President’s Message

Hello IPHA Membership!

Looking forward to an exciting Show Season in 2023!

As your returning president for 2023, I want to thank the Officers and Board of Directors for their service in 2022. Thanks also to the Show Managers, Show Help, Office Help and Club Membership for making our shows a success.

2022 Year End Awards will be available for pick up at the April 14-16 Gordyville Show. Our Youth Club will also be holding their fantastic Silent Auction Fundraiser that weekend at the show.

As always, if you have questions, feedback or input, please don't hesitate to reach out to me, one of the Officers or your Area Director. Updated contact information for the 2023 slate of officers and directors has been posted on the website.

Can’t wait to see you all at the first show in April – Spring will be here before you know it!!

Shelly Prehoda
2023 IPHA President


The upcoming show at 4 Rocks Arena (Delavan/Hopedale) on June 17th has been canceled. Due to the large number of our core exhibitors attending the Pinto World Show, the IPHA has made the decision to not hold the show scheduled on this date. The July 8th show has NOT been canceled, though we will be looking at the number of stalls reserved if it comes down to making that decision.




IPHA Breeders Futurity
As we enter our 53rd year for the stallion service sale and Futurity, we have added some new classes as well as new ways to enter. Please take a moment to visit the futurity website, look at the stallions available, read the rules on how to be a part of this great program paying out over $30,000, and review the list of eligible stallions! We look forward to seeing you in September!

Thank you, Carri Hansen, Futurity Committee
