a note on your phone and you're ready to show!

Until next time,
