Around the Rings – 2024 AQHA West L1 Championship Show – Tuesday, May 14

Filed under: Around The Ring Galleries,Featured,Show Results & Gallery |     

 

In the first class of the day at the 2024 AQHA West Level 1 Championship Show, a big L1 Amateur Performance Gelding class of 32 started the day in the main arena. When the final horse came forward for an award, Caitlyn Malyk and Willy Southern were crowned champions.  The team hails from Alberta, Canada, and it’s their second year showing together. “I bought him as a two-year-old, and last year was kind of our first show season. This is our second year going big, and our first time at Level One,” Caitlyn says.  She explains this is her first Quarter Horse, “I’m a Paint girl,” she adds.  Winning the class, she says, was amazing. “I couldn’t believe it. I was just hoping for a placing!”

Later in the day in the Priefert Arena, Robin Baldes and Lazyz Back In Black cinched the win in L1 Amateur Select Hunter Under Saddle after also winning their L1 Amateur Select Hunt Seat Equitation.

Looking up at Robin on “Toga” makes one realize he is a big boy at 18 hands.  Robin Rides with Jenn and Justin Wheeler, and she says she had wanted a big hunt seat horse, and they said Toga was sitting in someone’s pen in Bakersfield, and they encouraged her to go look at him. “It’s just been a dream, and I’m very blessed,” says Robin. “The last few months Jenn and Justin have added some of the western events on him, so he’ll do the all around now.”
