Well that's a wrap for the QHAA 2017 show season!!
On behalf of the QHAA Board of Directors, we would like to thank all of you- trainers, exhibitors, parents, judges, our show manager Leslie McCleave, show secretaries (Shawna Hustead and Dauane Elkins), ring stewards, volunteers and all the staff at the Westerner and Claresholm agriplex for your support and collectively making our shows bigger and better!! 

Our SPONSORS!!! These shows wouldn't even be possible without your continued support and dedication to our shows, with your help we are able to promote our youth, our horses and our industry - we can't possibly thank you enough!! 

I am surrounded by an amazing dedicated board that works so very hard to make these shows happen, I can't thank them enough for the passion and commitment to this association;
Margie Axten, Wayne Burwash, Derek Dachyshyn, Terri Gosnell, Lyle Jackson, Joelle Johnson, Sandy Kirtzinger, Susan Lehmann, Christine Schellenberg, Darlene Schwab, Diane Simons, Lindsay Soderberg, Wayne Soderberg and Susan Walsh.  
All of your hard work and efforts do not go unnoticed or unappreciated! We are not perfect, we make mistakes, but I know we are trying our best for this association! 

In this crazy economy we are so very proud of our accomplishments this year, our show numbers remained pretty consistent , the Nationals was one of our biggest in recent years and our youth classes were very strong and encouraging.  

I want to share with you all a part of my speech from the futurity banquet.
A common question I have been asked all year- 
How do we as an association continue to grow?? 
Please ask yourself what are you doing to help with the growth of our shows and the future of our association??
If you win - be humble
If you lose- be gracious
Respect each other 
Be calm
Be kind
Be fair
Be accountable 
Be supportive 
Be trustworthy 
Be honest but not hurtful 
Lend a hand
Share your knowledge
Smile
Laugh 
Congratulate each other 
Look out for each other
Give these youth someone to look up to, and to be proud of, be a mentor and set good examples, make them want to show horses and to be involved and this association will grow and succeed but it takes each and every one of us to make this association better, stronger, friendlier and fun!!  We the board simply organize the shows,  it takes all of us to make them enjoyable and memorable! 
 
On behalf of the board, thank you and we will hope see you at the AGM and the year end awards banquet January 13th, 2018 at the Sheraton in Red Deer.
