Tonight was the 2017 Arkansas Hunter Jumper Association (AHJA) Year-End Awards Banquet. Although our show year ends in early November, the club takes the rest of the year off so as not to conflict with any holidays, and then has the banquet the following January.
Because I’m the club secretary, I coordinate with the show secretary a lot, and the two of us work together to keep track of members and points throughout the year. It works out pretty well, especially because Paige is the show secretary, and also basically my best horsey friend.
After winning four championships and one reserve out of five shows for the year, it was pretty easy to figure out where I was in the standings for my division with common sense alone. So it wasn’t any surprise to me that I’d be winning certain awards.
