One of the annual highlights of the show: The Virginia Quarter Horse Association Legends class! See the gallery from the class below from Jessica O’Connor Equine Imagery:
“This non-pro walk/jog class brought together the best of the best in hunt seat, western pleasure, and ranch. The top horse from each category won a fabulous belt buckle, and participants were all eligible to win prizes from a drawing afterward-including two CP Custom Saddles. As you can see, everyone came together to have fun with this one,” says Jessica O’Connor, the official show photographer!
“The Legends Class was a huge success – we would like to highlight that the ranch saddle was donated by CP Custom Saddles in memory of Randy Newsome. Thanks to Kristy Ellis for donating to honor her father, Randy Newsome. Congratulations to Pam Troutman on winning the saddle!” says VQHA Vice President Tim Cohill.
Also of note, the great Secretariat was born at The Meadow – click to enlarge the photos below:
