About being a Member of BHBFTA

February 18, 2010

This information is included with the Registration found here.  It is written by the club’s Show Chairman (Robynn Gabel).

“First and foremost your membership gives you a discount to the ever growing BHBFTA Fox Trotter Show.   A new location this year’s BHBFTA Show in Thermopolis, WY affords you a chance for more Performance classes, a new Versatility Pleasure category, a BHBFTA All Around High Point winner, and the ever favorite Natural Trail course for our trail riders. Also you will have a chance to participate in the workshop being presented Thursday morning on Ranch Horse Cutting and Working Cow before the show starts.

Even if you are not a show person, this show gives you an opportunity to meet with other Missouri Fox Trotter owners, search out answers to questions, search for breeders and sales, watch fine Fox Trotters perform and meet up with old friends. In between show events Thermopolis has a cornucopia of activities including the Thermopolis Dinosaur Museum, historical landmarks and the famous Mineral Hot Pools for swimming, playing and soaking.

Being a member of this affiliate gives you access to the Association website with information on club activities. If you are a breeder or need to sell and wish to advertise this website is just another place you can do that as part of your membership. The website gives updates and current information on other clubs and upcoming trail rides including Wyoming’s and Montana’s yearly Fall Gather.  A bi-yearly update in the Journal, as well as club news is also a membership perk giving you information on what is going on in not only Wyoming but in the breed.

It is also a goal of this Association to ever promote this intelligent, hard working, family oriented breed. There are so many Fox Trotter owners in Wyoming that are part of the National Association, but it is the local state club that can get you in touch with others with the same needs as you.

We strive to keep membership dues low in this time of economic struggle, but also to keep in step for the value you will receive. We are working towards getting more for the membership such as organizing a Stallion Handbook, History of the Breed in Wyoming, better communication and membership discounts.”
