We had 38 horses come to sunny Sacramento during the Western States Horse Expo, May 9-12th, 2019. I'm pretty sure it was a big hit from the comments, most which seemed to be to the tune of 'When we do this next year'. Everyone looked like they were having a good time, horses all behaved well (almost all of the time, lol), much food was eaten, questions answered, photos taken and lots of networking and making new friends!
As I'm still writing up results and playing catch-up, here are the Most Versatile Awards.
Most Versatile Awards - These awards were given to the horse in each category that competed in at least two disciplines, such as dressage and jumping, dressage and obstacles, jumping and obstacles, or all three. Tekes or Teke crosses also needed to be in an In-Hand breed class.
Our sponsors sponsored the classes and also bought lovely coolers for all awards (except the Rare Breed Pony - we awarded a lovely engraved plate as the ponies ranged from 12 hands to 15+ and we couldn't quite figure out how to do a cooler for that)
