July 4th Weekend Fun!

We had a great weekend in Ocala, FL at the FRHA show! Suprisingly, it was not too hot!

We have three beautiful youth girls who are relatively new to showing in the reining. They each had their own successes this weekend.

First, Cassandra Saldi had an excellent run Saturday morning in the Youth 14-18 class. She ended up finishing in 2nd with a 69 1/2! This is her best yet! We are so proud of her, she has been working hard and riding her mare everyday! Here she is with her proud Mommy and nephew...

Morgan Burns also had a great run on Saturday winning the Novice Non Pro class with a 71! She is looking great with her new horse Oakie! Morgan is also been riding and working very hard to reach her goals.

Caroline Blackshear had a great weekend finishing off on Sunday with 2 amazing rides! A 72 to win the Youth 14-18! And before that a 71 put her in the lead for the Ladies class. Great job Caroline!
We are also very excited to mention her 3rd Place finish at the CRI Competition in Oklahoma City last week at the NRHA Derby. She won the bronze medal and a trip to Kentucky for the Finals!

Lucas McCullough, the one lucky boy youth rider (he gets to hang out with all these cute girls) had a great run on his gelding, Bobby in the youth class.

Elissa Roberts also did well showing in the Ladies both days with First and Second places!

And Congratulations Kay Simpson who rode to a nice 69 1/2 in the Rookie on Sunday giving her a top five finish!

And last but not least, Jeremy Zangl did quite well on his horse Stormy earning a paycheck.....way to go Jeremy!
