A Note From Our President


Hi All,
Our second meeting for the 2016/2017 will be on Tuesday October 18 at the Horny Toad in Cave Creek. We’re hoping to get back over to the Silver Spur Restaurant in Frontier Town, but have been unable to get a hold of anybody there for info when they will re-open.
We had a very poor turnout for our ride planning meeting in August and our first scheduled general meeting in September. We did come up with a long list of ride locations as listed below, but we are still short on ride leaders, so we don’t have a schedule. Remember if we don’t have ride leaders, we won’t have rides. Last year our trail coordinator Chris Huddleston led 80% of the rides, which she shouldn’t have had to do. So let’s step up people. We’ve resolved our website site issues, so info should flow much smoother.
Also, we still need a newsletter editor.
See you at the meeting,
Greg LaCosse President

A Few Photos From Recent Rides













Az Horse Council Newsletter

The Arizona Horse Council (AzHC) had its first arena trail challenge at Pinal County Fair grounds, South of Tucson. It was a Halloween event.  This was the first time that the Horse Council held an ACTHA - American Competitive Trail Horse Association - sponsored ride.  Fourteen riders competed in Open, Competitive Pleasure and Rookie Pleasure Divisions. Horse and rider teams competed over a variety of obstacles to test their skills in an arena setting. The obstacles and some of the horses and riders were decked out in Halloween themes.  For our first ACTHA Event, AzHC felt this was a very successful event. We plan to have another event; same time and same place, sometime next year.

AzHC is working on its next Legislative ride, and working to get Governor Ducey involved. The governor is receptive to the idea, and we are working on setting the dates to match up with his schedule, and the ranch where we are holding the next ride.

Chip Wilson, President of AzHC, attended the Coalition of State Horse Councils that took place in Minnesota, the end of October to the 1st of November. This coalition is a sub committee of the American Horse Council. It was enlightening, and Chip came back with ideas for AzHC to address. The Coalition also addressed the progress of the National Equine Disease Call Center. It is in operation, now, and once every state's vets get trained, it will soon be in operation. They are still looking for additional funding to keep it going. This center will not only report on a disease outbreak, but will give the proper and recommended prevention information. This will also get the outbreak info out, as soon as the test results come in. This will help identify the exposed animals, quickly, and will help to eliminate the bad and faulty information that get passed when an outbreak occurs.
Happy Trails,
Jean
