PRESIDENTS MESSAGE 

Happy New Year to Everyone!

By way of introduction, my name is Maureen Henderson, and I am your new President.

First of all, I would like to thank our outgoing Board members for their services over the past year, and for each of them, for many years. They are our Past President, Denise Howell, Secretary, Nancy Steuck, Board Members Bob Sydnor and Janis Rau. I would like to welcome our new Officers, Vice-President Pat Gibbs and Secretary, Lisa Horning and new board members, Liz Daffner, Judie Lew and Betty Pfiefer. I am excited that some of our members have stepped forward to continue making our organization one that we and our community can be proud of.

As your President, I am hoping to continue the good work this organization has done since it was first formed in 1984. Of Course, the main focus for LBHA has been trails within the Loomis Basin. This is the area in which LBHA has been most active. In today’s world, we need to be more diligent than ever in protecting what we have fought for in the past. Dur-ing the building boom it was important that we stayed informed about new developments, making sure that equestrian easements were placed within their boundaries so that riders would continue to have access to the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Sterling Point and the Lomida Trail are two prime examples of what we fought for. Today, with develop-ment having slowed, we have a newer threat to losing our trails. This is due to the intro-duction of the sport of mountain biking. Due to cutbacks in funding, there is even more demand for existing trail use and we no longer have the luxury of having “equestrian” trails. Now, and in the future, all trails constructed will be “multi-use” trails. The mountain bike clubs are working with the State and County Parks to assist with maintaining trails. We, as equestrians, are going to have to step up to the plate and also offer to have work days with the governing agencies to maintain our trails. It is my goal this year to see if we can’t make that happen. As a group we can have a loud voice about our trails, especially if we are united and show that we can work with the mountain bike groups. So, looking forward to a great 2015.

Please come to our monthly meeting and share your ideas of what you would like to see our Club do. Our new board members have some very good ideas for promoting our or-ganization and would like to have your input. See you at the meeting! (I will be on a pre-planned vacation for our January meeting, however, our Vice-President, Pat Gibbs will pre-side at this meeting.)
