AMHA Convention Report

SCORE!! I have pictures from the Convention, compliments of Chris Cassenti of Chrislar Farm. If anyone else has pictures from the Convention to share, this is the place to do it. For instructions on how to post a photo, go to the Video/Pictures category, then select the title “Adding Photos – The Easy Way” to see the instructions.

Judy Whitney received the Breeder of the Year award and got up to say a few words to those assembled.  She is pictured here with Lisa and Steve and Josie Davis.

I also have a picture of outgoing AMHA President Mike Goebig passing the gavel to new President Cindy Mugnier.

The next picture is of the legendary Marilyn Childs (you can see an in-depth profile of Marilyn Childs on the NYSMHS website) with Chris Cassenti and AMHA Director George Arnold from California.

The last picture shows Valerie Low (on the left) with her friends from the NYSMHS, Mark Langdon and Nancy Vidler. Valerie is the one responsible for the profile of Marilyn Childs. She also received an award from AMHA for the work she has done preserving much of the history of the Morgan horse which can be seen at Congratulations Valerie for a job well-done!

Chris also reported that the winner of the Cecil Brown Good Sportsmanship Award was Alex Mooney and that this is the first time that a Jr. Exhibitor has won this award. Alex lives in Oregon where she is awaiting a lung transplant after suffering with cystic fibrosis since birth.

Chris was a presenter for two of the Seminars which she said were all very well attended.  Both of her Seminars (Developing a Lesson Program and Marketing Your Morgan) went overtime – always the sign of a good discussion.  If anyone has video of any of the Seminars  or award presentations, this would be a good place to post them.  See the FAQ for instructions on posting video.
