Saddle Club Fun Show results

Successful event held in Metchosin

  • Jun. 15, 2011 10:00 a.m.

The Sooke Saddle Club’s Funshow was on May 28 at the Metchosin Riding Ring.  Judged by Tatum Claypool, we had a good turnout with a total of 21 riders, and 18 horses.  

Two children entered the Leadline Classes, with Marin Clarkston on Rosilee Tay winning the Leadline Pleasure, and Krya Lazzar on Dakota winning the Leadline Equitation. Funds raised were donated to the Metchosin Equestrian Society Trail Improvement Fund for the Hillman Trail/bridge in memory of Amanda Zinger, a member of our horse community who died recently. 

The Nervous Nellie Class is designed to give new riders or riders with young horses a chance to be in the show ring and learn what is expected.

Other classes included Showmanship; Pleasure (judged mainly on the horse); Equitation (judged on the rider), Performance (riding a presscribed pattern); and Musical Rides – judged on creativity and how well the horse and rider work together.

Equestrian classes were divided into Walk/Trot and Open (for riders able to compete at walk, trot and canter).  These were divided into Jr. (under 19 as of 01/01/11) and Sr.

High Point winners were Rebecca Vowles on Winston (Walk/Trot Jr.); Karen England on West Coastin’ (W/T Sr.); Rachael Brown on Ms Sherry (Open Jr.).  Tied for High Point Sr. were Christina Nash on Fortissimo and her mother, Gail Nash on Rusty My Buddy.
