We held a general meeting last Tuesday evening August 6th and had a great turn-out with many new faces and members. Thank you everyone for attending.
A few updates and highlights of meeting:
Congratulations to Cassidy Sabral our 2019 $500 Scholarship Award recipient! Not only is Cassidy enrolled in Chico State for the fall semester to study animal science, she is also a long-time member of PHA and we are so proud and honored to grant this award to her!
We have received two more substantial donations towards our arena rebuild efforts. The Paradise Rotary Foundation and Back Country Horseman's Association. With these donations, we can now purchase gravel for our roadway and possibly put money towards rebuilding our arena wood railing and upgrading our announcer booth.
We will be holding our first Drill Team practice/try-outs this sunday at 2pm at the arena. This will be for the performance at the Horse Festival/Grand Reopening on September 29th. This is open to our members only and horses must be able to handle cantering in close proximity to other horses and deal with crowds and music. We can only have 12 horse/rider combinations on the Drill Team and weekly practices for the next 5 weeks will be mandatory. If you are interested, please come out to the arena on Sunday afternoon.
ALSO...we are still in need of demonstrations for our Festival. Please...if you have any suggestions or are interested in participating, please let us know. We would like to offer a petting zoo, vendors, snack bar, stick horse races(we have NO stick horses as they all burned in the fire), information booth, etc... The media, town council, PRPD and Chamber of Commerce will all be present at this event. We would really appreciate our membership to attend and help.
Our next meeting is scheduled for September 5th at 6pm at the Ihop Restaurant in Chico. This meeting will be strictly for the Horse Festival planning. Please join us.
We will NOT be holding a gymkhana show in September. BUT...that doesn't mean that we cannot have a member-only playday, jackpot, gymkhana event. If we have members that want to hold a show, we can have arena prepped for the day. Anyone interested?
October 5 & 6th is our annual PHA campout and trail-ride at Meadowbrook Ranch in upper Magalia. This is a FREE event to our members and a ton of fun. If you are interested in joining us...we need you to rsvp. If we do not have members interested, we will cancel our reservations at Meadowbrook.
Also...it is a Paradise Horsemen's Association tradition to hold a member-only Halloween Playday and we will not dissapoint! Mark your calendars for October 26th for some great spooktacular fun!

We will be holding our General Meeting this Thursday evening, September 5th at the Ihop Restaurant in Chico. Meeting will start promptly at 6pm. Please arrive by 5:30 if possible to order dinner.
This meeting will be focused on our upcoming Grand Reopening Horse Festival scheduled for September 29th.
Please...we are asking our members to be in attendance. This is a huge undertaking for our club and a lot still needs to be done in order for us to make this event a success...not only for our club, but for our rebuilding town of Paradise as well.
We NEED more people to demonstrate riding disciplines and different breeds of horses! We need vendors, snack bar helpers, arena help, announcer booth help, help with advertising, parking, etc... We have something for everyone to help with...You will not be left out!
Please find attached the minutes from our last meeting. PHA 8-7 MIN (1).docx
Looking forward to seeing you all Thursday evening!
Until we ride, Scarlett Miller, President, Paradise Horsemen's Association
