It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

I own two horses. In the spring and summer, I ride every day. Winter is more difficult. This time of year is, however, a great time to plan for spring and summer activities. It is time to set some horsemanship goals.

Twelve years ago, as a novice adult rider, I would have never considered “showing” a horse. I am not a competitive person. One day, Mr. Dwane Haskell taught me that showing a horse is a great way to get it trained. It was with his encouragement that I started to show my horse in the Panorama Horse Show Circuit. I have shown my horse every year since that time. I have gone from being mortified at the thought of jumping a one-foot jump to showing my mare in a reining class … successfully.

Panorama Horse Show Circuit was organized in Redmond, Utah, on Jan. 15, 1989, by a small group of people dedicated to providing an open horse show circuit to the Central Utah area. It is a small association patterned after the larger ones. Entry fees and memberships are very affordable. Members and exhibitors are friendly and helpful. The Open Horse Shows are held in the spring and summer months. These shows are open to any breed of horse, and exhibitors need not be members to participate. Halter, Western pleasure, trail, reining and speed events are the basic classes with age and experience categories within those classes.

r

This season, the shows will be held in Fillmore, Mt. Pleasant, Goshen and Springville. A Stallion Service Auction is held in February or March every year (March 5 this year). The driving goal of this auction is “to help promote local stallions and breeding programs.” A Performance and Halter futurity is held at the end of the show season to further promote and showcase the “get” from the Stallion Service Auction.

r

Panorama’s president-elect this year is Brandon Nusink. In his first message as president, he said, “I hope everyone can set some goals and work towards them. I am looking forward to a great 2016 show season. We are trying some new things this year. We are hosting a clinic in hopes to help everyone improve. My goal as president this year is to help the club have a fantastic year.”

r

I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience for myself and my horses by participating in this organization. The opportunities that it gives me to handle my horse with a purpose and a goal in mind. This year my goal is to practice consistent sliding stops!

A Lighthouse Awaits in Our Backyard

Did you know that landlocked Spanish Fork has a lighthouse? Yes, it does. It is a monument to the first Icelandic emigrants to the United States, who settled in Spanish Fork. Between 1855 and 1914, 410 Icelanders immigrated to Utah.
