This is part six of the April 26 live show round-up series, but it's also part two of the Tornado Alley Goes Hog Wild show report. All pictures in this post were taken by Janna Ragsdale and are used with permission.
The English division was next. Janna had planned to show two horses, but tack issues forced her to abandon her Paloose in favor of her Depeche resin, Castiel. Fortunately, Castiel was more than up to the task, winning a pair of NAN cards in the both English Trail...
Val Tudor's Valentino was also up to the task, earning good ribbons and lots of NAN cards with one outstanding set-up after another.
Speaking of outstanding... Kim Haymond's performance entries are as interesting...
and detailed as her props! This is her Haflinger (shown with a Cristina Brown tack set)...
and here's her Purdy little mule (tack by Braymere Custom Saddlery).
Horse Ball was a surprisingly popular choice for the Other English class. Kim's mule did it.
So did Sheila Bishop's Zenyatta...and Janna's Castiel!
Speaking of Sheila, here's another one of her Other English entries. This darling Comet resin is wearing a BCS saddle.
In the end, Val's grey horse was English Performance Champion for both shows...with Kim's mule picking up one Reserve title (yay!).
On to Western!
This nice trail entry was created by Debbie Nickrent. Janna reports that this was Debbie's first time showing performance... Looks like she's the hang of it already!
Janna showed two models in this division and both qualified for NAN. This is Ruby Slippers...and this is Arriety.
Western Dressage has become an increasingly popular choice for the Other Western class. This lovely entry is owned by Val Tudor.
When it was all said and done, Val's Rose Reiner claimed both champion titles in the Western Performance division as well as the Overall Performance Champion honors for both shows.
Reserve Overall went to Val's English horse. Congratulations, to Val and everyone else who won those coveted pink cards at this very competitive show.
