The Missouri Quarter Horse Association Maple Leaf horse show marked a special occasion as it was the first event for Christian Jauntig’s new management company, Topline Event Management. The four-judge AQHA show took place March 24-27 in Lake St. Louis, MO. Judges were Sandy Jirkovsky, Lisa Ligon, Bruce Army, and Christa Baldwin.
There were a few special events during the show including Showmanship Mimosas on the concourse and a Slide Contest Friday evening where the winner received a bronze trophy and $2,500 in Showtime Show Clothing Saddle Pads were awarded.
“Wow! What a fantastic first Topline managed show! We’re so thrilled to have been in Missouri for the Maple Leaf. Numbers were fantastic across the board,” says Judge Lisa Ligon.
