January 15, 2014 * Happy New Year!


For some of us it seems that spring with its breeding season and 2014 show season is far away but for some of you lucky folks, you can actually see grass in your fields!

NMRHA Sire & Dam Program


We have several stallions promised to our NMRHA Sire & Dam Program already! If you have a stallion you wish to donate, please let me know. The money raised from selling these breedings goes to fund the NMRHA Derby.


If you are planning on breeding a mare this year, please consider one of our stallions. If the stallion you would like is not on the list, let us know and we will contact the owners and see if they would be willing to donate (or ask them yourselfJ) These breedings can be purchased for half the advertised stud fee (minimum purchase price of $300)! We will have advertising ready shortly.


Annual Meeting


Several ideas were proposed at our annual meeting. We are looking into what might be feasible:


See if we can get a 6 year old snafflebit/hackamore class put into nationals. In order to do this we would have to consolidate somewhere as we don’t want to ask for more than three snafflebit/hackamore classes. Suggestion was: 3 & 4 year olds, 5 year olds, and 6 year olds.


Combining the 1st year green and 2nd year green into one class which would be “1st and 2nd year green”. Two hands snafflebit/hackamore or one hand any legal bit. We could then use the freed-up slot for a green horse class which would read similar to the green rider definition (no world/national championships, etc)


We really want to emphasize youth participation in the reining division. Several items were suggested. See if we can get the youth division split into 15 and under and 16-21. Currently the youth cannot show youth if over 18.


Discussion was held regarding the qualifying process for the AMHA Reining Seat Medal Class. We will hopefully have a write up for you regarding this in the near future.


Discussion was held regarding the North American Junior Rider Championship. Christina handed out some flyers. We would love to field a team of Morgans! If you are at all interested in being a part of this endeavor, please email Christina!


If you have any projects you would like to pursue in the name of the club, we would be glad to hear! Remember, most things are accomplished at the local level!




We rely almost exclusively on donations to fund our projects. Please consider making a donation today at Scroll down to donations and click!
