Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all my Region 4 friends! I hope by now you have all started planning your ride year, beginning with the New Year Ride at 7IL. If you are still on the fence about going, here are a couple of incentives:

  1. We have a new annual award donated by Kate Love, Marilyn Bivens and Kimberly Winterrowd
    • Eligible horse must begin their competition career in either the CP or Open division having never competed in NATRC Novice division.
    • A horse is only eligible for the award in its first year of competition.
    • Winning horse would be the horse with the highest number of accumulated points earned in either the CP or Open Division or a combination of rides in the CP and Open Division during the current competition year.
    • No horse having previously competed in a Novice class at any NATRC sanctioned ride will be eligible.
    • A horse may compete in CP and/or Open in its first competition year. All points earned by the horse in either of those two divisions will be counted towards the Rookie Horse of the Year award.
    • Horse must have completed 3 rides in the current year to be eligible.
  2. You can help support and encourage a brand new management team: Marjorie Shenkir and Tanya Watkins.
  3. You can thank Marjorie for stepping up to join the Region 4 Board of Directors. She will take office January 1st along with our new National Director, Alice Yovich.

I would also like to thank Phil Brodersen, who will be finishing a temporary appointment to fill a vacancy earlier this year, Patti Hicks for stepping up one more time to fill the VP position, and of course Elaine Swiss for representing us on the NATRC BOD for the past six years.

Carla Jo Bass has her committee working to put together the Region Four Convention at the Decatur Civic Center on February 27 - 28. Make your reservations with the Baymont Inn and Suites. Call 940-627-3338 before January 31st to get the great room rates of $60 + tax for regular queen/king rooms and $65 + tax for queen/king SUITES!

Don’t forget to snag your copy of the R4 Roundup below. Did you know that you can download all the PDF documents (newsletter, rule book, manuals) to your tablet, laptop or mobile device to have with you all the time!
