MassQHA would like to give a very special thank you to Don Gillespie and his team for all the hard work and dedication they put in over the last year to plan this event. Thank you!
And the MassQHA Board of Directors and Officers for supporting the event.
Message from the President…..
We have an exciting year ahead of us with our April Novice show and the May show. In addition, planning is already underway for a MassQHA sponsored trail ride. The shows are critical to funding activities to promote the American Quarter Horse throughout the year.
Along with a dedicated and committed Board of Directors, we are extremely fortunate to an active Youth Association with outstanding leadership and support.
Finally, I'm asking every one of the members to get involved; join a subcommittee, be a MassQHA ambassador at the shows, meetings, or trail rides, and offer suggestions to improve the experience of all the members. Let’s together make 2014 a successful year for MassQHA.
Mike McCallan, President MassQHA
