Calling on the HON sisterhood…your thoughts and prayers are needed!
Our dear HON sister, Kyna Matula, needs our support!
Kyna, a former art teacher, and horse lover from Rockton, IL, has been battling Non-Hodgkin lymphoma for several years. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is a disease in which cancer cells form in the lymph system, a part of the immune system. Because lymph tissue is found throughout the body, adult non-Hodgkin lymphoma can begin in almost any part of the body and can spread to many other organs and tissues. Kyna has endured years of chemo treatment and now faces a stem cell transplant. She recently got word that a donor match was found, and she will be undergoing the transplant in Chicago in early December, probably Dec 9th. Recovery will be a long process, with Kyna being away from home for months. Kyna is an amazing woman and does not need to see a rambling discussion about her or her health issues on Facebook, but she does need your thoughts and prayers. Whether you know Kyna personally or not, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.
Kyna’s address will be:
University of Chicago Medicine Center for Care and Discovery, 10 East, Kyna Matula, MC 8051, Chicago, IL 60637-1470

The HON Library…Check it Out!
No doubt the chilly temperatures find us all spending more time indoors. Likewise, we’re probably spending more time in front of the television. Why not check out the DVDs that our club has available? Get your “horse fix” and learn something while you’re at it! Our club has a nice variety of DVDs that can be loaned to club members at no charge. There are DVDs from Larry Whitesell for the gaited horse rider, as well as courses on Universal Horsemanship from Dennis Reis. We have “Correcting Problems on the Trail” from Clinton Anderson. There is also a series of DVDs from a former mounted police officer, Scott Hansen, dealing with topics such as Dealing with Dogs on the Trail, Self Defense for the Trail Rider, Making Your Horse Road Safe and Improving your Balance and Feel using a Bareback Pad. Movies are available on loan to club members only. Contact Kim at if you wish to borrow from our HON library. Borrowers will pay postage costs. Borrowers are responsible for returning the DVDs within two weeks. Donated movies are welcomed also! Visit our website “Resources” link to find our Library. Check out the DVDs!

Classifieds (send ads to:, please specify if you want the ad run continuously)
25% of all sales until Dec 31st will go to the Pink Ribbon Ride. I have lots of gift items on my website for that Christmas shopping. Spurs and Bling, It’s a Cowgirl Thing!!!

FOR SALE: Aged Missouri Fox Trotter gelding in need of a new home – Prince is in good health and has many trails left to travel. He is sound, sane, will go out alone, not spooky. A real prince of a horse.

There is no charge for Prince, just looking to see if anyone needs a confidence builder, just want to smell the roses on the trail and of course a good home.

For Sale: 3 bottles of “Premium Garcinia Extract” weight management as touted all over Face Book. I paid $50 a bottle and will sell each for that price, the will include shipping. All bottles are sealed and have an expiration date of Jan.2015. It supports Appetite control, inhibits fat production and it is pure and potent.Calcium, Potassium and chromium are added along with the Garcinia extract. It comes in veggie capsule form. I took the supplement for 3 months and found that it helped metabolize my food. My cholesterol and trigs went down really fast. I did feel full after eating, but note, don’t over eat to begin with, the fullness comes on slowly, it did with me anyway. Unfortunately, I cannot take it any longer, as I have ulcerative colitis, and when that became somewhat active again, this supplement did not set will with me. I do have some food allergies, so I am thinking that was what really was going on. If you buy all three sealed bottles I will sell for a reduced price of: $125.00. That’s a $25 savings plus I will include shipping in that price. What a Deal! Rosemary Tietz call 920-326-3588 or email

Be sure to contact the person organizing the event to stay updated, and if possible, join/decline/maybe the event on Facebook so you have it on your calendar and stay informed. As always, you don’t have to camp to join in one of our camping weekends, dropping in for a day ride or potluck is just fine! Each ride is different, but you can usually plan on groups riding out around 9-10 am and getting together for a pot luck dinner on Saturday around 5-6ish pm. Often there will be other rides and activities going on, such as group movies, campfires, swimming, fish fry, etc, See the event coordinator for details. *NOTE* some events may be found on the “other events” section of our website calendar, if they are not a HON event.
