Hey all!

Can anyone help out Chiaraluna foreign exchange student from Italy?

She is traveling to the US in August to share her culture and learn about ours, but she needs a host family to welcome her first. She has her own spending money and health insurance, she just needs a seat at the table and permanent place in your heart! Chiaraluna is 16 and she says,
“Dear future host family, first of all I introduce myself: I'm Chiaraluna and I'm sixteen years old, I live with my family composed by: my mum, my dad and my two sisters. In free time I like going to the gym, hanging out with my friends, going to the shopping center and going to watch a movie. I also like reading books ( when I have time I read very much), listening to music and I like cooking for my family. In the weekend my family and I sometimes go to a restaurant for dinner. One of my biggest passions are HORSES. Since I was a child I've practiced sports. I tried many sports like: dancing, swimming, skiing ( when I was on mountain Holiday with family) and even archery! But my favorite still remains horse riding. I can only say thanks to my lovely parents who are giving me the opportunity to live all this and say thanks to all U.S.A. host families who are able to host with enthusiasm and big heart guys and girls, opening their houses as real families!”
My own family has hosted and I hope someone here can experience the love and fun we have over the years. Please message me if you're interested in hosting Chiaraluna.
Join us tomorrow for our first show of the Series. We are adding a PARENTS LEAD LINE right after the Kids Lead Line. Class 19A. $10 entry fee. Lead your parent around the ring and give them the thrill of
horseback riding. See Flo Anne in the Show

In addition, she works with various athletes from youth to professionals in sports ranging from volleyball to drag racing.

Please join us at 6:30 for a light meal (sub sandwiches, chips, and cookies). Dr. Eggleston will speak from 7-8 p.m. and will be available for questions afterward.

The event is free for MISHO members and $5.00 for nonmembers. Membership forms will be available that evening. All are welcome--feel free to bring a guest.The seminar will be in Fellowship Hall at the rear of St. Paul UCC at 125 East Dee Street, Lebanon, IL (across from Subway).

Yesterday was derby day! Obora's Andre and Maddie took second in the USHJA Hunter Derby with a combined score of 173. Heaven Only Knew and Ella also took home seventh in the Handy Hunter Challenge! What a fun day🤗
Thank you to Kris Cheyne and Ash Duda for the help!


Malibu Barbie aka Barbie is a 14yr old beautiful palomino mare, with a permanent card at 14.1. Barbie has many wins in the Children’s Hunter Pony division. Easy prep, big step, auto changes, good jump, will get a piece of the hack. Easy enough for a good riding kid to move from x-rails up. Sadly her current kid has outgrown and Barbie is looking for her next. Available for lease, please PM for more details.
