We tried some new things this year and met a lot of fun new people. Part of what makes this business great is helping horses and the other part is helping people. We love doing both and are very blessed to have the opportunities to do so.
This year we enjoyed an incredible record, winning numerous titles in the arena:
• 15 Top 10’s and a Reserve World Champion title (Western Pleasure) at PtHA World Championships
• 2 National Champion High Points and 11 National Champion titles at the North American Gypsy Championships
• 14 Top 5’s, one Reserve Champion and three Champions at the AHA Region V Championship show.
Brittany Husser was promoted to Assistant Trainer and former Assistant Trainer Crystall Petry moved to Texas and opened her own training business “Petry Performance Horses”. Congratulations ladies!
We hosted our first Open House at Cedar Hill and it was a great success! We served over 100 plates of food and guests stayed late into the night, riding in the arena and visiting around the bonfire.
Mike and Crystal represented the Daffodil Arabian Club at AHA National Convention in Denver, Co.. Mike is now part of the Equitation/Showmanship Committee and the Working Western Committee for 2013.
Mike was selected by Region V to be the barn manager for the 2013 Regional Championship Show in Monroe, WA.
Crystal and Brittany both began the process of getting their Judges Cards. Watch for them both in the center of the arena in 2013!
We celebrate the wins of 2012 big and small, both in and out of the arena. At the end of the day we still love what we do, and we appreciate everyone who helped make the year great! We can’t wait to see what 2013 will bring!
Looking forward to a great new year, wishing everyone success in whatever direction you choose, and we will see you at the shows!
Sincerely – The Staff at Cedar Hill Training Center
