President’s Message

Welcome to 2022! May this year bring joy, peace and hope to all of us in abundance.

Even with the ups and downs of the pandemic, our Palomino family, PHBA, brought love and joy into each other’s lives and to some outside of our family circle.
Our World Show saw tremendous growth due to the hard work of many.
–          The $50,000 BAG Money sponsored by Terry & Tammy Bradshaw for Amateur Halter;
–          Youth’s many donors made it a reality for every youth exhibitor to truly enjoy being “family” with gifts and fun events;
–          Terry Furnish Memorial event came to life due to some of our Past Presidents.
–          The Amateurs held their second annual drive collecting items for a local charity event with repeated success.
–          Amateurs also raised enough funds to cover all their PHBA awards & other expenses for the entire year
–          PHB Heritage Foundation showed their continued support with sponsoring the Youth WS pizza party, buying 12+ pages in the WS 80th program, bringing in many Sponsor Drive donations, while increasing the Museum financial support to PHBA for more shared expenses.

2022 offers our Palomino family all these and more…so be active, participate behind the scenes as well as in the arena to enjoy the benefits and help grow our family!
–          Celebrate the 80th Anniversary of TPEA, PHEK and OPEA
–          BAG Money increased to $100,000 for Amateur Halter & Color classes
–          Buckles for all Youth Halter class winners, donated by the Bradshaw’s
–          Payout monies for three (3) Open performance classes and Open Color, $4,500 so far! More to   come…

Looking forward to seeing y’all in March at our “family reunion”, the Convention in Tulsa! Bring your work boots and ideas…

Respectfully,

Mimsi
