The first place prizes went to Crystal Gribble and Push To Mo as they won the NCWHA Members Only class. Pretty Miss Claudia Gribble made the victory lap with her Mom for her first show ring experience. Marion Campbell is the trainer.

Gordon Ezzell and I’m Shania won the Plantation Pleasure Open class. Dee Dee Polk made an excellent show on Ozone’s Delight much to the delight of owner Lyvon Tyson to win the Four-Year-Old Open class. The Open Specialty proved to be a good competitive class with Teri Mosley wining on Centennial Pusher for Bucky Holcomb from Ronald Mosley Stables. In one of the largest classes of the night, Pat Calicutt and Just Feels Kinda Crazy were victorious in the Performance Pleasure class. Baucom Stables is the trainer.

Lynn Jones made a hard ride to win the Amateur Specialty Championship class on her horse, Flashy’s Loose Cannon. Ronald Mosley Stables prepares this team for competition. The Amateur Championship honors went to the deserving team of Joe Manis and I’m Cash on Delivery. David Polk Stables is the trainer of the winning horse.

It was a good show although it was getting a little cold toward the end as the NCWHA ends their season for 2004.
