Results announced for horse games
May 16, 2019
Here are the results of the first Silver Buckle horse gaming series show held last weekend at the Wahkiakum County Fairgrounds in Skamokawa:
There were a few changes over last year's list of events. This year we have added a Texas Barrels Jack Pot ride. We also added Time Only, this lets a rider do a practice ride before the official ride. Both were a successful addition to our line up.
Here are the show results:
The winner of the Texas Barrels Jack Pot ride was Katie Glasson.
On to the results for the regular event rides:
Pee Wee division, 1. Abby Doan, 2. Tru Most. Abby is only nine years old and turns in some fantastic times. This is Tru's second year in the series. Tru must have been practicing because she showed improved times over last year. Good work girls.
The results for the 12-18 year olds are: 1. Makayla Davis, 2. Katie Glasson, 3. Brooke Myers, 4. Lucy Kosa and 5. Baily McKinley. The times were very close in this age group, with tenths of a second being the difference at times. It will be interesting to see how this plays out at next month's show.
The 36 years and over had new rider Diane Carter taking first place and Ed Hunt taking second. This is Ed's second year in riding the series. Ed was a great dad and let his daughter Grace ride his horse this year. Had Ed not traded horses with his daughter, the results for this division would have been different. The play out between Diane and Ed will be another one to watch next month.
In the novice division, Grace Hunt showed greatly improved times over last year. Nice job Grace.
The daily high point winner was Makayla Davis. She won a $25 gift certificate to Brimm's Farm and Garden in Warrenton, Ore.
I would like to thank Mike Doan for his work on the arena and all his help during the show. We have a lot of great help that make this show possible. I'd like to thank Sheila, Judy, Marjorie, Genny and those nice young men that help with raking and set up. I would also like to thank our sponsors: Wahkiakum West, Brimm's Farm and Garden, Wilco Farm and Ranch, Troy and Corine Slobig, and Dixion Quarter horses. Your support is greatly appreciated.
The next show will be June 15. The gate will open at 8 a.m. for horse and riders to warm up. The first event will start at 10 a.m. Lunch will be available to purchase. For information call Valerie at 509-697-6049 or email me at email@example.com.
