HCWE General Meeting and Year End Awards Banquet

High Country Working Equitation held their general meeting and year end awards banquet on Saturday, November 11, 2017. The food was awesome: beef tenderloin, roasted chicken, roasted veggies, roasted potatoes, salad, salmon, chips and guacamole, cake and grape dessert. A shout out to the cooks for their effort on Saturday in lieu of ponies - it was a fantastic feast.

After the attendees were fed, the general meeting began.

Chris Stanko, President, welcomes everyone and begins the meeting

Much was talked about. It was determined that within the club we have riders that want to participate in Fun Days and Schooling Shows, and riders who want to compete in Rated Shows, for National Awards and Medals. HCWE believes we will be able to accommodate both in the coming year, but it will take help from our community in volunteers to make it happen.

Karen Burch, VP/Treasurer and Chris Stanko, President

The situation with WE United and the Confederation for Working Equitation entering into talks about merging into one National Organization was thoroughly discussed. Pros and cons were laid out and the Club decided to license our shows with the Confederation for Working Equitation for the 2018 season. This decision will help with keeping costs down and expand the judging pool for our shows.

Nancy Copeland and Ann Hayes honored with HCWE's Golden Riders Award.

Acknowledging and Thanking our Show Secretary and score keeper.

Hallo-WE-en

8 Riders
Some pretty fantastic costumes
9 obstacles

HCWE's second Annual Hallo-WE-en event was a huge success

 Since it was just for fun and to give our riders an opportunity to ride a bit faster than they were used to, everyone had an hour to school their horses on the obstacles.
