Wow, did the exhibitors ever luck out with the weather at this years spring Gold N Grand! With rain threatening the whole weekend the schedule was planned for everyone to have a covered place to show, well, except the trail people! However, it never actually rained during the day. Trail was pretty muddy on Sunday, but everyone managed well. The reining pens were a little crowded since they had to cut down the arenas to make a small warm up area for them. Friday, the weather was beautiful, and Saturday was cold. English classes were only about 2 hours long, and everything else used most of the day. Most of the classes I saw were well attended, and there were plenty of vendors for shopping! Results have not been posted as of yet, but the awards were beautiful. Saddles for weekend high points, buckles to top five weekend circuit winners, and embroidered halters for AQHA weekend circuit winners. The photographer for the show was Shane Rux. Enjoy some candids from around the show.
Finally, there will be a Open Horse Show happening along with the Sacramento County Fair. It is Thursday May 24, 2012. Entries close May 15. English, Western, Reining, and Showmanship. Stake and Premium classes with cash prizes! Download the flyer below:
