We're back....and a look back on 2011

WELCOME BACK everyone to a new year of reining excitement. I have been a little slow at getting organized for 2012, but I have a series of posts I plan to make to get everyone back in the mood for reining and the upcoming show hold onto your hats cause here we go...!
First of all how about a recap of some of the exciting things that have happened to our core members in 2011...

Our president, Dawnna-
What a year! Dawnna, is literally embarking on a new life. Having finished course work in Kamloops, she was hired to work in both WL and 100 Mile hospitals. Along with that, she and her partner, Pat have moved in and are embarking on a life together. Everyone is commenting on how happy she looks, and we all wish her well in all her new endeavors. Dawnna continues to immerse herself in her horse pursuits, working with her young gelding, competitively barrel racing, and of course, focusing on reining. Her energy and enthusiasm are inspiring to us all. One of her hurdles she had to overcome this summer was a severe and traumatic injury to her barrel mare.
Despite the severity of the wounds, she has made a complete recovery and is back to chasing cans with a vengence!

Our Vice President, Tiffany
Tiffany's focus this summer was on wedding plans and she is now happily married into the Pincott family. Her wedding was about as picturesque as a cowboy wedding can be, including being carried to the alter by her reining horse!
How beautiful! We all wish Tiffany the best!

Our Clinic Organizer, Mandy
Mandy and her family welcomed a new addition, baby girl, Larah into their life. Sweet and healthy, and new baby sister to Kaylee! Congratulations!! We're looking forward to having Mandy back in the saddle again!

Our youth liason, Ronnie
Ronnie had a stellar year capping it off by being named to Team BC, to go back and compete in reining at the Canadian Equestrian Championships. It was an incredible opportunity, and the club was proud to support Ronnie, by presenting her with a cheque to help cover her costs. Well done, Ronnie! Ronnie has gone to school to become a vet assistant. We wish her all the best!

Club Member, Courtney
Courtney is one of our newer members, and after taking a clinic last year with trainer, Carl Woods, she made the decision to send her young horse, Dallas into training with Carl.  Dallas is back home, and Courtney is thrilled with the results. She is looking forward to being an active member and continuing to learn about reining so that she may move forward with Dallas. We hope we can support you, Courtney!

Club member, Tanya
Not to be outdone, club member, Tanya, has recently announced her official engagement! I see another cowboy wedding in the Cariboo in the near future! Congratulations, Tanya!

We are all excited to start the new year, and welcome new members to join our close knit group as we work together to move forward in learning about reining, and supporting each other in our personal lives and our lives with our horses!
2012, here we come!
