What a GREAT turnout for our 4 Judge Paint-o-Rama in March! What more can you ask for in a horse show, over 600+ entries and beautiful Florida weather.  For our Northern exhibitors I am sure you all enjoyed being able to show outside.  Our first annual FPHC/FPtHA banquet seemed to be a great success.  With over 115 people in attendance we were all able to recognize the accomplishments of all our members.  We would also like to extend a "Thank You" to Cayla Conley and her staff at the Hilton Gardens Inn for making this event special for everyone.  We hope you all had a great time, and please let us know if you would like us to plan a banquet for next year.  Thanks again to our T-shirt sponsor Linda Smit of Painted Willow farms home of Joses Real Deal.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You to all our members who brought donation for the UF Shands Pediatric Cancer group.  Your generosity will surely put smiles on the faces of many children.
