Horse Judging Clinic/Contest
June 1, 2019
With help from Roxzene Bockstruck and Angela Turnbaugh who supplied horses and Denise Cummings who worked as our official judge, Barbara and I hosted a judging clinic and contest. This was held for all interested youth and adults in the area and was attended by 4-H members who were preparing for the state contest as well as youth interested in joining the EEAHC youth Arabian Horse Judging team. We discussed conformation judging, performance judging, and giving oral reasons. Then we had a mini contest consisting of half Arabian mares, half Arabian Geldings, Showmanship, Western Pleasure, and Western Horsemanship. We had an enthusiastic, bright group of judges who participated.
Bonner County Fair Booth
August 21 - 24, 2019
We had a great time at the Bonner County Fair promoting the Arabian horse and getting to visit with old friends and meeting new friends at our booth. Lots of young boys and girls came by and picked up "Arabian Horse Color" charts and the "Ideal Arabian Horse" flyers. We got to see horse enthusiasts throughout the week, and we handed out coloring sheets, horse word searches, and horsey "Mad Libs." Can't beat a whole week of talking about the Arabian Horse.
Lakeside Assisted Living Visit
October 9, 2019
We enjoyed an afternoon with a group of residents from Lakeside Assisted Living. They had a wonderful time petting noses, watching horses perform in the arena, and some reminiscing about horses and other animals they had in past years. Of course, the horses enjoyed the attention and were happy to entertain their visitors.
Trail Basics Clinic Benefitting the EEAHC Judging Team
October 12 & 13 2019
What a wonderful weekend with great horses and riders. Thank you so much to all of the riders and auditors who participated in the EEAHC Trail Basics Clinics held at Tibbs Arabians in Sandpoint, ID and The Busy Bee Ranch in Spokane, WA. The clinic proceeds benefit the EEAHC 2020 youth Judging team. Although the air was a bit crisp in both locations, we all stayed dry. Two dozen riders and horses all progressed by leaps and bounds. By the end of each day participants completed an entire trail class with all of the elements learned throughout the clinic. Special thanks to Fawna Sunshine Huffman and her daughters, Jennifer Kuster and her daughter, Laurie Tibbs, the owners of the Busy Bee Ranch, all of the riders and auditors who helped make the weekend a Huge success!
