Indiana POAC Newsletter

The leaves are turning colors and the Indiana POAC is gearing up for a haunted good time at the October Show! Join us October 18-19 in Cloverdale, IN for some trick-or- treating, chili pitch-in, s’mores and oh yeah, a high point show! Participants will compete for high point and reserve high point girl and boy: Lead line, youth 8 and under, 9-12, 13-18, 19 and over. Overall high point and reserve in-hand, JPFC and novice pony/rider combinations. Members may also decorate their stalls and bring candy to share with all the little princesses, ghosts and goblins that will visit their stalls following the show in costume. This is your last chance to show in front of judges for your Indiana year-end awards. A total of nine judges must be shown to qualify for prizes at the 2014 banquet. If points are what you are looking for or just a fun time with friendly competition, please have your stall reservations to Charlene Shingleton at shinglepoas@aol.com by October 10th. You can get directions to the show or check out the show bill on our website at www.inpoac.com.

Speaking of end of the year, don’t forget to make your reservations now for the December 6th Annual INPOAC Banquet and High Point Presentation. This year’s celebration will take place at Abe Martin Lodge in Brown County Indiana. To be a part of the celebration, call 877-563-4371to make your reservation. The room block and discounted rate will be available through November 1st for $101.99 under group code 1206IP.

In August we celebrated before and after the rain at our show in Franklin, IN. Members dined on pork sandwiches provided by the Wolfe family – thank you! We would also like to thank the Shingletons who provided a potato bar and hotdogs just before the storms hit at our September show in New Castle, IN. Thank you to everyone who braved the weather. We are looking forward to our indoor show in October! Join Us!

Youth Corner

Hello everyone! This is Alex Hemberger with your Indiana POA youth fall news. Not much has been happening because of school starting. A regular at our Indiana shows, Connor Collinsworth, from Michigan, has purchased a new pony! Livin' In The Big Tyme and Connor seem to be getting along just fine! The Indiana Club was well represented at the National Congress in Tulsa by our youth! Two 13-18 girls cleaned up in showmanship! Frances Shoaf came in first overall and Ashley Corn came in second overall. Both girls had GREAT patterns! Justyce Chapman won Leadline Horsemanship and Leadline Costume for the girls! What an accomplishment for a 6 and under!

The Tearmans have been very busy as I have heard. The boys are doing great in the hockey rink, and Sable is going to Quarter Horse Congress to participate in the national judging contest. Good luck to all of you! Leah Korby is taking Health Science Education. Sounds like she's having fun and learning a lot!
