News and Upcoming Events
We held our Awards Banquet on November 8. Congratulations to everyone who won awards, as well as to all of the participants at our shows in 2015. Thanks to all of you for a successful show season.
See you next year!
It's late November, and Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) is still hanging on in Colorado. But hopefully the end is near. (We said that two weeks ago, too.) For weekly updates, go to the Colorado Department of Agriculture info on Facebook. As of November 18, the number of VS cases had gone down, but there were still 45 premises quarantined in 11 counties. El Paso County had 1/3 of the total quarantines; all other counties had 6 or fewer locations quarantined. With the cold weather predicted for the Thanksgiving weekend, the State Veterinarian's office is hoping for a rapid decrease in the number of VS cases.
Photos from the 2015 West World and Rocky Mountain Regional are still available from Performance Horse Photography, but place your order soon. Photos will be available only through the end of this year.
And make plans to attend the 2016 West World and Rocky Mountain Regional POA Shows in Longmont, Colorado, June 30-July 3. We're happy to report that the shows are back to their traditional dates near July 4th. The Regional is hosted by the Utah Club, but it will be held in Colorado conjunction with the West World. Check back for details in spring 2016.
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!
