Wine Country Arabian Horse Association sent 3 Delegates to the annual AHA convention in Denver, Colorado, Debbie Wiegmann, Patti Belanger, Susan Noonan. We all had a great time, attended a lot of meetings and came back with a lot of ideas and activities for our club in 2018.   The best part of Convention was that our club won the 2017 AHA Club of the Year Award, along with winning the Membership Recruitment and the Club Projects Award. We are so proud of all our directors, members and everyone who has supported us. This was such an awesome evening for our club which we started only 3 years ago.

Region 11
 
Region XI delegates enjoyed a great convention in Denver in November and look forward to a special 2018.  As previously announced, the Region XI main ring show is moving back to the Illinois State Fairgrounds this year.  Much discussion is already underway with the fairgrounds management to ensure that there is an adequate show office area and plenty of extra dirt area for working horses.  We are very sure that we will have a wonderful show on our return to Springfield in 2018.
 
There will be a couple of changes with the Region XI offsite Championship Shows in 2018, however.  The Region XI Sport Horse Show and Pre-show will again be held in Lake St. Louis, MO to ensure adequate arenas and work area for all the dressage and Sport Horse classes.  The National Equestrian Center, with its many arenas worked well for the show in 2017 and will be an even better fit in 2018.  We hope to host the  Hunter Over Fences portion of the show at a different venue that will provide more work area for our working hunters and lead to a much better show for horses and riders.  A further announcement on that will be made in the new year.
 
Our newest Region XI club, the Working Western Arabian Association, will host the Region XI Working Western Championships in conjunction with the Working Western Celebration in Madison, Wisconsin, September 7-9, 2018.  We sincerely feel that this will be the best way to provide a quality experience for all the show divisions.  Come on out and experience these in 2018.  We wish you all a great 2018 show season as well as a wonderful 2018.

Region 13
 
Region 13 hopes everyone has a wonderful Holiday Season.... 
 
We're looking forward to a great 2018 show at its new home!  The show will be held at the World Equestrian Center in Wilmington, OH.  Take a look at the website and start planning your trip. The dates are June 21-24 with a double judged qualifying pre-show on June 20.
 
The off-site Regional Sport horse show will be held June 14-17 at the Hoosier Horse Park in Edinburgh, IN.
 
Jan Decker (jandecker1@sbcglobal.net) is the show manager for both shows.  Check our website for further updates.

Region 14
 
January 13, 2018 S AHIBA is looking forward to an exciting year in 2018.  To start things off, our annual Awards Banquet will be held Saturday, January 13, starting at 3 pm.  The Banquet will be hosted by members Gordon & Jonel Priddy at their farm, located at 104 Grayson Way, Georgetown, KY 40324.  SAHIBA will provide the meat, we just ask attending members to bring a favorite side dish or dessert.  Once again, we will be awarding the best dish, voted upon by the attendees.  We will also be announcing the High Point Program winners as well as the Volunteer of the Year.  For more information about the banquet, feel free to contact Deneb Thompson at 304-389-5717 or cygnusarabs@yahoo.com.
 
Other exciting announcements for 2018 include changes to our High Point Program, allowing for more competition between High Point Nominees and tiered fees, providing discounts for multiple divisions entered.  We are also happy to announce a new award, the SAHIBA Super Horse.  This awards program will be free to members, but they must nominate their Arabian or Half Arabian.  The Award will go to the horse that accumulates the most points in a minimum of 3 divisions.  (Hunter, Sport Horse US, SHIH for example; or Country, Costume, Show Hack.)  Complete program information will be available on our website, www.SAHIBA.org .
 
SAHIBA is also starting another new Awards program, but this one is for our fabulous volunteers.  Members can earn points for their volunteer work, for everything from attending meetings to working at our shows or obtaining sponsorships.  These points earn chances into a drawing for Year End Awards, drawn at the Awards Banquet for that year.  Again, full program details will be available on the website.
At the beginning of December, SAHIBA teamed up with Windy Meadows in LaGrange, KY and hosted a Ranch Riding and Trail Clinic with judge and trainer Martin Schwartz.  The attendance was great, and everyone had a fun time learning about this new division. We would like to thank Ellie Troutman and Windy Meadows team for hosting such a wonderful clinic.

KAHABA the Kentucky Arabian & Half-Arabian Breeders Alliance...Once again, Arabian and half-Arabian horse owners and enthusiasts have experienced a banner year in the State of Kentucky in 2017, due to the Kentucky Breeders Incentive Program which has not only driven up participation, but also encouraged a wider range of venues and events where Arabian and half-Arabian horses have been presented and showcased to the horse lovers in Kentucky and elsewhere. Several County Fairs and local Open All Breed Horse Shows were able to see the enthusiasm and increased participation by Arabian horse owners, leading them to schedule added classes specifically for Arabian and half-Arabian horses, resulting in higher attendance at their shows, and a general increase in revenue due to attendance by both exhibitors, owners and spectators. Our Membership numbers have risen, as have the numbers of Nominated Stallions to the program, and Eligible Nominated Horses competing for points and recognition, making for a win-win situation all around, increasing not only more involvement for Kentucky owners with expanded venues to visit and compete at across the State, but an opportunity to attract more potential Arabian horse owners. The KAHABA Officers and Board Members have worked diligently to tailor the program to encourage participation by not only the Kentucky-born Arabian and half- Arabian foals, but also to reach out to stallions from other areas that can be included as eligible Nominated Sires, making it attractive to have their foals born in the State of Kentucky, thereby making them eligible to earn the incentives provided by the program. Currently, thirty Stallions are enrolled as Eligible Nominated Sires, and forty-five horses are participating as Nominated horses. As an added benefit, KAHABA has instituted a Production Division for Kentucky foaled Arabian and half-Arabians three years and under, funded solely by enrollment fees from eligible horses, and the participation in those classes has seen significant increases year after year, due to the substantial payout that the program has been able to offer. This program is in its 5th year and currently 15 young horses are enrolled for 2017, with three venues offered during the year for showcasing the young horses. Payout for 2017 totaled $3,600, with Davy Brothers topping the list with four nice young horses, one purebred and three half Arabians earning $1470 for competing at the three host shows, BAHA, SAHIBA and the PMHA Fall Harvest Show. Second High Earner was Jeff Caldwell and Carl Malicote's promising chestnut, purebred Arabian gelding Kentucky Chrome ARA, taking home $810. Thanks to the enthusiasm and involvement of our Members from across the State, Arabian and half-Arabian horses have been presented to the public at events such as Breyerfest, Equine Affair and the National 4H Judging Contest. Hundreds, if not as close to a sure thing as you'll get at the Keeneland me thousands of horse-loving children and adults have been treated to an exhibition of the various and exciting ways to enjoy owning an Arabian horse. Whether it is just for the sheer pleasure of admiring living art, or the diversity of riding a horse capable of the versatility of carrying both English and Western tack, competing over fences, the precision of dressage, the thrill of Ranch Riding, the elegance of the English disciplines, the smooth balance of the Western horse, or simply enjoying the many trail venues the State of Kentucky has to offer, the Arabian horses are suited for the task. The Arabian racehorse was a drawing card that the curious showed up to cheer on at the Keeneland meet, and we have Members that participate in Distance Riding Events both in and out of the State. Lastly, the KBIF non-Thoroughbred program has seen a presence by Arabian and half-Arabian owners through KAHABA in innovative and industry-shaping events such as the KEEP Conference last October, where the future of the Kentucky Horse Industry was brought into focus. Both National and Regional Arabian Conferences have expressed an interest in the Kentucky program, as an industry model for expanding activities within the breed. Several of our Members strive to showcase their Arabians and half-Arabians at may venues around the State, earning points as they go. One such dedicated exhibitor is Katie Lauer with her nominated Half-Arabian mare, Written In The Stars (Izzie) who tops the point accumulation for 2017 with 36 points, earned for participation, Bonus classes and Hi Point earnings. Katie competes in Halter, Hunter under saddle, Dressage and Trail. We as Arabian and half-Arabian owners and Board Members of KAHABA, are extremely encouraged that due to the KBIF program, the Arabian horse will continue to make an impact on the Kentucky Horse Industry. Consider joining us as we step into 2018....on January 28, along with other exciting events to be announced, we will host our first meeting of the year at Ellie & Randy Troutman's Windy Meadows Farm in LaGrange, KY and a Power Point informative presentation detailing how you too can get involved in the lucrative KAHABA program.
