This year is the quarter century mark for the Southwest Peruvian Horse Club, the oldest Peruvian Horse Club in Texas. Over the years the Southwest club has been one of the strongest, most active clubs in the breed. At one time the gelding stakes class had purses of $20,000 with the show being the largest in the country. Southwest club has had some incredible board members over the years that have made it successful. Unfortunately these board members have not had new energetic people stepping up to the plate to take over.

The last few years the Southwest board has struggled along with Louis Alveraz doing most of the work. He has asked me to please replace him with a new fresh board member as he is burned out. Also Dick Kirby a long time member has ask to be replaced because his wife, Roberta Kirby has had serious health problems and is facing a long recovery time. Thanks from all of the members for the time Louis and Dick has given to the club and the quick return of good health for Roberta.

Dick Sisson and Tonya Egger have been appointed to fill the vacant positions, with Janelle Dapello, Ray Wood and I completing the board. In September ? the ballots will go out for the Southwest election. The 2 spots occupied by Dick and Tonya will be up for reelection. If you are interested in a seat on the board, send your nomination to ?

This year’s 25th Southwest Show will be held in conjunction with the Camino Real Show, with Lone Star being a supporting sponsor. We hope that everyone will bring horses, to make this “Texas Roundup” the biggest show of the year. A big THANK YOU! For Alice Wolf and the Camino Real board is due for helping make this show possible. Although the Lone Star Club will not have a show this year, the board has pledged its support of the Texas Roundup with it’s money and time spent by it’s board members to help make the show a success.

I can’t say this any better than Lyndon Wright in his Lone Star president’s letter:

As we look forward to the coming months we seek the input of all
of our members. Would you like to have a Spring show? Where and
when? Would you like to have a trail ride? How about schooling
show or clinic? Give us your thoughts. Also, please think about
the members that you would like to see serving on the Board. Call
me or any other Board member to nominate someone. We will conduct
an election by mail before the end of the year.

A club is only as strong as its membership, support Southwest with classes sponsorships for the show, ideas, and volunteering your time.

Be part of the solution, not part of the problem.

Cheryl Aldrich
President
