Well, we have just survived another Fort Worth Stock Show. I hope that everyone had a wonderful time and received the T-shirt, because it was a heck of a show. Texas Paint Horse Club wants to thank all the exhibitors, visitors and helpers for starting the show season off with a bang. With 1009 entries, this show will most certainly be one of the top shows of the year. Those entries featured some of the best horses, horsemen, and horsewomen in the country. There seemed to be a world class horse in every class with well prepared exhibitors. There were awards and prizes for everyone.
The weather cooperated and it was a beautiful weekend. The accommodations provided by Fort Worth were amazing. I even heard good things about the parking staff, which was a nice surprise. APHA and the Texas Paint Horse Club stocked the Hospitality Booth with food and drinks for breakfast and lunch for everyone involved. Donuts were a hit with the kids and there were no leftovers. The classes went smoothly and ran late into the evenings because of the number of classes. Ranch horse classes began on Friday along with a challenging trail. I would personally like to Thank Randy Head and Tim Wildes for their innovating ideas that helped to make this year’s show a success.
I would like to thank my board members and all our sponsors for the beautiful awards. I would like to thank Gina Viator for her diligent work in providing those great end of the year awards and making the banquet a joyous occasion. The banquet boosted 102 in attendance.
We now turn our attention to 2018. Please remember that while the Stock Show personnel dictate how the show is run, the Texas Paint Horse Club continues to put our own stamp and ideas into the show. If you have any thing you would like to see again, or perhaps want to add something different to the show, please contact one of the Texas Paint Horse Board Members. See you at the next show!
Texas Paint Horse Club and Gulf Coast Paint Horse Club will be offering Class Sponsorships for the Wildflower Show, March 17-19, 2017, Paint the Future, April 7-9, 2017 and Fall Colors/ World Warm Up Show, September 15-17, 2017. The sponsorship is $100 per class and that includes all three shows. Each sponsor will be mentioned during that class at each show, there will be a banner at the show with the list of sponsors and listing in an end of year ad thanking all the various sponsors for 2017. This is a great way to advertise your horse, farm or business. Please fill out the attached form and mail with your check to Eileen Daugirda at the address on the form. Thank you for your support of Gulf Coast and Texas Paint Horse Clubs.
The club was one of 5 clubs nationally that was selected for this award by an in-house panel of judges, for the outstanding level of service it provides its members and community, as well as its enthusiastic promotion of the Paint Horse and APHA. Congratulations to the TPHC!
