Show season is now under- way and we’ve all had a chance to dust the remnants of winter off and see if all the work we’ve done with our horses over the winter has paid off. It’s also given us the chance to socialize a little with friends we haven’t seen since last summer.

At our annual banquet good company, food and drink all got together to honour those who won awards and high points last year. Check out our website, to see who won and for what. The banquet also gave us the occasion to honour some outstanding individuals for the hard work and extra effort that they’ve taken to support our club.

“She is a person who would go to any length to help you out. No matter the job - or what was needed to be done. Help never had to be asked for, she was always there. She goes an extra mile and demonstrates team work.”

The Bill Borland Award, which is donated by the Hitsman family to the person who goes that extra mile, is always willing to help and demonstrates excep- tional team work and spirit, was awarded to: Marlene Goldsmith. The Awards Committee described Marlene this way:

The Goodwill Award, goes to the person who contributes willingly and unasked in any way they can to assist the club. This year’s recipient is: Sherry Newbigging. The Awards Com- mittee explained why Sherry had been chosen: “Even though she wasn’t riding, )she was only showing halter and showman- ship), she helped to set up our trail courses, helped out with the golf cart trail, fixed up the trail obstacles that got moved and generally helped out anywhere she could. She really didn’t have to travel all the way up here, but she did, because she supports our club and has fun here, so she was nominated because of the volunteer effort she put into our club, without being asked to do so.” -----------

The EOQHA Hall of Fame also received a new inductee. Murray Whiticar, this year’s
