Southeastern Hackney Horse Association holds meeting

The annual meeting of the Southeastern Hackney Horse Association was held Feb. 19-20 at the Clarion Hotel in Roanoke, Va. There was a reception for members and guests Friday evening following the meeting.

Dr. Wallace Palmer, the director of large animal field services of the Virginia Tech School of Veterinary Medicine, presented a very informative lecture and demonstration on “Hot Topics in Veterinary Medicine” Saturday morning. The segments on colic and lameness were especially interesting.

During the afternoon business meeting, the members revised futurity rules, set up committees and planned events for the coming year. The current officers were reelected to serve in 2005: President, Jack Richards Jr.; vice president, Lee Adams-Hudson; secretary/treasurer, Charlotte Carter; newsletter/publicity, Lib McClellan and Mary Daughtry.

The banquet was held Saturday night, followed by a fund-raising auction and presentation of the high point awards. The winners received tricolor ribbons and leather halters with the winning pony’s name engraved on a brass plate. There was also a display of the members with their “first ponies” and the current pony. Lee Adams-Hudson and Harry Daughtry really had to dig into the archives for their first pony.

Activities planned for 2005 include continuing the high point awards, the futurity, promotion of youth activities, donation of trophies to horse shows, a road pony clinic, an exhibitors’ dessert party at the North Carolina State Fair Horse Show, and a 50/50 raffle, which will go all year with the grand prize drawn Saturday night at the North Carolina State Fair.

Anyone interested in joining the club, nominating ponies for the futurity and/or the high point awards should contact Charlotte Carter; 400 Everidge Rd., Winston-Salem, NC 27013; (336) 765-0460 (home), (336) 650-7102 (office).
