Wouldn’t it be nice to have an excuse to dust off that Friesian Sjees you have been carefully storing but have not had a good reason to show it off?  FHANA’s 35th Anniversary committee may just have come to your rescue. We are inviting each Chapter to Ponoka, Alberta in July of 2019 to come with their representative Sjees and Horse(s) to challenge all other Chapters as to who can present the most impressive turnout.

We would like to encourage each FHANA Chapter to actively consider participating. We also understand that distance may be a serious inhibitor for many Chapters. Our committee will be happy to offer some other participatory events for those individual members who are planning to be a part of this Challenge by representing their Chapter. We are aware that if you invest the required time and effort to come to Ponoka with your horse(s) and Sjees for the Chapter Challenge, you may want to be involved in some other events as well with your Friesian(s) to make it more worth your while.

The Friesian Sjezen Chapter Challenge is scheduled for the evening show, Tuesday July 16, at the impressive Calnash Ag Event Centre. We plan to make your stay during the 3 day event as comfortable as possible, whether it is the stabling facilities, ample parking space, or camping area with water and power hookups.

For more information please contact committee member Annie Muilwijk   1 403 598 3675 or kees-annie@muilwijk.org
