After a solid week of beautiful weather and sunny skies, Congress goers are bracing for the wet weather. None of it is dampening the mood here at the All American Quarter Horse Congress, however. The final weekend upon us, everyone is anticipating the Equine Chronicle Masters Two Year Old Hunter Under Saddle and Western Pleasure classes! Always a thrill, the event is kicked off with grand introductions and a famous light show, followed by the Hunter Under Saddle Masters class. Between classes, the live auction will take place, proceeds benefiting Nellie’s Catwalk for Kids (NC4K) in their goal to improve the lives of pediatric cancer patients and their families. The evening will cap off with the Western Pleasure Masters Class.
Emily Messing is the 2012 Congress Queen, RU Radical Chocolate is the high seller ($38,000) in the Super Sale, and River Cities Quarter Horse Association is the winner of the NYATT team tournament! Not to mention the Champions and Reserve Champions who have been named in the last few days!! We are looking at temperatures in the high 70′s for the rest of the week, and sunny skies! Ahhhh, what a Congress!
