Memorial Day is often a busy one for horse show folks. With the three-day holiday weekend providing time off from school and work, show managers do their best to pack in the most bang for your buck while still setting aside some time to socialize and relax with family and friends.

While many APHA competitors are in South Jordan, Utah at the Zone 2/Utah Paint-O-Rama, and AQHA competitors in the northeast are at the Gateway Classic in Lake St. Louis, Missouri, AQHA exhibitors in the northwest plan to enjoy a three-day weekend at the beautiful Evergreen State Fairgrounds for the WSQHA Trophy Circuit.

Because it’s Memorial Day weekend, the Washington State Quarter Horse Association has plenty of fun social events planned!

Last night, there was an Exhibitor’s Welcome Party sponsored by Three Ring Farm. Also, yesterday evening, the WSQHA Youth World Show Team hosted a Dine Out Fundraiser at Tuscano’s Italian Kitchen from 5:00-9:00 pm where 20% of each diner’s bill was donated to the youth organization!
