Welcome

We are an organization of friends and family that join together for an equine event of sorting.  If you are a horse enthusiast and want to experience an exciting sport then sorting is for you!  If you would like to come out and see what sorting is all about then visit our show schedule page for the next date! 

IMPORTANT UPDATES:

August Letter from our President:

Dear Members:

I am writing to provide you all with a “down the stretch” update of the association.

Finals Ads:  Click here for form.

Now is the time to commence selling ads for the finals book to help pay for your rides and year-end prizes.  The ad fee schedule will be the same as last year.  They are:

  • ¼ page ad                            $40
  • ½ page ad                            $75
  • Full page ad                        $100
  • 2-pages                              $160                      
  • Front Cover                        $350
  • Back Cover                         $250
  • Inside front cover               $200
  • Inside back cover               $200
  • T-Shirt back                        $200
  • T-Shirt Sleeve                    $250

Our goal is to sell $10,000 worth of ads.  The members selling the ads receives 40% of their sales revenue to use toward their rides at finals and the association gets 60% of ad sales  revenue to use to purchase prizes for year-end awards.

The deadline for turning in the ads and money is September 15, 2014.  All ads and money needs to be turned into Laura Crook.   You may send your camera ready art work via email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   or SLTSA c/o Laura Crook, 11851 Parkland Drive, Port Allen, Louisiana 70767.    If you need an ad to be designed check with her and provide her the information and Rhona Reeves will design your ad from a business card or whatever you want done.    Ad forms are on the web-site.   Please NO staples.  Please use paper clips.

2015 Board Election: Now is also the time to start thinking of whom you would like to see on the Board for 2015.  Some of the Board members will be rotating off of the Board and new Board members will need to be elected. 

  • Current Board members are:  Johnie Romero, Charlie Richardson, Robin Free, Lisa Diez, Robert Davis, Wayne McManus, and Bryan Guidry.
  • Board members that have one year left on their term are:  Charlie Richardson, Lisa Diez, and Bryan Guidry.
  • Board members that will rotate off or seek election are:  Johnie Romero, Robin Free, Wayne McManus and Robert Davis.

 

August 2014 Show:

Being that the July show was cancelled the Board has agreed to make the August show a double points show.  The double points are on ride points only. 

Also, as a test, we will have a 2-man Masters Class.  You must be a minimum of 50 years young as of the date of the show.  There is a 5-ride limit with a minimum of 2-rides and all rides are draw rides.  This class will be the 1st class of the day and the books will close at 8:00 AM and ride at 9:00 AM.  There will be no prizes or awards given for this class at year-end.  At this time, this is one time event.  The fee is $26 including cattle charge of $4.

Financial condition:

At the present time the checkbook balance is $15,349 with outstanding accounts payable of $430; thus, a net of $14,919.  This is pretty healthy for this point in the year.  We plan to continue to be good stewards of your money. 

Thank You and I look forward to seeing you all at the next show on August 9, 2014. 

Johnie Romero

 

All shows February thru August are co-sanctioned USTPA shows and count towards the 2014 year.  September and October are also co-sanctioned show but will count towards 2015.
