After a week of thinking I have decided that the Harvest Show was TPH’s last show. We will not be running any shows in 2015 or for the foreseeable future. This decision has not been taken lightly but now it is made, there is a great sense of relief. I will of cause continue this week until all the results, especially the AQHA are completed for all our shows this year.
We have had so much fun and learnt so much running our shows. We have met so many new friends and the entire TPH Team is second to none. A better group of people I couldn’t have wished to work with but I will not go through all the names – you know who you are. Thank you for all the work, help and fun times.
The reasons for making this decision are many - too many to list here. There is no such thing as running an easy show and we never expected this when you have so many people involved but there comes a time when you have to say “am I enjoying this” and “is this what people want”. This year was tough but the team mucked in and helped but there were so many that didn’t. My show office girls being sworn at, people leaving shows without paying and riders who think it’s a stupid rule to wear your show hat for prize ceremonies even though the sponsor wanted a picture were just small irritations compared to the treatment we have received from the SQHA and SRHA. Both these organizations have in different ways made it impossible for us to carry on with our shows. I do not want again to be caused the financial and organizational chaos that has occurred this year.
Thank you to all who have supported our shows. Sponsors, owners, riders and friends.
