President's Message

As I begin my term as President, I would like to personally thank Bob Clancy for his service as President over the past two years. On behalf of the CRHA, thank you Bob for your leadership and commitment. I would also like to welcome Steve McLean to the CRHA executive as a director. We appreciate Steve's interest to become involved in the association, and look forward to his ideas and contributions. I would also like to welcome Howard Salisbury back to the executive and thank Lorne MacDonald and David Watkins for their assistance as directors.

Beautiful weather has finally arrived and I am sure everyone is excited about the show horse season ahead of us. Speaking of exciting, the 2016 Ontario Show Horse Classic will be held on July 23rd & 24th at the Caledon Pan Am Equestrian Park in Palgrave. I encourage Road Horse exhibitors to participate as it's a beautiful facility and a great place to show a road horse! The prize money has been increased for 9 classes. The seven regular classes will be $600 and the Bike and Buggy Stake $800 in prize money. The show ring is indoors so the show will go ahead rain or shine but let's hope for a beautiful weekend on July 23rd and 24th! On a final note I would like to take this opportunity to offer congratulations to Jim McKague on his nomination to the 2016 Road Horse Hall of Fame.

As exhibitors prepare for the 2016 show season I wish all of you the best of luck!
