Message from WCHA President Robin Klover
I’d like to introduce myself and family to you whom I have not had the opportunity to meet. My name is Robin Klover; this is my wife Lynn, daughter Lauren and two sons Brendan and Ashton. I’m honored to serve as your President of the World Conformation Horse Association. I grew up in the small college town of Manhattan Kansas, raising and showing halter horses since my early teenage years. I graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in Animal Science and have 2 years towards a master’s degree in Equine Nutrition with an emphasis on Equine Reproduction and Physiology. I moved to Colorado in 1991 working as a mobile Equine Reproduction Consultant, managing various breeding farm programs, providing mare & stallion management, artificial insemination and embryo transfer services. In a separate profession I was fortunate to have the opportunity of working for, and later owning Reservoirs Environmental, Inc., an environmental laboratory in Denver, Colorado. Over the years, my admiration for the conformation of the Halter Horse has only intensified by continuing to raise and show horses in various futurities and horse shows across the country.My wife has also developed a similar passion for the Equine Industry- in her spare time when she is not taking care of our children, she enjoys spending time with her miniature donkeys. Lauren recently joined the civilian world after serving for 10 years in the US Air Force; Brendan is the athlete of the family playing football, basketball and Lacrosse; and Ashton, our youngest, loves karate, technology and music.As your president, I will work to promote the founding mission of the World Conformation Horse Association: to unite for the purpose of stimulating interest in and competitive opportunities for enthusiasts of the conformation horse, while protecting the integrity of the horse through responsible stewardship. I am excited about the future of the WCHA and look forward to serving our membership in the coming year.
