Area VII Young Riders Fund Raiser

A new fund raiser for Area VII Young Riders started at the YR Benefit Horse Trials in Chehalis this year! Sharon Coombe, Mary Kay Independent Consultant has started a yearlong fund raiser running from 8/7/2014 to 8/7/2015 by donating 15% of her sales that are generated by Young Riders and any connections or referrals from Young Riders!

Her presence at the horse trials was well received and sales for that weekend were a good start to what is going to be an amazing opportunity for the Young Riders program. But the horse trials were just a small start!

To make the most out of this opportunity, we need anyone and everyone to contact Sharon Coombe, mention Young Riders and host a party inviting all of your students, barn mates, friends, family and anyone you know. She is willing and able to travel all over Area VII to help raise as much money as possible! Once you become a customer, you can shop as much as you like on her private website for yourself, holiday gifts, birthdays etc… All purchases for the whole year count towards the fund raiser! And anyone who attends a party as a guest can host their own party inviting even more people to join in and help raise money for Area VII Young Riders. All anyone has to do is make sure they mention Young Riders when they contact Sharon!!!

Just remember, Mary Kay is not just make-up, but skin care, body care and even a men’s line! Check out her website to see for yourself at

To set up your event and to help you with any questionsyou can call Sharon Coombe at 253-569-8528 or send her an email at

Last year two riders from our area went to NAJYRC. This coming year it looks like we might have a full team that qualifies! Young Riders would also like to be able to host more clinics, camps and educational activities for ALL members at ALL levels, but to do this we need your help!

****If you already have a Mary Kay Consultant that is currently taking care of you, Sharon Coombe can sell to you at parties only*****

Area VI Activities

Hello Area VII

My name is Sue and I am organizing some great upcoming clinics in Area VI that I wanted you all to know about.

First one is “The Camelot Classic” or more simply out, “how to ride a full three day”.  This is on September 13-14.  This will be held at Camelot Equestrian Park outside of Chico, CA.  As a lower level rider who aspires to this I convinced Val Owens and Wendy Wergles to help me put this on.  My flyer is attached, and it gives you much more information.

Second, Lucinda Green returns to CA. I’m bringing her October 10-11 to Camelot Equestrian Park then October 12-13she goes to Shepherd Ranch for 2 more days.  I have a discounted fee for her right now of $350 until 9/15, then it will be $420.  Flyer is attached.

Third, and final for 2014 is Mary King clinic.  She will be at the Fresno county horse park on November 17-18, the Monday and Tuesday after their last event of the year.  Cost is $420.  I do not have a flyer yet.

Could you add to your area newsletter or in some form announce to your area?  If you have any further questions please ask!  I’m simply trying to bring the best clinics possible to California!!!

Let me know if you have any other questions!
