2011 Awards Banquet and Dance-Off

Click to Like

The first-ever Dance-Off fundraiser was held at the annual awards banquet. Dancers were nominated for a fee and could opt out by paying a fee, but most of those nominated chose to dance. The band judged the dancers and chose the winners. Dancers had the opportunity to rock-out to the YMCA song and show off their macarena moves, too. Judging by the smiles on the contestants' faces, everyone had a good time.

After the meeting and election we were treated to a presentation about lameness issues in the reining horse by equine internal medicine specialist, Dr. Peter Heideman of Montana Equine Associates of Logan, Montana. Dr. Heideman has the special talent of not only being expert at this topic, but is unique in that he can relate the topic in layman’s terms for the general public to understand. It was a very informative talk and we thank Dr. Heideman for taking the time to speak to us.

Before the festivities started, YRHA held the general membership meeting. Longtime board member, Kurt Stabenau, was leaving the board. He has been a huge asset to the board, lending his common sense approach to business decisions. He always kept the membership at the forefront of all his thinking. The board will miss his presence.
