Having Fun In Florida



by Mary A. Palmer

TAMPA, Fla. - The weather was perfect as the Florida Walking and Racking Horse Association hosted another show, this time at the covered arena at the Florida State Fairgrounds on June 28, 2008. Sid Baker of Hoffman, N.C., had the job of judging the entries, assisted by Donna Fellers. This was a casual dress fun show and all agreed it was a fun time.

Taking home the blue in one of the largest classes of the day, the Jackpot Amateur Easy Gait Specialty division were Sue Fullerton and Copper Coyote. Copper Coyote also claim the victory in the Youth Easy Gait 12-17 division with Chelsea Palmer in the irons.  There were several horses who took home multiple blues including Weldon Vineyard and Shadow On The Mountain who topped the Favorite Gait division, the Amateur Owned & Trained Country Pleasure division and the Amateur Country Pleasure class with Carson Wells in the irons. Wayne Van De Walker and Smarty’s Gone And Done It won the large Amateur Western Trail Pleasure Specialty class and Amateur Owned & Trained Trail Pleasure Specialty division. The Grand Liza Jane and Laurie Wilson took home blues in the Lite-Shod English Specialty and Western Lite-Shod Specialty divisions.  

Kathy Anderson and Oh My Irene were pleased with their wins in the Park Pleasure English Specialty and Western Park Pleasure Specialty classes. The Kuszlyk family was proud of John Kuszlyk III and Tunie’s Magic Enchanter who won the Youth Easy Gait 11 & Under Specialty class. Maryssa Ludwig directed Tunie’s Magic Enchanter to the Youth Country Pleasure class.
