Welcome Ladies

Welcome to a new edition of “Barn Talk” the blog for Mom’s Daughters and Horses. My name is Samantha and I am the President of MDH.

Let me tell you a little about me and then we can move onto more exciting things. I am 37 years old I don’t have a daughter but I am someone’s daughter so I fit right in with this group. Just wanted to let you know you don’t have to be a mom to be in our club you just have to love horses that is all. I own 2 of the critters myself, Tug is a 10 year old Appaloosa gelding, and if you have seen him you are probably thinking Appaloosa? Yes he is an Appaloosa he just forgot to grow his spots haha. Mercedes is a 9 year old Polish Arabian mare I have owned both of them approximately 6 ½ years and they are my babies. I currently also am mom to a 6 year old Sheltie named Emma and we all live in the Spokane Valley.

This club is full of wonderful ladies and we all come from different areas, ranging as far north as Newport, Wa to as far South as Plummer, Id. And everyone has different disciplines they do but most everyone is also a trail rider. We as a club meet once a month during the off riding season and during the summer we meet every other month as everyone is pretty busy doing things with their horses and families. We have had one trail ride and are looking forward to having more in the near future. Next year we hope to get together a few more trail rides and maybe a play day. I look forward to helping bring this club along as it grows and is able to put on more club events and become a bigger part of the community.

To end this so I don’t bore you too much with my chatter I wanted to let everyone know that there are 2 shows this coming weekend: one is The Arab Community Show at Spur of the Moment in Deer Park and is open to anyone who would like to attend for more information please call 509-935-8911 or go to Next is a schooling show at Lady Raven Stables for more information please call 509-466-6075, 509-953-4511, or 509-590-8410.

Thank you all and if you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me or one of the board members and they would be happy to answer them for you.
