S.N.E.H.A. Special Awards

we are taking nominations for our special awards that we announced at the Year end Banquet. If you want to nominate someone please email jackip17@aol.com.

The Skip Van Patten Good Sportsmanship Award:
This award is given in memory of a gentleman who was a much loved member of our club. Both riders and non-riders are eligible for this award. Skip was at every horse show cheering on his wife, her friends and everyone else that went into the ring or on the trail course. Skip had a talent for knowing the right thing to say to an exhibitor who needed cheering up. Skip always had a smile for everyone and was loved and admired by the people who were fortunate enough to have known him. Always quick to offer a heling hand and words of encouragement to whoever needed it. Recipients of this award embody their same qualities that made Skip the wonderful man he was.

The Ed Clark Humanitarian Award:
This award is given each year to a non-rider who makes a significant contribution to our club. Ed was a gentleman, who did non ride, but he was an integral part of our club and the hose world in general. He offered his facilities for our shows and was always on the grounds making sure everything ran smoothly and the exhibitors were happy. At our monthly meetings Ed was quick to volunteer for whatever needed to be done, offered suggestions, and was the voice of reason when stalemates occurred. Ed loved life and loved people. Ed was never happier then when he was in the middle of the fun and activity.

CCBA Collaboration

SNEHA is in collaboration with the Connecticut Color Breed Association for their September 26th show at the Glastonbury Hunt Club.

SNEHA Members can earn points for year-end with SNEHA at CCBAs show on September 26th. They will have a separate entry form provided for SNEHA members, based on their class list, then ask members what classes and divisions shown with SNEHA exhibitors would like to carry over their points from the September 26th show.

Due to not all classes matching up in qualifications some divisions and classes cannot gain points for this collaboration. This includes: Miniature Division, New Team Division, Open Hunter Division, Hunt Seat Division, Registered Quarter Horse Halter, SNEHA Open Pleasure, SNEHA Open Walk/Trot Pleasure, SNEHA Team Classic Pleasure, and Mystery Class.

The CCBA has classes open to non-colorbreed horses so everyone is welcome to show.

you can send any questions about the CCBA Collaboration threw this website’s contact us page or check our Facebook.

Here is their class list!
