Keith Kosel won the Asil Trophy and was our English Only Chamion. Macala Brown won our Buzznai Versatility trophy for 2010. In all a wonderful showing with good competiton and good friends.
Keith Kosel and his homebred mare Bint Maslaha took home both the English Only Championship and the Asil trophy sponsored by The Institute for the Desert Arabian Horse.
It is not all about the winning, it is also about being with friends and enjoying the horses in an atmosphere of relaxed excellence.
Gail and Hank have put in great performances all year long. It is so nice to watch a green horse mature into a good show horse.
Our judges take time to talk to the competitors and give suggestions.
We hope everyone will join us in 2011 for our 34th year of Open Horse Shows. We want to thank our wonderful ribbon girl Maribel (whose mother makes the great tamales) for her continued help on Show Day!
