Trail Horse Test Program Enriched through USEF Membership Incentive Grant
The Paso Fino Horse Association’s Recreational Rider program rolled out its Trail Horse Test Program in 2017. The program provides a way to demonstrate the horse’s ability to perform trail riding skills based upon a series of tests that gauges the horse’s natural ability and training against a standard of performance. Awards for the program include patches, bridle tags, halters, and saddle pads with embroidery work that demarcates the horse’s level.
Thank you to the United States Equestrian Federation for the Membership Incentive Grant that supported the institution of this program.
PFHA Youth Seminars
The PFHA Youth Committee is ecstatic to have Master Farrier O’Neill Garcia at Team USA tryouts in South Carolina & Florida. He will be part of our ongoing PFHA YOUTH SEMINARS where our Youth can develop a better understanding of why overall Horse Care is imperative for their horse(s).
O’Neill Garcia resume includes:
– Garcia graduated from Oklahoma’s Horseshoeing School in 1991
– In 1997 Garcia was a teacher for two years in the same school
– Garcia is part of the AFA Association. In February of 2016, he became an Equine Podiatry receiving certification in Bilbao Spain in a BF Academy.
As these youth riders are the future trainers, owners, judges, etc. of our great breed, any future education is imperative for PFHA.
Thanks to the United States Equestrian Federation for the grant money provided we are able to further the PFHA Youth’s education on how important overall equine health is to their horse(s).
Welcome to the New PFHA Website
This vibrant, eye-catching Association site is designed to provide information not only to our Members, but also to Visitors seeking to find out more about our Paso Fino horse and our Association.
The Computer Committee and the good folks at Millermark Creations did a great job of capturing the look and flavor of the Association. I draw your attention to a couple of new items on the site: Find a Farm and Find a Show. These are maps where
every farm can be quickly located, along with pertinent information about the farm. I want every Member farm reflected on the map (it’s FREE). On the second map, Find a Show, you will be able to find every sanctioned show as well as many
of the events where Members demonstrate our Paso Finos.
The good folks at CNTi are working on revising the Member Only section of the website and expect to roll that out early in 2018. Meanwhile, the PFHA website is here for Members to use. Please continue to send in stories, pictures, farm and
horse information, etc. and we will get it posted!
As always, we value your comments and suggestions. Please let us know where we can improve.
