We had a fantastic turnout for our July Circuit at Thunderbird Show Park in spite of the well needed rain that graced us for two of the four days. It sure didn’t dampen the competition, some classes still boasting 15 entrants. This show saw many socials and fun times! Thank you to Ashleigh Tuhkala for again organizing the Potluck Social on move-in day, the food was yummy and always welcome in the bustle of getting ready for the upcoming show days. On Friday night, Splendora’s gang held a birthday party for the lovely Kim Servoss in the barns, where people had a wonderful time. Saturday evening LM hosted an ice cream social complete with all the fixings for a sundae that was very popular with everyone young and old. After hyping them up on sugar, Sian and Haley Russell ran the Funturities which had kids and adults alike in stitches and giggles with the bubble-wrap popping, scavenger hunt, egg and spoon and so much more. Every youth that attended was added into a draw for prizes and no one went away empty handed. Our super awesome show staff once again did a superb job, making it a true joy to attend. Thanks so much show team! High Point award winners received saddles (thanks to many amazing sponsors) and Reserves received Bailey hats, sponsored in part by Brim Styles. The award for Super Horse was Frank Principe Custom Spurs, sponsored by Frank Principe. All-Breed High Points received i-Pods with i-Tunes gift cards and Reserves received an LMQHA gift pack. Congratulations to all our winners!

Looking for someone (or a couple of someones) who would be willing to run the trade fair part of our amazing Bazaar. We have an established team and it is a satisfying experience seeing it all come together. We need the Bazaar as it is our major fundraiser and one of the main reasons we can host shows and give year-end awards, with the trade fair being one of our most important aspects. Please let us know if you would be willing to help out. Also looking toward 2016, we will need volunteers to fill many spots, some small jobs and some larger ones. Many hands make light work.
Check our Facebook page and the LMQHA page of BCQHA.com for updates and other events. In the next Saddle Up, there will be information on how our August Circuit went as well as our third Pub Night.
