Hungry, Not Hangry
We get it--horse showing is hard work. Whether you're in the saddle or out of it, it's easy to work up an appetite. That's why we've invited Chef Charmaigne for the duration of both our "A" shows.
News Highlights - November 2020
WTHJA is proud to be a sponsor of the Equestrian Foundation Aid, which provides financial support for equestrians of all walks of life who have experienced a life-changing or life-threatening health crises and require assistance for basic living or rehab expenses.

Letter from the WTHJA President
Greetings WTHJA Members and Friends,
As summer winds down, I would like to take a moment to update you on the happenings within WTHJA. While we were sadly compelled to cancel all of our spring shows, we are eagerly preparing for 3 upcoming events:
• October 31 Fall Schooling Show
• November 5 - 8 Harvest Time (National rated)
• November 12 - 15 Memphis Charity (National rated)
The WTHJA Board made the decision to forego year end awards for 2020 due to the lack of shows that would constitute a full year. Also, in accordance with our desire to adhere to the best public health and safety efforts, we will NOT be hosting a year end dinner. We hope all of these efforts will culminate in our ability to host a full show year in 2021 with a year end banquet in January of 2022.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your continued support of WTHJA.
Susan Davidoff, WTHJA President
