In case you missed the last show here are the results along with other great Cedar Hill Accomplishments (my apologies to anyone that I missed):
Darri Leavitt and Cyskho - High Point - Open Breeding Stock
- Reserve Champion in the Cascade Pinto Saddle Series!
- He missed the saddle by only 10 points!! - I must give congratulations to Darri as the Breeding Stock Division ran full classes all weekend (which is more than most of the other divisions can say). It was not like the old days of Breeding Stock with just a few horses. Very tough competition and competing against great quality stock types as well - great job Darri!
Mike Baker and Desi - Saddle Series Winner! - Open Western Games Division
- It wasn't pretty, but it was fast (well...fast enough). A beautiful gaming saddle by American Saddlery was awarded (see the website for a picture www.CedarHillTraining.com)
Sylvia Leavitt and Lacey knocked off more objectives toward their Supreme. Jodie Trueblood pulled Legacy out of retirement and is very close to getting her Supreme as well. Jodie also showed her new prospect Annie. Jennifer Freudenstein and Khachina had a fun time (as usual), and Maddison and Shadey had a couple of great goes in the games. Katie Mayer showed Dakota for the first time in many years - it was really nice to see them in the arena - watch out for those two in the future! Deana and Levi had their very first Showmanship Class and debut on the Pinto circuit - excellent job! Also, Crystal showed Levi for the first time in the Open Hunter type classes, they placed consistently with first and second places...and with only three classes shown, placed 4th in the overall show standings! (what if they had shown in four classes?!!)
Rumble in the Arena! - It was the big talk at the show - Fame (the formerly naughty Saddlebred stallion) decided to test Crystal's resolve (it was inevitable) - results:
Fame - 0
Crystal - undefeated
Amazingly, despite the knock-down, drag-out fight, they pulled a Grand Champion and Two Reserve Champions! Wow! Fame is a really cool black and white stud and should make some outstanding babies. He has actually become one of Crystal's favorites to work with. Keep an eye out for him - he's a good lookin' boy!
Also more congrats:
Joy and Snickers: Great Job at the Pierce County Fair they will be representing their age group at State Fair. They cleaned up in the driving categories! Also:
For year end awards, Joy and Snickers earned the Driving Showmanship High Point perpetual trophy.
Joy and Snickers also earned the Driving High Point Overall perpetual trophy. (see pictures at www.CedarHillTraining.com) Great work Joy!
Crystal DeRocher and Ziggy qualified for State! Those of you who know Ziggy's background know that this is a HUGE accomplishment - this has been a real labor of love for Crystal - Awesome!
Kathy Atkinson and Gossip Girl cleaned up at a recent benefit show for rescue horses. Good work Kathy! Also, Gossip Girl is a very nice POA rescue who is looking for new home, let us know if you are interested.
We will be spending the next few weeks getting caught up around the farm and getting ready for the September Jubilee show - there will be some more awards and announcements before then so...stay tuned!
