It's All About Family and Friends

Tis the season of Love…the stallions are in their breeding season, florists are in the midst of their busiest holiday, kids are making special treats and messages for their classmates and Cupid is sharpening his arrows. But most importantly families and friends are finally starting to get some much needed time together. Love is in the air!

Family means everything to me. Growing up in a big family meant that I always had family members around me and many cousins to play with. Whether it was working in the show barn with cattle or horses, going on vacation, baling hay, or going to shows…we always did it together. Family is the building blocks that help to make us who we are, sharing experiences and teaching life lessons. My boys, Logan & Connor, are so fortunate to have grandparents in their lives along with many extended family members to enjoy time together, learn from and make memories with. We encourage you to make memories with your family and spread the love not only this Valentine’s Day but every opportunity you’re given.

February also means that we are inching closer to spring and the beginning of our 2021 show season! This month there will be two AQHA shows at Gordyville USA on Feb 6-7 and Feb 18-21.  Mark your calendars! Both shows are dual ILQHA approved. Bust out of the cold and come show with us in the indoor, heated facility. Our ILQHYA officers will be hosting a pizza party at the Feb 18-21 show. We hope to see you there!

We are very excited about our new and improved website with a new look and feel. You can now complete your membership and sponsorship directly through the website and pay via Paypal. Check back often for new Member Spotlights, News, Pro Tips, Youth updates, ILQHA Point standings, Show Results and much more! If there is something more you would like to see, please let us know. We are interested in your ideas.

Stay well and we hope to see you at Gordyville!
