To The Editor:
The St. Lawrence Valley Horsemens Association has had two successful shows with many new faces and lots of walk-trot riders who are the riders of the future. We wish to thank our sponsors, Mort Backus & Sons, Sunny Brook Farm and Lynette Thompson Insurance.
Without volunteers to help, we would be unable to have shows. This season we have been blessed with many stepping forward to help when we needed help. We want to especially thank the following: Rick Yelle and Aurora Murray for being ring masters, Riley Green and Brenda Wilson for carrying the flag, and Jason Black for loaning us music. We would also like to thank Bruce Green, Greg LaRose, Franny Baxter, Mary Fonda, Tom Sharpstene and Dee Cook, who are always there.
We sanction the classes at the Gouverneur and St. Lawrence County Fair Open Horse Show Aug. 4. Members who attend can count their points for our end-of-year awards. The next open show is Aug. 10 at our show grounds. We hope to see lots of horses, riders and spectators.
