We have been notified by the folks at Jeffco Fairgrounds that the Green Mountain Conference Rm. is unavailable for our meeting for this Wednesday, February 7th. Additionally, their Exhibit Hall areas are being re-roofed, so they cannot move us into those. We have been unable to procure alternative meeting space, so the February General Membership meeting is canceled:-(
We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.
Our meeting on Wednesday, March 7th will be held as usual. Our tentative speaker topic will cover Brand Inspections – what you need to know.
Please join us for a viewing of one of the top horse movies of all time:
Called “a flat-out great movie,” by Larry King.
Seabiscuit is a 2003 equestrian sports film directed by Gary Ross and based on the best-selling non-fiction book Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand. The film is loosely based on the life and racing career of Seabiscuit, an undersized and overlooked Thoroughbred race horse, whose unexpected successes made him a hugely popular media sensation in the United States during the Great Depression. Seabiscuit was nominated for seven Academy Awards. This movie stars Toby Maguire, Jeff Bridges and Chris Cooper.
Plan on arriving at 6:30 PM and the movie will start at 6:45 PM. Plenty of Buttered popcorn and Kettle corn will be provided and also ice water. Please feel free to bring a drink of your choice and your own comfortable, camp chair, lounger, or even a bean bag or blanket, so you can kick back and relax (i.e. not squirm on one of the conference room’s folding chairs;-)

Kristy Taylor will present our speaker topic for November’s Membership meeting. Kristy has an extensive background in dressage and currently is showing at the national level with several of her miniature horses.
Topic: Collection. What is it exactly? How do I convince my horse to give it a try?
Join Kristy for a interactive classroom presentation on collection through harmony between a horse and rider. You will work on proper body alignment, balance, half halts, contact and more to invite your horse to willingly step into collection. This will be a fun interactive presentation – dress in loose clothing so we may prance and dance around the classroom experimenting with our soft and quiet aids. From beginners to more advanced riders there will be something for everyone!
Note this is classroom only – no horses.
Don’t forget meetings are open to anyone interested in the club, or those just wanting to hear a good speaker. If you have a friend or acquaintance that enjoys horses, invite them to attend.
