Wow, We Did It!
Our last two shows at Green Hills went off without a hitch. The
weather was excellent; the venue was wonderful; the food was great
and greatly appreciated - Thank you Susan Ricketts!
Typically, we put on five shows a year, but because of the
overwhelming demand we were able to put on eight this year.
only weather concerns were at our first show when the rain poured
down, which only added to the ambiance of Jordan Bank's musical
freestyle, and at our August show at Silver Spurs when our judge,
Shannon Lockwood, courageously stabilized the tent with one hand
while handling the paperwork with the other.
I can't say enough about all our volunteers. Your efforts are what
make the club run as smoothly as it does. And on that note, I would
like to say what an amazing education it has been to be the
president of LPSDC for the past three years. The things I have
learned about running a show - the set up, the tear down, and all
the rules that go along with putting on a horse show. All of these
things have given me a much deeper appreciation and understanding of
what it takes to put on a show. If you ever get the opportunity to
participate in running a club such as ours, I highly recommend it;
not only for the educational aspect, but the camaraderie as well.
And now we have the awards banquet to look forward to. Last year was
a blast and this year it looks to be even better! The “Night Mates”
will be playing, Susan Ricketts will be catering, and we are trying
out a new venue on the Key Peninsula.
In conclusion, I would like to thank all those who rode in our
shows, all of your supporters, and all of the owners whose
facilities we had the privilege to use; but most importantly, a huge
thank to all of the horses who carried us through this season.
Without you, this would not be possible.
See you at the awards banquet and looking forward to next year.
