In the Preifert Arena at South Point Equestrian Center in Las Vegas, Makaley Jannah and A Classy Chex won top honors in the L1 Youth 13 & Under Hunt Seat Equitation at the 2024 AQHA West L1 Championship Show!  Makaley has had “Ella” almost a year, and her favorite classes Western Riding and Horsemanship, and Equitation can probably be added to that list now!

“It was a good pattern,” Makaley says, and her trainer, Paige Stroud trainer, “helped me with all the elements – my diagonals and my forehand turn.”  She explains even though Ella is not smooth, she’s fun to ride and “she’s taught me a bunch! She’s definitely sensitive and I had to learn to be lighter with her.”  Makaley adds that she got the horse bug from her mom and granny – mom showed 4H.

Congrats, Makaley!

She came to the rescue for Rose Amala while “Pawn Star” is recuperating. What was it like showing her first show horse, a walk trotter, at all three gaits?
