Director's Note Spring '18 coming soon


Dear Region 9 Members,

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is having a great new- year so far. We are already in full swing of another horse show season, so good luck everyone!


We are all aware of the upcoming Region 9 Championship Horse show May 30th – June 2nd. The premium book is online, so please start your planning early. Please review the parking section for the new parking protocol. 

Also, the patrons lounge is completely new for 2018. Many of you may remember the location in the coliseum a long time ago. The rooms have been renovated and are exclusive to members during the Ft. Worth rodeo. We are fortunate enough to be able to have the space for our patrons lounge. Dine in for a view of the show arena, or you can dine out with go boxes. The catering is being provided by the renowned Reata Restaurant. One new menu feature is lighter lunches like a salad bar and sandwiches/wraps daily. Make sure you visit our website for more info and buy your patrons package before the early bird deadline of MAY 1ST! Any questions can be directed to Debbie or Annalise Himmel.

I'd like to thank all of you who participated in and contributed to the successful January Amateur High Point Awards event and membership meeting. Congratulations to all who were recognized for their achievements throughout the show season. We had a good turn out and it seemed like everyone enjoyed a little horse free fun. Special thanks goes out to Margo Shallcross and Karen Campbell for spear heading this event.


Special congratulations to all of our Region 9 amateurs, youth, trainers, and breeders who were recognized at the 2018 AHT Awards in Scottsdale, Az.

 Again I want to thank everyone in Region 9 that helps in their own way to make Region 9 successful and one of the best Regions in AHA. “Geaux Region 9”

As always you can reach me via email at I look forward to seeing you at upcoming events.
