Al Prewitt Memorial Horse Show

The Al Prewitt Memorial Horse Show in Fletcher, NC turned out to be a great one for Stoner Ridge Farm. We had lots of excited clients join us for the first shows of the season (it actually counted as two separate shows). Bob Morris from PA, Nancy Copland from IN, Judy Brummer from IL, Steve Heuslein from MN, all came from out of state to see their horses show. Terry Kleier, Cassie Thompson and Marcia and Tim Spencer all came from here in KY. We had a great time. There were over 90 classes in the two day period so we all worked really hard to get all the horses ready to show and entered in their appropriate classes. Special congratulations goes to SRF's Silver Sundown (owned by Steve Heuslein) for his many wins over the two days. He won the Stallion Trail Pleasure class, Open Western, Trail Obstacle, and both Trail Pleasure Championships - Woo Hoo! Steve also placed him second in the Amateur Trail class. His many wins helped him win the Versatility Award as well. One of Steve's other horses, Gaitway's Jasmine Joy also did very well at this show. She placed second in Versatility and won the Country Trail Pleasure Mares, the Amateur Country Trail Pleasure, and placed reserve in the championship with Steve in the irons. Congratulations! Other horses did well also. Sandman's Taking Chances owned by Nancy Copland won the canter class his very first time at a show. He also placed in his other classes. Judy Brummer's 9 year old mare, Legenday Lady (two time Sam Tuttle winner) won the Mares Trail Pleasure class with Judy up. Way to go Judy! Other horses that ribboned this weekend were Highland's Poudre Lyric, Pepper's Capital Venture, Mountain Vista Thunder, RRF Gold Nugget, and Sonny's Smokey Mountain. Our congratulations goes out to Cassie Thompson for winning the Juvenile Versatility and the Jacob Lutz Youth Memorial Award. The Al Prewitt Memorial Horse Show was especially well attended this year. I have never seen this quality of horses so early in the year. There were actually 19 horses in the 4 and over conformation class! It was a great competition.
