2018 Update from the Board

Happy New Year ORHA members.

With the New Year come new opportunities and renewed hopes of faster spins and longer slides!

As some of you are aware, in November Harvey Stevens, resigned his position as ORHA President and Chairperson of the OBBO Committee. Harvey and his family have relocated their training facility to his country of origin, the USA. The Stevens family was part of our ORHA family for the better part of the past 12 years. We thank them for all their effort and contributions that helped make ORHA better. The ORHA wishes Harvey and his family continued success in their new home.

As per our By-laws the Vice President John Purdie, took over the vacant President’s position for our December Board meeting. At that meeting the ORHA board, through a unanimous vote, appointed Gary Yaghdjian to complete the remainder of the 2- year term as President.

Leona McAtee, a long time OBBO Futurity board member has assumed the role as Chairperson for the OBBO committee.

Your ORHA Board of Directors has been hard at work planning for an exciting horse show season. For 2018 we will continue to provide a complete calendar of shows at your favorite host facilities:      Fletcher’s Horse World, Pickering Horse Centre and Y-Not Farms.

All members, non-members and friends are encouraged to attend the AGM and Awards Banquet on Saturday January 27. This year the AGM and Banquet are scheduled on the same day to make attendance more inviting and less costly.

Please join us at the AGM to find out all the new and exciting plans for 2018 and the banquet to celebrate our 2017 Champions. AGM highlights will include changes to the OBBO Futurity, new incentives for Youth members, a new Professional Trainers Committee, a revamping of our web site, a complete calendar of events for 2018, and much more.

In 2017 we held Town Hall meetings as well as conducted a poll to get a better understanding of our members needs. We have listened to you and are ready to enact some positive initiatives to better serve all members.

Please join us at the AGM and add your voice to our effort in making 2018 the best year ever for your Ontario Reining Horse Association!
