News and Upcoming Events
Our Awards Banquet is coming up in November -- just you wait, November will be here before you know it -- but until then, take the time to get out with your ponies/horses and enjoy the fall weather.
Thanks to all of the riders who joined us at our Open Show on August 23rd. We always appreciate other competition!
And thank you to Dr. Bruce Connally for doing the vet checks.
Please keep in mind that Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) is here in Colorado. For the latest news, go to the Colorado Department of Agriculture info on Facebook. As of August 26, there are 65 premises quarantined in 15 counties. A couple of new counties were added to the list from last week; but there are fewer overall locations under quarantine, because a number of locations were released from quarantine.
Thanks to all of the riders who participated in our Open Shows over the July 4th weekend. It's always fun to have some new competition.
And a HUGE Thank You to the Alexander family for hosting a 4th of July party at their home! What a nice way to take a break from the shows and relax. You guys rock!!
Thank you to everyone who competed at the West World and Rocky Mountain Regional POA Shows and to everyone who worked so hard to make the shows a success! We appreciate the support of all of the POA families who traveled from other states to attend the shows.
Photos from the shows are now available from Performance Horse Photography.
Congratulations to Sophia Mazerole who won a beautiful western saddle donated by Schneiders. She was the Overall High Point Rider for the West World and Rocky Mountain Regional, based on selected classes. See the photo on the RMR & West World page.
More Information About POAs
and the Colorado POA Club...
The Colorado POA Club is a nonprofit group with a focus on the youth rider, but family members of all ages can show POAs.
POAs -- Pony Of the Americas -- is a breed that was developed in the 1950s to provide a smaller horse with a great disposition that was a more suitable mount for young riders. POAs have Appaloosa-type coloring and range from 46" to 56" (up to 14 hands) in height.
We have POA shows and open shows each summer, and other events are held throughout the year, including equitation clinics, trail rides, and the annual awards banquet.
Feel free to browse our website to find out more about our club. And check out our Schedule page -- we'd love to see you at one of our events!
