Ontario Reined Cow Horse Association
It is our mission to promote the sport of Reined Cow Horse in Ontario through education, participation, and mentorship.
Hello cowhorse family. First, the bad news. As you’ve probably guessed, we will not be able to hold our May show, and will need to postpone our clinic due to provincial COVID restrictions. We will look to reschedule the clinic as soon as we are able to.
Now the good news. In the middle of all the silliness in the world right now, we would
like to share a happy news story from our little association.
Some of you may not know, but the ORCHA has in the past made charitable donations to try and give back to the community that has supported us so well. 2020 was a different sort of year and we were not able to continue that tradition – we were not able to hold our shows, but had some loyal sponsors still contribute, confident that we would carry on when possible. As we planned what we hope to deliver in 2021, we decided to start the year on a positive note by giving back once again to our community.
On behalf of our membership, the ORCHA has made a $1000 donation to the London Health Sciences Foundation, a hospital that has provided care for several of our members and their families. This foundation is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to strengthening health care available to people across southwestern Ontario, with a mission of excellence in patient care, education and research.
Making the donation on behalf of the ORCHA is lifetime member and past director, Neil Tull. Receiving the cheque is Pamela Taylor, Director, Major Giving, London Health Sciences Foundation.
Looking forward to 2021, and thank you again to everyone who supports our organization.
