Member Memories - Ken Hartley

ken hartley"I started cutting in 1969 in the Ranch Cutting in the B.C. Ranch Cutting Horse Ass’n. of which I was one of the original directors.  I spent years at the coast riding and helping people learn how to ride a cutting horse. We had an indoor arena and when cows weren’t available we worked goats. We also went to an arena owned by the local auction mart where we worked cows 2 days a week with as many as 15 riders most days."

"I have been lucky enough to win many year-end awards.  In the BCCA I won the 1986 Novice Rider award. In 2007 I won the Open Champion on Sonitas Colonel Pep and in 2010 I won the Open Championship on San Taris Dual Oak (Farrah). This mare was the best horse I have owned and ridden not only in the cutting pen but outside as well. I do feel there is no better feeling than to ride a cutting horse, and I have had about 40 years of doing that. I think the best advice is to do your best and don’t forget to have fun!"

25th Annual Susan Stewart Memorial Clinic

susan stewart memorial

This year was our 25th year holding the clinic during which time we had good weather, rain, cold and snow. It is three days of cattle work, good food and friendships.

The clinic was originally organized by Bob & Mary Lynn Zirnhelt and it has always been held at their ranch. We have an average of 20 entrants and over the years this totals around 500 riders.

Susan is June Hartley’s daughter who passed away in 1990 in a car accident. We asked for donations rather than flowers which we put into a scholarship fund in her name. Under the BCCHA we held the annual clinic to increase the funds which we use for scholarships for further education. Applicants may also use the scholarship to attend a clinic. The fund pays out about $2000/year, most applicants have been members’ family or a relative.

There are lots of good memories from the clinics and while it is a learning experience for all, we always stress having fun!
