Several members had attended the SBRAA Show at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington VA in April to kick off the show year. This fun group again showed in Delaware at the Delaware Appaloosa Horse Associations show in May. If you’d thought of showing at Appaloosa shows, now is a great time. With new Walk/Trot classes to get exhibitors back in the ring, or new to the ring, and a fun group, we’d love to help and support new members!
Our first Trail ride of the year was held in April and was at Phelp’s park. We have a ready group of avid trail riders and a great turnout for this ride. You do not have to have a registered Appaloosa, or even an Appaloosa to join us!
General Membership Meeting, Cookout and Trail ride will be on Sunday June 14th at Lake Anna State Park. Plan to ride out (saddled and ready) at 10:30 am. Cookout and Meeting to follow at Noon. You may join us for the ride or just the Food and Meeting. Details and updates will be on the facebook page.
We will again BE attending the Delaware Appaloosa Horse Association show on Aug 22-23.
We are working on holding an Open Show! It will be in Sept, so stay tuned!!
