Coming home from the NRBC and then packing up for an FRHA show only 3 days later didn’t give the crew much time to recover. That didn’t stop them from putting on a great showing at the April FRHA show!! Mark kicked off the weekend with a big win in the open on Sail on Kuna Whiz, owned by Suzy DeChamplain! They posted the high score of the weekend with a 73.5! Shannon took Top Sailing Tivito to a 73 and the win in the Non Pro. She just eeked out the win against Kyndall Harper and Jazzy Cindy Lou. Kyndall won the Non Pro on Saturday on this great mare!
Colin King won the Ltd. Non Pro AND tied to win the Prime Time Non Pro with our own Nadine Galbraith! He just edged out Jim Windham who scored a 71.5! Molly White came back from a zero on day one to Win the green reiner 2 on Sunday!! Ashlyn Harper is continuing her winning ways winning the Rookie 1 on day 1 and BOTH divisions on day 2!! Burl White tied to win the Prime Time Rookie!! Aubrey Galbraith had an awesome weekend by winning BOTH 13 and under classes on the great gelding Smart Snap!
There were many many highlights on the weekend! Jan Pence, Nancy White, Samantha Kennard and Cain Creery all made huge strides in the show pen to learn some new show tactics and are ready to take that to the Carolina Classic. Mark’s new assistant Jimbo Albritton did a great job and was a 70.5 on the judges cards… but then there was that off pattern thing standing in the way:-) Jimbo’s wife Erica made her way to the show pen after having baby Kimber. She did a great job in the rookie and it was as if she never left. Ginger White jumped on Snow is on the Way to prepare for the Carolina Classic.. She walked out of the pen with a 72 and it was like she was on fire!!
We really enjoyed the show at the Canterbury facility!! We thank the staff there for being so accommodating!!
We are ready to head north to the Carolina Classic!! We can’t wait to see everyone there!!
