As always thank you to DiAnn Langer and Farwest Farms for beautiful perpetual trophies.
Thank you to Tonya Johnston who held a "Mental Skills For Medal Finals" clinic prior to the Jr/Am Medal Finals. It was a great success with lots of riders who came to listen and get some great ideas to manage the stress that we all share in Medal Finals. We much appreciate her contribution to our sport and her willingness to share her knowledge.
Thank you to all who bought VIP Tables to support the CPHA Foundation. Without your support the Foundation could not do what it does to support those in need!

Sadly we say good-bye to a beloved member of the horse community. Maggie McHugh passed away on Monday April 29, 2019. She recently suffered a stroke and did not recover from it. Maggie worked for the PCHA for 37 years and her service was so much appreciated. She was a highly respected trainer and rider in both the western and Hunter/Jumper disciplines. She received many PCHA year-end awards in all divisions she participated in. She supported the CPHA for many years as well: her husband even created the LOGO which has been in existence since 1964! She will be missed and we wish her peace and comfort.
Green Enrollment information
Please note that to enter your horse into the CPHA Green Hunter Incentive Program is only $250.00 until March 1st and then it goes up to $450.00.
The PCHA/CPHA banquets were a great success to all of you who came to support our honorees.
