Alberta trophies002I had the opportunity to spend Saturday with the Alberta ApHA regional club at the group’s annual meeting and awards banquet, held in Nisku. The AHAA organization has been a territory winner of the exemplary club award a couple of times and has hosted successful “dual-approved” shows in the province. Several members came home from the World Show in Fort Worth with championships and other high placings.

During the membership meeting, there were some good discussions about what works and what doesn’t for a regional club. I visited with them about ApHC programs and trends. We agreed that the horse industry was changing and that it was not only okay to think outside the box, but maybe we need to get rid of the box. The good news is that this group is a creative bunch and I’m confident they will be providing some good examples of how to attract new Appaloosa fans.

Thanks to everyone for a great visit. I enjoyed the chats and free advice. Congratulations to Laurie Knox, who was re-elected president of AHAA for the coming year.
