Buna show in question please vote

Hey everyone this is Les, Tasha and I wanted to thank everyone for a great turnout and barrel race despite the power outage. Also a very big thanks to my two great ladies Twila LaBuff and Holly Holly Riley Hicks for the loaner generators during said outage. Also a huge thanks to Gina Moss Worthy and her husband Ronnie for helping out with the arena.
I know we were able to speak with many of you about the upcoming Buna, Tx. Show and the possibilities of canceling it and possible c/o sanctioning the Benefit on the same day in Magnolia, Tx. so that our members could still get their points, show their support and also run for the added money. These option were considered to be the best option as numerous of our members were expressing interest in running at the Benefit, thus possible cutting our turnout at Buna, and resulting in a loss in year end award money.
As with any decision its best to look at all points of view, so I am asking all of our members to help us with any positive options to make our district thrive and also pay respects to a fellow horse family.

So with all of the above I would like to have our members vote on one of 3 options:
1) Cancel the show (no make up date, due to possible low turn-out/ loss of year end prize money).
2) C/o sanction the show with the Benefit, (points and prize money, NO COST TO NBHATX 26).
3) Still have the show.

If you could just please leave comment to be the numbered choice that you and your family want. For those that you know that do not have a facebook account please help spread the word that they can text or call Tasha with their choice. 281-961-1082 she does have class Monday nights so please leave a message if you call and don't get her.
Thanks for all you time and attention to this matter and again thanks for a great show at liberty, tx.

Breaking News Please Share!!

ATTENTION EVERYONE WHO WAS AT THE LIBERTY SHOW AUGUST 2: A member just contacted me with news that their horse contracted a bacterial infection at some point in the last 7 to 10 days. There is no way of knowing if the infection was passed from another horse or place. The only place they have visited recently was the barrel race at liberty. The symptoms started off with the mare appearing sore and having trouble walking almost like she pulled a muscle. Later that night she wouldn't eat. Upon the first vet visit all tests including blood work showed everything was fine. Two days later the owner returned to the vet due to lack of improvement and 2 huge buckets of fluid were removed from her lungs. The fluid was tested and confirmed to be a bacterial infection and the mare is struggling to stay alive right now. If your horse is displaying any of these symptoms contact your vet immediately as well as have them contact Waller Equine for more information. Waller has stated that sometimes these symptoms take anywhere from 7 to 10 days to start appearing and then advance rapidly. Some horses might even be silent carriers and display no symptoms at all. Please feel free to contact me privately or publicly if you have any questions or if your horse has also had symptoms.

Immediate News - April 12th show will start at 1:30 due to member meeting

Good morning everyone! 5 days left to go! Cant wait to hand out these pretty buckles! Remember we are having exhibitions on Friday night as well as Saturday morning. Due to desperate need for a member meeting the race will start at 1:30 instead of 1pm. Some of you have read the recent post by District 30 that they have moved on to create their own production and are no longer affiliated with NBHA. I wish them all the success with their future endeavors and I am sure they will be wonderful events. With this happening 4 months into the season their district has been handed to us by the state director to help those members wishing to gain points the option to do so. We are the only close district that they could compete in and not lose points. I know that everyone will welcome these members with open arms. Comment freely but please remember to keep it clean as youngsters do follow our page. Any and all suggestions for the integration of the districts is welcomed. Can't wait to see yall Saturday please drive safe.
