Winter is upon us. With Daylight Savings ending earlier this month, I am sure that I am not alone in
noticing how my horse chores are getting darker and darker. Our horses are starting to get their
rest and really starting to fur up. We even had our first real freeze this week. While I am looking
forward to the holidays and it’s generally my favorite time of the year, it isn’t my favorite time for
taking care of the horses.
This is also the season for reflection and thanks. As I reflect, I am really proud of many of the
things I saw this year. I saw many facets of our organization come together. We talk about how
we’re a family. While every family has its frustrated moments, I saw and heard less bickering and
divisiveness. I watched our group pick each other up, help each other and grow. I saw older
members take more interest in our younger members and really work at teaching them. I watched
some of our younger members compete hard but truly love cheering each other to victory. It was
As I look back at convention. It was a really great convention. Thank you to Rose-Ann for her
work and time putting it together. I was also really proud of where we’ve come as an organization in
our discussion and vision. We hit on some really important topics this year that we have to continue
to work towards. How do we effectively drive membership and ride count up? How do we reward
our riders better but keep the family aspect of our organization at the forefront? In business, I was
how do we become easier to do business with. For us, we started to ask: How do we get easier to
join? How do we get more fun to participate/compete in? We will continue to sort that out. But it
will take all of us to unite and do it in our own way.
In a season of thanks, I have so much to be thankful for. Thank you to:
Rose Ridlon for many, many years as our Secretary. Your dedication to this organization whether
you’re riding or not is so greatly appreciated.
Klayton Tjoelker for the last two years as our Vice President. Thank you for being a person of
ideas and thoughtful communication. Thank you for helping me through my failures and being a
person that I counted on to help keep things going the right direction.
Amy DeBoer and Lauren Garlock: Thank you ladies for stepping to the plate to help us keep
moving forward. Thank you for stepping forward and becoming part of the younger leadership of
There are so many more that do more than I to make this organization great. Lesa Bland, Kirk
Weinz, Kelsey and Nate Morgan and Kristi Merrill seem to never tire in their efforts behind the
scenes to make PSHA what it is. Thank you for everything.
Rules Committee will be working hard to get Rule Books updated and ready for the coming year.
Typically, this happens in December or January. The question always comes: When will I have new
rule books. We will try to have them done by March 1. Reach out to me or the rules committee to
schedule a region clinic for March or April so they can get you rule books.
Interstate Princess: Kendra Hollibaugh has stepped forward to represent the state of Washington
this year. Thank you Kendra! Please look for her. Encourage her to visit your shows. Welcome her
and support her.
Convention 2019: We are looking for someone or a region to step forward and coordinate
Convention. If you’re interested, please reach out to me or Melonie so we can help you get going.
A huge thanks to all of you for your love and passion for this organization. We are nothing without
our members/family. Keep riding the good ride and taking care of each other.
I look forward to seeing you soon!
Secretary’s Message: Thank you for the support and kinship that this organization and all the
people in it have always given. I was humbled (really, I’m serious) by your ovation at the meeting
and it served to remind me once again that there are many groups you can ride with, but PSHA’s
family atmosphere is unique and wonderful. I am blessed to have you all in my life. Thank you.
Also, I will have the full meeting minutes for your review just as soon as I can. Thank you for your
