are with you. Mother Nature has been kinder to some this year, but it seems we've all had to deal with unusual circumstances over

is NOT responsible for any Youth participating in this activity.
This will be an exciting show year! We look forward to seeing you
at the shows!
After much discussion with the Club Executive Board, it is with heavy hearts we decided to cancel the
Area VI SP&MHBA Club Show #1 on August 29-30. Because of rising COVID-19 cases as well as increased Vesicular Stomatitis Virus cases in Kansas, we felt this was best for the health of the Club,
it's members, exhibitors and horses/ponies.
In anticipation of a better year in 2021, please Save The Dates for the Area VI SP&MHBA Club Shows.
May 8-9, 2021 - Salina, Kansas
June 12-13, 2021 - Salina, Kansas
July 3-4, 2021 - McCook, Nebraska
Best of luck to those exhibiting at AMHR Nationals!
