Earlier this week we provided the AQHA and our National Ranch & Stock Horse Alliance partner with the 2022 KRHA eligible exhibitors for the 2023 World Show, June 20-24 in Guthrie Oklahoma. To be eligible members had to show in a minimum of three of our shows in 2022. The actual list of names will be posted on our KRHA website. AQHA will be emailing entry information to the email addresses we have provided. We will also share information about the show on the KRHA website as it becomes available. The link below outlines the schedule of activities for this year's event.

I want to provide a quick follow up to the information we covered at the Awards Banquet on 3/11. I initially stated we would have Eforms for membership, nomination and Non Pro/ Novice Eligibility Verification and additional information out last week but we ran into an issue with our tech resource having a bout with COVID. The good news is he is doing better, and you should start seeing links show up on our website by the end of this week. We will cross reference here on Facebook as well. I am including today a copy of the slide presentation we reviewed at the banquet that will provide background for those that could not attend and a refresher for those that were there in person.
Hope warmer days are in our future so we can keep tuning on our horses for the April show. It will be here in no time.
I hope everyone is as excited as I am to reconnect and recognize our 2022 Division winners and share the plans for the 2023 show season! This all is happening at the KRHA Awards banquet on March 11, at the Old Capital Saddle Club (751 Old Highway 135 SW Corydon, IN 47112). Wade Sonners will be serving up one of his fabulous meals and we will also have a couple more fun surprises to round out the evening: Details are below about signing up for the meal:

Your 2023 KRHA board has had to overcome some challenges, but we have finalized the anxiously awaited 2023 Events Schedule. We will also establish individual Facebook event pages to make it easy to refer to specific shows as the year moves on. Start marking your calendars.
You will notice we will not be hosting a cattle clinic. We encountered some planning challenges to fit one in this year and the board considered there are more local cattle working clinics and lesson options than in the past. We will reevaluate in the future. Second, you will notice we have reduced the number of regular shows from six to five. These will all be single judged/point shows. Both of these changes were made after much thought and discussion, giving consideration to member survey results, scheduling challenges, operating expenses as well as the overall economic climate.
I look forward to sharing additional information for the upcoming show season at our March membership meeting. It's going to be a great year.
