It is the Championship weekend here at the Canadian National Quarter Horse Show and competitors couldn’t have asked for a better day! The sun is shining and it is a nice warm morning. The day started off with the ever growing Ranch Riding classes and then continued into the Showmanship. The Novice Amateur Showmanship class just kicked off the AQHA Showmanship classes and had 21 excellent entries a very deep class. Great to see such big classes at this Championship Show. Stay tuned for results throughout the Weekend!
The Canadian National Quarter Horse show kicks off Aug 26th and runs through the 30th at Westerner Park in Red Deer, Alberta. This premier show will award 130 National Championships to deserving exhibitors from across Canada and the United States. With a full slate of classes including everything from Halter to Reining it will be an exciting week in Canada as the top competitors reach for those championship buckles. The 2015 Judges Marilyn Randall, Kelly Smith, Dan Trein, Clay McLeod and Brett Clark will have a tough job on their hands as they sort through the outstanding horse and rider teams.
