Kathy Gomes Freikert Memorial Cutting...August 20, 2016_Vintage Cutting Horse Assoiciation, August Event at Petaluma RIding and Driving Club

Come cut in the beautiful heart of Sonoma County’s wine country. Show your horse where the weather is mild, the cows are good, the ground is soft, and the company is superior. Join our clinics and mini series to practice, show, and win! We offer events year round, both on and off your trusty steeds. With an array of clinicians and judges, there is always something new to be learned and implemented in and out of the show pen. Don’t forget to sign up for our FRESH and rerun cattle classes held throughout each show! Hope to see you all soon!

President’s message for November 2019:

Dear Members & Sponsors,                                                                            

Our 2109 year has wrapped up and I thank you all for your participation this year.  We enjoyed a successful year and are already hard at work planning 2020.

We gathered at Legends for our Annual Membership Meeting & Awards Banquet last month and had a great night!  We enjoyed a wonderful dinner; I thank Cheryl Jensen for putting that together for us.  During the night we got business out of the way and held our annual membership meeting and moved on to awards.  Congratulations to our award winners! We also got to bid on some very nice silent auction items and with some friendly bidding wars, we made a good amount to put towards next year’s awards program.  Last but not least we elected our Board of Directors for 2020. I am very proud to introduce your 2020 Board. Returning are Steve Litzky, Carla Hagge, Heidi Thompson, Cheryl Jensen, Sarah Miller & Kim Jones.  Our newest members are Stacey Halvorsen, Alan Oglesby & Jessi Jensen. I am confident that VCHA is in good shape in their capable hands. Retiring from the Board are Kit Simmie and Lynda Bell Jacobsen. On behalf of the entire membership, I cannot express enough our appreciation to you both for your dedication and time given to VCHA.

New & existing Board members have met to begin planning next year’s events.  Many ideas have been tossed around and although exact details have yet to be decided, look for some shows, some clinics, some practices and maybe some other fun events for 2020.  We are also looking into the possibility of having some type of event after our shows to help defray the ever increasing costs of producing a quality cutting event. We’d love the membership’s input on this, so if you have any ideas as to events, location, clinician or anything else, please feel free to reach out to myself or any board member.

We are still accepting applications for the Kathy Feickert Memorial Scholarship.  If you know of a youth whose life has been affected by cancer, and has a love for horses, this could be a great way to help them.  Please see the flyer/application in the newsletter and website for more information. We will be accepting applications and awarding monies for this until funds are depleted.

As we move into the holiday season, I’d like to take a moment to express my thankfulness for having a great team to work with this year and a great club to lead.  I hope that you all can take a moment to be thankful for all the things we have to be thankful for — family, friends, horses even a quiet moment to appreciate these things.

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving.
