Update From the Board

Dear GHCTA Membership,

I wanted to update you all on the happenings that have been going on with the new Board. Most of us have been on the Board for quite some time but we are thrilled to get some "new blood" with the arrival of Katie Stripling, Laura Bolerjack and Holly Parks. We are all working hard at moving forward with the Association goals of educational opportunities and the provision of well organized and high standard competitions. Please take a look at the Contact Us page for a short bio and contact information for each of the Board members.

The new GHCTA calendar year will start on December 1st and with the ever popular Pine Hill Schooling Show on December 2nd we will be off to a great start. Lets make 2019 the best year ever and get those memberships in - this year, for the first time, we will be offering Corporate membership which will allow businesses and trainers to have ads and links on our website. Go to the JOIN page for details of membership levels.

As a member you will accrue points towards our Year End Awards and the Awards Banquet is the highlight of our year.This year we will have a slightly more formalized Annual General Meeting (AGM) and we will be asking you to vote on old and new Board members - more details to follow as we get closer to the Banquet date of .......?

I would like you all to remember that this is YOUR Association. Your Board members are all passionate Eventers who love their sport and want to see it thriving and growing in the local community. We would love to hear any comments and suggestions that you might have to promote and improve GHCTA. Please take the time to email us or just talk to us when you see us at the shows.

All the best,

Lucy, (I do not own a dirty pony, she is more like a dirty Hippo!)

GHCTA 2018 Board

Dear GHCTA Members,

I am super excited to announce the leadership role of President of GHCTA is now being fulfilled by Lucy Chalcraft and Vice President is now being filled by Laura Bolerjack. In addition, we have added some new faces that are energized and ready to take GHCTA to the next level.

My tenure as GHCTA President, Vice President, and Board Member at Large have been the best and most rewarding experiences. I am humbled by all of our amazing riders, coaches, facility owners, four-legged athletes, and even the naughty ponies that have crossed my path over the past 10+ years.

I am thrilled about the new opportunities ahead for GHCTA and all the great things that the members and board can be a part of.
