Board Member

Julie M. Mayer 

My name is Julie Mayer. I have been with the MApHA family for 47 years.
I love the versatility of the Appaloosa, but mainly love the running the barrels and poles horse against horse. This was a game derived by the Nez Pearce Indians, for which the National Appaloosa Horse club recognized.
What makes the MApHA so special? We are one big family! We all laugh together, encourage each other, help each other and have fun together! They must be special for me to be here almost 50 years
