New Business:

2015 Show Schedule

Help-The club is looking for help for all 2015 shows.  Contact Barb or Cindy to get hours scheduled.

April Show-Becky Ruehle will be the photographer.  Stalls will cost $60.  Camping is $30 per night with or without electricity.  Limited 50amp spots available in parking lot.  More spots available on Willow Island based on weather conditions.  We will be using Pavilion I with the heat.  Saturday is a 4 judge POR & Sunday is a 2 judge youth/amateur show.  Exhibitor party on Saturday night.

August Show-Stalls will cost $75. (No doubling up weanlings.)  PPS horses arriving early will have to pay extra stalling fees.  WPHC will have to have members help with parking due to limited number of spots.  Classes will be held Friday night & PPS classes will be held Saturday evening.  A PPS/WPHC co-sponsored exhibitor party will be Saturday night.  

Stall Concerns-There is some concern with Madison stalls due to some open slats in the back.  This could become an issue for the futurity babies.  The facility does have some plexi-glass boards that the club will reserve for the weanlings to use to give them a solid stall.     

Zone Show & WPHC Points-Zone Show is moving to September 26th & 27th in Cedar Rapids, IA.  Barb asked if we should approve the Zone Show for WPHC points.  Not a lot of feedback was given either way.

APHA Rule Proposals-Cindy presented the rule change proposals they will be voting on at convention & asked everyone to give her their input.

“Baby Auction”-Darrel Honnold proposed that we consider holding an auction for the babies sired by stallions sold in the WI SSA as a way of supporting the stallion owners.  Sale would have no consignment or passout fee but a 15% commission would be collected on horses sold.  Those sold are then eligible the next year for special yearling halter, longeline & in had trail classes.

Social Media-Sandi presented some fun facts about the growth of the WPHC Facebook page over the course of the past month while the SSA was being strongly promoted.  All members are encouraged to use the Facebook page & website.  


Meeting adjourned at 1:48pm by President Barb Brunner.   

Respectfully submitted,

Amy Frank

WPHC Secretary
