Presidents Message:

As I sit and write this, it’s February and the year is flying by. By the time you read this,
March will be knocking on the door. Show schedules are starting to get made and the
season really feels like it’s under way.
Many of you never stop riding. For my family, horses are starting to get ridden again. Time
to start stretching those legs and getting ready to go. I think we’d all be going a
little more if the things weren’t quite so wet.
As many of you start making plans, I hope you’re all making plans to venture out to
different parts of the state, trying to ride in as many different places as you can. It’s great
to see all the different faces and see how different shows are run.
For our organization, it feels like the show season really starts with the Melanie
Benefit Show up in the Lynden Tractor Arena March 11 and 12.
I was lucky enough to see some of it last year and my kids will get to ride this year. It
starts off with a big barrel race, followed by a charity auction and then a PSHA show on
Sunday. I am so proud of our members that put a lot of time and effort into putting on the
event. They do a great job putting together prizes, auction items, dinner and so much
more. To top it off, the money raised goes to a cause that is near and dear to the
organizations heart and has touched us all.
Please try to make time in your schedule to knock off some rust, get your horse in the
arena and have a great time with great people. We’ll see you there!
Classic: It’s never too early to sign up for running a classic and start making plans. Klay is
thinking about who he would like to work with in the event people don’t volunteer. Thank
you to those that step to the plate and continue to help the organization.
Convention: A big thank you to RoseAnn Rutgers for stepping up to host convention this
year. We will be hosting the event someplace in the northwestern part of the state. We are
diligently working on locations and dates and will get those out to you as soon as we have
them dialed in. If you’re interested in helping RoseAnn, please don’t hesitate to reach out to
her or myself. Thank you RoseAnn!
Interstate: I would like to let people that are interested know that I need to fill two
interstate committee spots. We have had a lot of success with our committee, but as with
most things there comes a time where people need to take a step back and take a break. It
would be great to get a couple sets of new fresh eyes. This is a great opportunity for some
of our younger leadership to step forward and learn more about how things run. We have a
lot of great people with great ideas. If you’re interested, please reach out to me let me
That’s all for now. Can’t wait to see you soon.

Rules Committee Message:
The rules committee would like to remind everyone that rides on teams, whether two man or
four man, in order for your times to count, all riders must be paid members of PSHA.  Any X
riders on a team will result in a no-time for the entire team.

State Finals News:
Kelsey and Kristi, our dynamic duo have already been hard at work getting sponsors for
State Finals. This is an enormous job on it’s own.  We have been fortunate that they have
worked so tirelessly for us.  This year, they would actually like to ride their horses!  As a
result, we are looking for helpers with many different jobs.  If you can help, please email
Kelsey at and let her know.  Thank you for stepping up and
helping out!

Interstate News:
Hey everyone! I hope you all have had a fantastic start to the New Year. There isn’t much to
report about Interstate other than we are still hoping to find an Interstate Princess from
Washington. If you know of anyone that might be interested I would love to give them more
information about this incredible opportunity. I can’t wait for show season to get going in
full swing but in the meantime rest up and enjoy the time off!
Love, Queen Emma
