BC Interior Morgan Horse Club


few of our members attended the Canadian Morgan Horse Association AGM in Kamloops at the end of March. It was nice to meet the directors who travelled from across Canada including New Brunswick! The BCIMHC held their AGM on February 28th and by acclamation the board continues on: Gunther Funk – President, Nancy Roman – Vice President, Debbie Miyashita – Secretary, Laurie Lyons – Treasurer. At our April meeting we discussed possible events to host this year, such as, a summer Open House/BBQ, a CDART clinic, a photo or video contest, and a membership drive (as we know there are many Morgans out there, they just don’t belong to our club). This has been a constant concern of our board as to why Morgan owners aren’t joining us in helping to promote our versatile breed. We are all excited about the upcoming Pot O Gold Open Horse Show on Saturday, May 23rd at the Armstrong Fairgrounds. This show

offers Halter classes, Showmanship, Driving, Trail, English and Western Performance classes. Our main judge is Jodie Moore from the coast, and Doug Henry will judge the Trail classes. We’ll also have a ROADSTER demo over the lunch hour. Any (size) horse is welcome to be in the demo (providing they are already entered in the show). See the prize list on our Facebook page or We’re still needing some volunteers, so please contact me (Nancy 250-546-9922) if you are interested to help out. Our next meeting is Friday, June 5th at Yan’s Chinese Restaurant in Salmon Arm starting at 6 p.m.

ur Events Committee members are full steam ahead with plans for the TCSC Round Robin Jackpot Cattle Sorting to be held at Eagle Creek Fairgrounds on May 30th. The posters didn’t even get put up and the event was already full with a waiting list! Once the snow is off the grounds, the work bees begin – May 11 and May 26, any time after 4 p.m. We’ll be prepping the rodeo ring for the Cattle Sorting, and working in the TCSC arenas as well. Our “Parking for Ponies and Pals” project gets underway in May or June – we are pretty excited to see that moving forward! The High Point trophies have already been ordered for the TCSC Annual Gymkhana on July 25. Where else can you win trophies for entry fees of $5 or less per class?!?! Stay tuned for a class list and more info about our annual speed event.

Even better news is the chance to practice up on your showing skills immediately before the show – Level 2 Coach Christine Hassell will be helping riders prep their horses for two full days of instruction right before the Fair. This TCSC Pre-Show Clinic will be open first to TCSC members at a reduced rate – be sure to get your name on the list early!
