We would like to thank Rae Ann Brunton, who has served as co-ordinator for the juniors for the last few years. Rae Ann has stepped down and in her place two of the directors will assist with the juniors. Jane Graham and Chrissy Watkins.

Currently for 2010, our membership is sitting at approximately 15 juniors, this is significantly down from other years. In 2009, we fundraised with the seniors, in the selling of almonds and brooms. This proved to be a great way for both parts of the organization to benefit. This will be the plan for 2010, the fundraiser is still to be finalized.  As our membership is spread across the East and West, it is important to try and pick a central spot to hold activities. The decision has been made to hold a showmanship clinic at the CNE horse show on the Tuesday evening after the show. It won’t be long, maybe an hour in length, and two of our directors have agreed to hold the clinic, and are past junior exhibitors themselves. Paul Richardson and Ken Alderman will conduct the clinic, and at the end we thought it may be fun, if had a mini competition after the clinic was complete.  Jane, Chrissy and myself are hopeful that all juniors who are present will participate. I would ask that you confirm back to myself by no later than July 24th, confirming your participation in the clinic. We will also be looking for ponies that are suitable for the clinic.

As has been mentioned in the past, we are open to any suggestions that juniors or parents of the juniors may have in activities they would like to have for the future.

Feel free to contact myself at anytime
