Millarville Saddlesores News: Wrapping Up Another Year

Nyla Wright, Club Reporter
Millarville Saddlesores have wrapped up another busy year.
On May 28th, our Achievement Day was held.  Cassandra Day was the judge.  Everything we learned this year was put to the test from showmanship, Western pleasure, equitation and trail.
In June, three members attended 4H on Parade in Calgary.  It was definitely a learning experience.
On June 11th, we had our banquet and award evening.  Club member achievement awards were beautiful winter blankets for our horses.  Cleaver members received a bucket full of basic items for their horses.  These awards were from Greenhawk Harness & Equestrian Supplies.
Record book awards:
  • Junior – Clara Blatz
  • Intermediate – Kylie Manzer
  • Senior – Marty Blatz
Public Speaking:  Clara Blatz
Sportsmanship:  Brooklyn Collard
Mr. and Mrs. Palmer presented the J.C. Palmer Award to Kylie Manzer.
Millarville Saddlesores wish to thank our Club Sponsor Farm Credit Canada.
