Please remember that it is going to take a village to support these horses and riders. Fund raising efforts must begin immediately. I would like to have a profile of each rider listed above, and any additional riders that declare in the next few days, to post on the Area III website. Also, if you have a fund raiser that will be supporting you, we need the link and information for that event to advertise to the entire Area III.

Emma Vallner’s mother, Jenny Vallner, will be heading up the Area III fund raising efforts. She will act as the Coordinator. It will be up to the riders to organize the fund raising events, but they are to let Jenny know the particulars about all fund raising efforts so that we can advertise and support them.

Jenny’s contact information is 469-231-3224 or

All donation checks will be made payable to Area III Young Riders.

All of the riders listed above will also be on the Area III Young Rider Council, and will be the representatives for the Area III Young Riders this year. I am having banners made for you to take to all shows that you attend, and we will start conference calls next week.

Julie Richards, Leslie Law, Hilda Donahue, Cyndi Kurth, and I are always available to help answer any questions concerning the Young Rider program. Please do not hesitate to reach out to any of us.

Thank you for your support for the Area III Young Rider Program!
