There will be a board and general membership meeting Sunday, March 15 at 2:00 PM at La Hacienda in Benton. Come eat yummy food and we’ll discuss the upcoming shows!
The 2015 Victory Challenge will once again be held at the Four States Fairgrounds in Texarkana, AR. Judges are Jack Thomas and Terri Delbridge. Check our show page often for updates and forms and we’ll …
Hope everyone is staying warm! The class list is up for the first show in the High Point series, March 21 at the Saline County Fairgrounds – so download that and the entry form from our “shows” tab and scroll down to the High Point series.
The V.C. classlist is done and will be posted shortly. Jack Thomas and Terri Delbridge will be our judges this year. Tony Shubert will be announcing and keeping us dancing, while Stacey Bates is back to snap great photos. Jane Andis rejoins us as paddock master and once again, my personal hero, Alan Harmon (and lovely wife, Denise) will keep the office running smoothly with a smile. Remember, it’s a concurrent show – so double points! Our host hotel is again the Hampton Inn – it was brand new last year and the rooms were lovely, clean and HUGE! They are happy to work with us again and kept the same great rate of only 69.00 per night if you mention you are coming to the AAHC Victory Challenge Horse show. They set a cutoff date of May 1 for the special rate, so go ahead and reserve.
Judy Green is heading up sponsorships this year (as well as being a great ringmaster) – remember, every 250.00 you raise for the V.C. gets you a free stall at the show!
Any questions? Give us a holler!
