July 2020 Queen’s Message
Happy July Everyone!
I hope all of you have been staying cool during the July heat we have been having. I also hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July with your family, friends, and favorite equines. I was able to spend the holiday with my family at the lake. Whether you were at the lake, spending time with your horses, or just taking a day to relax, I hope you all had a wonderful Independence Day.
It has been so exciting to be out and about at shows again. Some of the court and I were at the Midstate NorthStar WSCA show a few weeks ago at Northwest Saddle Club arena. It was so much fun seeing each other again and getting to show our horses. We loved seeing everyone’s smiling faces and being able to represent WSCA during the royalty rides. The court and I have been out at as many shows as we can so far and look forward to showing more the rest of this summer. The girls and I are so excited that they officially announced we get to have another year on the court. We are hoping that next year we will get to do everything that we were not able to do this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic such as host our royalty show, represent WSCA at the MN Horse Expo, and host our royalty clinic.
My saddle club, the Red River Riders in Breckenridge, MN just had our 2-day WSCA show. It was great to be able to see a lot of our members and other friends compete again. My saddle club has supported me so much through my journey as Queen and I am so grateful to be part of such a wonderful and supportive group of people. My niece was able to come up and do leadline with “her” horse. Miss Keisha’s favorite class is leadline as she loves her little rider.
It was great to be able to have our show with the guidelines from the WSCA Re-Open Toolkit. I encourage clubs to review the toolkit on the WSCA website before their shows are held as it is a changing document and will be kept updated online regarding changes as they happen throughout the summer. I look forward to seeing so many more of your smiling faces at the open shows this summer.
Until next time, God Bless,
