President's Perspective - July, 2014

Friday, August 1, 2014 - 8:32am

 

Dear Pyramid Society Members and Egyptian Arabian Enthusiasts:

I trust all of you are enjoying your summer with your horses; whether it be at other shows, trail or endurance riding, or simply watching them grazing in the pastures. They are great companions - and an important part of our lives.
 
I wish to take this special opportunity to thank all members who responded to our annual Membership and Egyptian Event Survey. Although an excellent statistical response rate, it would have been wonderful to have heard from every single one of you as board decisions will be predicated on your feedback.
 
Secondly, I also want to thank you for your tremendous support of this year’s Tribute to Gleannloch Farms. No farm has left a stronger legacy, and it was extremely rewarding to see all our members and attendees embrace every aspect of this project. From the memories shared in the “Gleannloch Farms: The Legend and the Legacy,” to Heritage pages in the Show Program, to your magnanimous support of our Silent and Showcase Auctions, your levels of support validated their relevance to our global Straight Egyptian community. Thank you again for making this “once in a lifetime” opportunity so meaningful as well as financially successful. If you have not yet purchased the Gleannloch Tribute book, you may still do so! In addition to recounting the Marshalls' lives, it is an excellent reference and research tool. Click here to order online, or call the office at 859-231-0771.
 
And finally, I want to call your attention to the "Save the Date" in this newsletter for our first Regional Educational Workshop, to be held September 27 in Albuquerque and hosted by our New Mexico members. This one-day format provides members and guests the opportunity to come together to talk horses, to see horses and to simply enjoy each other’s company in this “Land of Enchantment.” In addition to our National Breeders’ Conferences, the goal, going forward, is for our members to have this basic template for hosting one-day activities in several parts of the country. Special thanks to our Education Committee and our members in New Mexico for making this a reality. I hope to see you there.
 
It is a privilege to serve as your President, and please feel free to contact me with your questions or suggestions.

Sincerely,

Bob Miars

President

The Pyramid Society
