2017 Miniature Horse World July E-Magazine - Page 4

editor’s notes by Melissa Powell S ummer is here and for me it comes with busy days filled to the brim with barn chores and re-organizing. My plan is to slowly upgrade with new fans (the correct outdoor ones) stall mats (which I’ve not used before) and possibly a new wooden floor for my feed room. Finally I’ll cross off a few items on my “someday I’ll have” list. The barn certainly looks bet- ter and the horses seem to approve. You’ll notice two new offerings in MHW too, a feature page to honor someone (horse or person) whose life has touched or influenced yours. This can be in honor of them passing or just in fond remembrance. It’s titled In Memoriam. Also new in this issue is the feature, The Miniature We’d Love to Own. This special page introduces readers to the character Miniatures we all have in our barns, that special, once in a lifetime, heart horse that deserves his own time in the spotlight. All are welcomed to submit their own special horse -Email: Editor@amha.org for avail- ability. The AMHA World Show is on the ho- rizon and with it the excitement of view- ing the history making performances of some of the most talented Miniatures in the world. The show will be webcast this year from the vintage, coliseum- where horse shows and rodeos have been held since the 1930’s. Still in the Will Rogers facility but a different venue and feel for certain. If you can’t attend, be sure to log in and watch at www.amha.org The show runs August 25 through September 2, 2017. Enjoy this good old summertime! 2 Miniature Horse World J U LY 2 0 1 7 About the cover: From World Grand Champion to World’s Best Friend - Cruze and LM Idols Burton Hawk. Thank you Kelly Campbell for such a wonderful photo. Danielle Hill Training Center W e believe in putting the horse first. After all, that is why we are here and able to do what we do. These horses are our working partners. We promise to put the animal’s best interest before ours. While ribbons and trophies are wonderful, they cannot re- place the enjoyment of the animal itself. Therefore they are our first priority at all times. AS always my team is the heart of this program, my horses are the soul. We specialize in matching client to equine for the perfect partnership. Our clientele is compromised of both amateur and youth, with hundreds of World Champion and Na- tional Champion wins to their credit. Visit us in picturesque Delaware and we will treat you to a tour of our state of the art training and boarding facility! Best of luck in 2017 and beyond! We’ll see you at the horse shows! www.daniellehilltrainingcenter.com
