To Northwest Miniature Horse and Shetand Pony Alliance. The NWMHSPA was formed in October of 2014 bringing together, Washington State Shetland Pony Club and Pacific Crown Shetland Pony & Miniature Horse Club, two long standing, active ASPC/AMHR recognized clubs in Area VIII. The goal of our club is to promote small equines and to help educate the public in the joys of owning these wonderful equines.
2019 has started out with some pretty awesome weather. We have had a very mild winter, for the Northwest, compared to the winter of 2018. We hope all of our members and their families continue to have good health and happiness as we head into spring.
2019 is going to be a fun filled year for NWMHSPA. We hope to see many returning members, along with seeing some new faces this year. Please be sure and click on the link for our membership application. Our club has been hard at work looking for ways to entice new and old members alike to join our all-inclusive club. We will be offering a new program this year, and we are very excited to offer this to our Area 8 breeders. The NWMHSPA Stallion Sweepstakes is a new and exciting program being offered to our stallion owners here in the NW. There is information on our FB page regarding this
program, as well as on our Club News page. We are also offering an Online Auction, with lots of great items and services being offered. This auction will be ongoing, with new items being offered every
few days. Please visit our FB page to see all the great items being offered. There will be 10-12 items listed every three days. Items will be available for bidding for 48 hours, at the end of the auction each winner will be posted. Winning bidders can pay for their items via paypal and items will be shipped out within 24 hours of receiving payment.
2019 will have an added challenge for all clubs in the Northwest. We have 4 shows in the month of June. The only way our clubs can survive is through donations, sponsorships and exhibitor participation. Each club will be struggling to get exhibitors to attend the back to back events. I hope each of us will be
able to help the clubs to have a successful show. If you are unable to attend all of these shows, maybe send a donation to the clubs to help support it.
The NWMHSPA will be, again, offering the carriage classes at our show, please be aware of the new carriage class requirements. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact one of your board members. We will also continue to offer the Stock Type Halter classes. If there are any classes you would like seen offered, please be sure and contact us and we would be happy to work on fitting
those classes into our class list. We will continue to offer mentoring to newbies. Several of our long-time
members are offering their expertise, advice and guidance to new people entering the world of small equines. So if you have always wanted to join a club and come out and show off your horses, join now and plan on attending show. Thank you for your continued support of the NWMHSPA. See you all down the road. Safe travels and best of luck in 2019.
