MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT:
HAPPY NEW YEAR NHS……………..It’s a new year, with a new NHS Board of Directors and perhaps a new direction with an increased emphasis on following our Club motto of “Something for Everyone!”
As your President, it has already become clear to me that the ladies who constitute the rest of the Board and Director positions are determined to make fun the guiding light of what NHS is all about. Your Board consists of folks who have “been there, done that” and have stepped forward to put that knowledge and their time toward making NHS fun and educational for everyone. We have trainers, successful Crystal Crown JPR riders, successful English and Western riders, extreme event riders, barn managers and more. But, what’s more is the abundance of new ideas and the already demonstrated ability of this board to “make it happen”…..turning ideas into action. I’m impressed with their creativity and “we can do that” attitude. You, the members need to step forward too and tell us what you would like to do….give us your ideas. But do keep in mind and be prepared to contribute some of your volunteer time towards helping us do these fun events.
A Club such as ours is only as strong and successful as the membership allows it to be. Take a look at the new and improved NHS website. Also, know that we are planning multiple obstacle clinics, beginner jumping clinics, gaited clinics, parades, new venue monthly trail rides, English and Western shows (if we can secure Show Managers), quadrilles, 1-2 JPR’s and more! To get these things done, I ask for your support by attending our Monthly Member Meetings so you can put forth your ideas and comment on the ideas of others……it’s your Club and, with your help we will seek to turn your ideas into reality.
In closing, I can’t help but remember when as a former President of the Battlefield Equestrian Society and then Equestrian Liaison to the Manassas Nat’l Battlefield Park, I had several occasions to speak to the NHS membership. NHS was always a fun group….sociable, lighthearted and a group that I had a special interest in supporting. It is my sincere hope that I can be of service to you, the general membership, and with the help of this talented Board, move NHS forward towards being everything it can be.
Let’s get it done!
President, Nokesville Horse Society
In partnership with Joe London Training LLC, we are
advertising his next Play Date at his training facility in
Blandy Station on February 7th & 8th from 10 am-12 pm.
This play date will not be an obstacle training day but
instead he will host a Drill Team aka Quadrille Clinic. This
is a great opportunity to work on team building between
horses and riders and between riders and riders. Lunch
education topic is Equine Nutrition, after which we will put
the formation work from the morning into a musical ride.
Cost is $25 pp. Please visit Joe London Training LLC on
