Calizona hosts clinic, makes friends for the breed

Another good example of regional club outreach. Thanks again to Leslie Foxvog for sharing the information.

The Calizona ApHC Banding & Braiding Clinic was held this past Saturday at TLC (riding center) in Norco. The activity netted our treasury with $210. There were 16 total participants with the primary being young students at TLC. Thanks to Toni as the Clinician. Thanks to Pam & Dean and Patti Kanegae for donations of clips and assistance to Toni in helping the students. Leslie brought down two horses for Toni to demonstrate on and participants practiced what they learned on the demo horses and their own horses too. Calizona provided each participant with a mane clip, spray bottle, and braiding puller (made by Dean).

It was fun and we not only provided others with banding and braiding techniques but we exposed TLC to our beloved Appaloosas.

Additionally, this year Calizona sponsored high point awards for two of the TLC schooling shows (buckets with various product and things CZ has from our shows). When I dropped off the buckets last weekend at the show, one of the show assistants or parent (?) expressed appreciation for the “relationship” with CZ for their shows. She said it isn’t just the high points which everyone loves but it is also that CZ supports the shows with great horses and great people. Its not about winning classes but the members show the kids quality riding, quality presentation and what to strive for. The Appaloosa people have been very supportive of the kids and show participants. I was honored to hear what she had to say and am very lucky to pass along her compliments.

We look forward to another clinic in the future – thanks to everyone for the help and donations!

President, Calizona ApHC
