2017 IQHA RACING CONVENTION

There is a great deal of positive happening in our horse industry. We have never given up on our quest for fair treatment.  A comparison of all forms of gaming in our state shows that only racing returns all the money back to Idaho, the industry, small communities and youth programs.  All other forms of gaming are huge take aways from our citizens and state. The lottery has some positive influence with its support of schools.  We will forward you more on this subject later.
 
Right now we need to focus on our industry, the Bitterroot Sale, the Annual IQHA Racing Convention and meeting, Hall of Fame and year end rewards. The annual meeting will be held in Jackpot, Nevada to make it more centered for everyone in the state. This is a fun place to meet and everyone drives a little way to get there.
 
Your 2017 Bitterroot Sales committee is chaired by Marta Loveland.  She and her committee are doing a good job and have many great stallions in the sale. If you have a special breeding, you need to let them know so it will be in the sale.
 
Our Hall of Fame inductees this year will be Len Milton. Len has had a great career training horses in the Northwest and California. Everyone knows Len, and this will be a wonderful celebration.
 
We have some outstanding horses and owners this year to celebrate with great awards and recognition. These are our friends and their great horses, we are going to celebrate.
 
Finally, hair testing is a huge topic across our country and in our state. Your board has taken action on the subject and will discuss it at the annual meeting Saturday afternoon. You will like what you hear. Bring your friends and your questions.
 
The annual meeting will be held Saturday January 20, 2018 at Jackpot, Nevada.
The Bitterroot Auction will be held on Sunday January 21, 2018.
