We had a wonderful day for our first show of 2015 with lots of sunshine and fun.
We had lots of great horses for halter and many skilled exhibitors for showmanship. This year we are going to offer a Halter championship trophy to the exhibitor who earns the most points at halter.
We always have wonderful exhibitors, but these two just about overdosed us on cuteness!
The trail classes are always challenging and we had lots of really good performances.
English or western trail classes show whether or not their is trust between the horse and rider.
We saw some new faces in our English classes.
Baby hunter had some very nice rides.
Our High Point Champions at the end of the day were Tarlyn Krause Ch, and Kristy Hanson Res., for WTC and Sam Fitzsimmons Ch and Liz Endsley Res. in WT.
After the strangest spring in all the 38 years we have been having our shows where we had three shows our of four cancelled due to rain, we decided to have a June show by popular demand. Although it was a bit warm, we all enjoyed the day and there were some really excellent rides~!
As usual our Western classes were quite large and had to be split.
We had lots of really nice horses and riders participating and it was especially nice to have some "old timers" like Tommy and Diane Whitson and Angie William and Karen Freeman showing. We actually had three exhibitors showing that showed with us in Lewisville in the 70's!
Exhibitors in Trail had to "kiss our ass" and most of the horses complied happily!
Terrie and Snippy had a wonderful day winning overall high point and really looking good all day.
Kyla won a second and two thirds on Khazzy and she has only ridden him twice.
Antonia is looking good!
Final Results were Terrie Eldredge and Snippy as overall high point winner, Sara Garner WT Champion with Victoria Jones as Reserve. Reserve WTC Champion was Taralyn Kause.
From the first class through the day our September show had beautiful weather an lots of wonderful exhibitors.
Exhibitors in September came in all sizes and everyone enjoyed great judging and help from Clare Purdy.
Showmanship is a lot harder than it looks.
Looks like Delaney and Cotten are having fun.
Leadline is the intro class for our equestrians of the future.
We always have a wonderful turnout for the western classes.
Trail classes are always challenging.
We had several young horses showing who had never shown before and they were all very well behaved and did a bit of winning as well.
Our High Point Winners for the day were Terri Eldredge for overall and Champion in the WTC Division, Taralyn Krause Reserve Champion, and Reece Guier and Addison Krause were Champion and Reserve in the WT division.
Our High Point Show gave us some lovely sunshine and some new faces! This is Elizabeth with Gadget in her very first show to ride in without a lead!
