2019, 2021, 2023 Sport Horse Nationals

The Arabian Horse Association has announced that the 2019, 2021 and 2023 Sport Horse Nationals will be held at Hitts (Balmoral Race Track). These Nationals will be in our back yard so look forward for more information. ABU will be the host club for these extraordinary shows. We look forward to working with AHA on its success. Again, we will keep you posted so you can make your plans.

President & Directors Message
Hope everyone had a good summer.  We hope you all did well at the shows. And those of you involved in trail riding will welcome the cool weather. We had some bumps along the way this summer. I had to have surgery from an accident. And others had illnesses and were swamped at work.  We look forward to moving  ahead and will keep you up dated.
The officers and directors welcome suggestions regarding speakers and other activities you would like us to plan. Feel free to call or email any of us.

On behalf of the ABU Arabian Horse Club – we offer our condolences on the loss of Nancy Vente. Nancy passed away on Sunday, November 3rd. Nancy was very involved with Arabian horses. She had several throughout her life. Nancy and her sister Kathy used to show their horses at many of the ABU sponsored Arabian and Half Arabian open and class A rated horse shows and spent many weekends attending clinics. Nancy is survived by her sister Kathy Vente. Rest in peace Nancy, we will miss you.

Member Spotlight

This will be dedicated to the many members of our club. Many times we do not recognize each other. However, each and every member is important to our club. We will be picking the members names at random and may be calling you to spotlight you and your horse on the website.
