Have you noticed we have a calendar? Team members this is for you, use it! On the calendar we will have the set appointments for things like the farrier coming and other opportunities to get your barn hours in. The show dates are on here for the 2015-2016 school year so you can ask off work far in advance. Our meetings will be posted here and all the dates that money is due is on here as well. This makes it easier to plan in advance paycheck wise. As soon as we know how much will be due I will add that in on the date. Thanks!
If you would like more information about being on our team please come to the WKU Expo at 6pm on Aug. 27! We would love to meet you!
Where has the summer gone?? In less than a month we will be starting school which also means we will soon be practicing again! Remember if you are interested in the team PLEASE contact us, we would love to talk to you! Have a great rest of the summer before you know it we will be at our first show :)
On May 1, 2015 the team held the annual end of the year banquet. Like always we ate a delicious dinner and had lots of fun. We are very sad to graduate our seniors Shelby Sullivan, Stephanie Jackson, and Cassy Colburn, they have all been great leaders to this team. Many awards were given at the banquet which are listed below. Congratulations to everyone on the team. I am very proud of all the progress we have made there is not one person who did not dramatic improve this year. I cannot wait until fall 2015 show season. Have a great summer!
