UMH Ladies Auxiliary
The UMH Ladies Auxiliary (UMH LA) was established in 2006, by a group of
dedicated horse women. The Ladies Auxiliary is a valuable asset to UMH. With
their annual Charity Horse Show in Prestonsburg, KY, their donations to
women’s and children’s charities, and their support for others in crisis, the
Auxiliary members have been a driving force toward UMH’s goal of promoting
mountain horses. If you would like to know more about the Ladies Auxiliary,
please contact Terry Kleier at firstname.lastname@example.org
or if you would like to join the LA,
for an application. LA meetings are held at all UMH National AAA shows.
