Well, that is a wrap! We had a fantastic show year and are grateful for all of you who came out to support these great local shows. A big thanks also goes out to the show managers, who put on the shows, and the UHJA board members.
The riding legend John Whitaker recently provided the following counsel in the British Showjumping Magazine, "My advice to those with aspirations; watch the ones that are winning, in the warm-up, in the morning, and copy them - it's what I always did. Every horse is different, and you have to figure them out. It's a tough sport, you lose more than you win."
This is a great reminder to get our heads out of our phones and learn from those fantastic riders around us and at the big shows.
It is wild to think that we are halfway through August and fall is knocking on our door. I hope you had a great summer. It was a little hot out but we had some great shows. Seeing so many people participating and supporting our local shows has been fun. We don't exist without you and your support. We are also looking for Board members for next year. Please reach out if you have any interest in serving on the Board.
It is still possible to become a member and join in the last four shows of the year!
