1st Annual Quentin Riding Club Celebration Now Belongs to He’s Ritz And Famous

QUENTIN, Penn. - The first annual Quentin Riding Club Celebration was held on July 5th and 6th, in Quentin, Pennsylvania. The Ironmasters of Cornwall purchased the beautiful riding club grounds in the 1800’s. The farm was later the site of the first Hackney horse and pony farm in America. The Quentin Riding Club, formed in 1935, has been a place where horse people and the community mingle over delicious food and fine spirits in a relaxed equestrian atmosphere.

Terri L. Mosley of Mt. Airy, North Carolina, spent the holiday weekend judging the sixty-three Walking Horse classes. Announcer Bobo Klinefelter and ring master Ken Fisher, kept the show moving. Show Manager, Sylvia Alfano, was very pleased with the amount of entries for the first Quentin Riding Club Celebration. The show committee met on Sunday and decided to definitely have the show again in 2003.

For the second time in one month, the famous grounds saw the crowning of He’s Ritz And Famous as the big Stake winner with Jeff Hatcher in the irons for Judy Morrisett of Charlestown, West Virginia.

The Bill Reel Stables had a great weekend with nine blues. Ann Hawn won two blues with her debut ride on Black Max. One of the most exciting classes was the Amateur Specialty and Dorothy Schafer on Stormy Forecast made the victory ride Friday and Saturday night. In the Juvenile 17 and Under class, Chad Funkhouser and Gold Series took blues on both nights. Bruce Long Stables dominated the Pleasure division, making eight victory passes.
