Fund Raising: Over the course
of the Calendar year 2005, this committe works on fund raising activities in support of the club and its acquisition
of prizes, maintenance of facilities, ribbons etc. This is where we strive to give as much back to the membership
as possible through corporate and personal contributions. Our most successful fundraising efforts are associated
with our Sponsorship Program. This involves the contacting of businesses in the community and surrounding
areas to see if they would be interested in sponsoring one or more of our show divisions. Other activities
including food concessions, bake sales, HHSA water sales and the raffle and silent auction at the Awards Banquet.

HHSA hosts 3 shows during the year. These are held at the Bel Air Equestrian Center. This committee is
responsible for contacting judges, preparing prize lists, ordering ribbons, working in the entry booth, preparing and setting
up jump courses for each ring and arranging food concessions. For each show, we need volunteers to assist in the entry
booth, serve as a gate keeper to one of the three rings operating (1/2 day maximum), jump crew to either set up or breakdown,
grounds clean up after the show - we have to leave it the way we found it!!
