Note from the President:

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the annual Holiday Get-Together on Sunday, December 4th at 2pm. Misty Meadows is graciously letting us gather at their beautiful facility. Come join us for some fun & relaxation before the holidays get too busy!

Congratulations to Ava Stearns who continues to be a huge winner on her Intercollegiate Riding Team. They have been National Champions every year she has been on the team!

I am very excited about MVHC events in 2023. I won't go into all the details, but we will be hosting both Hunter & Dressage shows and intent to have Year End Awards!!! Additionally there will be western classes, gymkhana classes and clinics. Dates will be posted in January so please mark your calendars once they are up!

A reminder as winter comes upon us, that if you see a horse in need, please contact me for Equine Aid. It is completely confidential and there for a reason.

Happy Holidays to you, your families and of course, your horses!
Julie
