Hi Everyone, It’s the end of June, summer is here, and Region 15 Championship Show is next week. If you haven’t sponsored a class yet, it is not too late. Just contact Kim Dickinson, or see her at the Show.
It is now time to brag a little bit on some of our own. Back in March, our Youth Coordinator, Hannah Darby, along with the Bayview team, organized 6, or more, fundraisers to help get some ODAHA kids to Youth Nationals, who otherwise might not be able to afford it. Well, all the kids stepped up to the plate, and hit home runs! These kids worked so hard that seven of them are headed to Oklahoma City. We salute their efforts to reach that goal and wish all seven (that’s right 7) of them the best of luck at Youth Nationals.
ODAHA’s “MAGNIFICENT SEVEN” are Gabby Courtney, Isabella Bono-Evans, Haley Flory, Elizabeth Graves, Nathaniel Hume, Scott Hume, and Kylie Vergara. Hannah Darby will be with them, as well as parents, some Bayview team coaching people, and friends.
I wish to congratulate these ODAHA youth, and their mentors for proving this could happen. We thank the parents for allowing these kids to experience the joy of the Arabian horse.
Bill Jenkins, President
Old Dominion Arabian Horse Assoc.
