2016 Southeastern Hackney Association Meeting

The Southeastern Hackney Association held its annual meeting and awards banquet the weekend of February 19-20, 2016, at the Best Western in Burlington, NC. This venue has been very convenient and hospitable for several years. A large group of Hackney enthusiasts met and enjoyed the weekend’s events. During the business meeting the current officers were re-elected for 2016: President – Bo Lucas, Vice-President – Carl Nichols, Secretary – Buffy Turner, Treasurer – Charles Leonard. Megan Whitby was elected to join Heather Boodey, Sammye Lucas, Jean Myers and Mel Joyner on the board. Matt Shuckert, the Vice-President of AHHS, was the main speaker. He gave a very informative talk about updates in the AHHS and the push for a “user friendly” association. A question and answer session followed and everyone enjoyed hearing his perspective and of course a few stories about ponies! During the business session a copy of the by-laws was passed out to everyone for input on updating at the next meeting.

While the adults were in the meetings, the SEHA youth had pizza, played laser tag and enjoyed a presentation on “Success in the Saddle” by Hannah Sette. Amy Calisto and Catherine Leonard organized this fun afternoon which ended up with an ice cream party.

The banquet was well attended and the buffet was delicious. President Bo Lucas recognized Steve Hanks for his recent honor as UPHA horse show manager of the year and Lewis Eckard on his recent induction into the AHHS and American Road Horse and Road Pony Halls of Fame. He also presented Eddie Case with the Betty Glasgow Service Award. Heather Boodey presented the high point awards featuring nice picture frames with a reduced price certificate for pictures from Sandra Hall or Doug Shiflet. The meeting ended up with the very lively and entertaining auction. Eddie Case was the auctioneer and the auction was a resounding success netting the club $9,200.00! The very generous donations by Catherine and Carl Nichols, including stud fees to Dun Haven Phenomenal, helped to make this the most successful auction ever. Everyone who attended had a great time and is looking forward to a new year and show season.
