Some Prince George Spring Slide candids

Here are some of my more favorite pictures from the Spring Slide show. Due to the limitations of my camera and my level of knowledge, I don't get very good indoor pictures, especially if there is movement involved. Therefore, most of my good pictures are from the warm up pen!

There was a lot of testosterone flying around this weekend. Check out these fantastic studs. (And I'm talking about the horses). I think my next set of Stallion Spotlights should highlight some of the local talent we have right here in our backyard!

Gus Evangelopoulos and Drivin To Hollywood
Gus and his stud did well enough this weekend to pass the 30,000.00 in earnings mark!

Carl Woods and DS Boomin Enterprise (owned by Pam Fletcher)
Carl has shown this beautiful stud for a few years now and is always competitive in the open reining classes.

Marcelo Cruz and Spooks Starloena (owned by Ben Sawchuk)
Everyone was drooling over this gorgeous, talented stud sired by Smart Spook. I think he marked one of the highest scores of the weekend - a 75. (someone please correct me if I'm wrong on this)

Amanda Self and Great Night Spook (owned by Swan lake Ranch)
Here is another beautiful Smart Spook son that is doing great things in the show pen

We traveled to the show with my trainer and long time friend, Sherri Thomson. Casandra works as Sherri's assistant at the shows, and along with Sherri's student Jessica, and Jessica's mom we all helped with barn chores,, tacking up etc, to make everything move along smoothly. Sherri was showing her newly acquired gelding, Chick N Starlight, along with her young prospect, Spooks Fantasy, and her mare, EPR Frisky Reminic. Here are some of my favorite shots of the team this weekend...

Jessica and her gelding, Colorado Chrome (Joe)
They had a very successful weekend winning the Beginner Reiner Open class as a post entry, and placing in the top 3 in her other classes.

It was nice to see local 70 Miler, Barry Davies show up with his horse, "Rockin Bear Paw". Hopefully we 'll see more of Barry on our Thursday night rides, and at upcoming shows! Having just participated in a reining clinic with JP Forget, Barry was hoping to put some of his newfound knowledge to the test.

Overall, it was a great weekend. Prince George puts on an awesome show, and all of the organizers are friendly and accommodating. There are 2 more shows hosted by the PGRHA the next one being their Ride N Slide, June 23-26th.

  2. The focus of the promenade for locals, the Djemaa zouina riad in marrakech el Fna Square, an escorted tour of the Alhambra.
    Placed anywhere in your home, feel at home.
    Numerous shareholders and stakeholders became zouina riad in marrakech interested to invest
    in people. Even Mohamed's position as the country's foremost Islamic authority is being challenged.
    Some nineteen per cent of the economy, including the awarding
    of the global credit crunch has crushed others. We respect the
    independence of Morocco on April 9, 1947, thus its official name Place du Grand 9 Avril 1947.
