Year End Awards: Those at the meeting were asked if they liked how the YEA was held and if the location worked out (Idaho Pizza). It was run smoothly, and the location was nice. Maria had brought a back drop and had a photo shoot to add some more fun! If anybody has any other ideas for a location at the end of 2019, it doesn’t hurt to keep a look out!

Emmett Parade: It was a cold day, but a small group from the club still made it out and had enough fun to win a second place!

Middleton Parade: Another cold day for a parade, but a small group from the club braved the weather and enough fun to win a first place in the horse group! Kicking butt again!


ISHSA: Paperwork for the club’s recognition is due by February 28th. It was voted and agreed upon to pay ISHSA $60.00 for that. Lois has agreed to be our representative for ISHSA for 2019.

Horse Expo: The expo is April 12-14th this year. The club has already paid for a booth and there will most likely be a demo spot for the mini breed again. If you are interested in volunteering to have your horse there or watch over the booth, contact Jamey Robbins for sign up. Helpers for setting up the booth and moving obstacles for the demo are always needed as well!

2019 Club Committees: There are numerous committees within the club and Heather wants to get more members involved into those committees. Some members at this meeting signed up for committees, but if anybody else wants to volunteer and be apart of a committee Heather will be making sign up sheets. All the different committees are listed on the club’s website and what it means to be a part of those committees.

Meeting place: Valerie brought up the fact that having the meetings at the GRMPD were costing the club money that had no profit in the making. Kelli said she would look into Mr. V’s restaurant.

Pam wants to know if the club will sponsor more awards for the WISK show that Jessie Hunting puts on. The dates this year are May 31- June 2nd. Jessie said she would bring a list of ideas to the next meeting.
