FOA’s at Spruce Meadows

trioThese “Friends of Appaloosas” are part of the volunteer corps helping promote the breed at the Spruce Meadows “Masters” event this week in Calgary. On the left is Shelby Biddlecombe, Claresholm, Alberta, who happens to be President of the Appaloosa Horse Association of Alberta this year. In the center is Connie Hunter of Sunset Stock Horses, Fort Macleod, Alberta. Connie brought a yearling filly by All Around Texas to help greet visitors to the exhibit area in the Riding Hall. Each club volunteer for the AHAA booth also makes the commitment to bring an Appaloosa horse for the day. The breed exhibits are an obvious draw for young and old at the Masters. On the right is Stacey Engleson of Taber, Alberta. She’s a horsewoman and an Appaloosa friend, but also a terrific young artist. One of her paintings was used for the Appaloosa Horse Club of Canada’s 50th Anniversary show poster this year. Looks like another of her works will find its way to Moscow! Thanks ladies.
