Around the Rings Photos and Results – SJPHC Triple Crown Fall Color Challenge & All Breed Horse Show

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

San Joaquin Paint Horse Club just finished its SJPHC Triple Crown Fall Color Challenge & All Breed Horse Show on August 27-28, 2022, at Murieta Equestrian Center in Rancho Murieta, California.  Judges were Michael Weaver and Cindy Weight-Carter. The event was run by Show Manager Jennifer Barbee, Stall Manager Meredith Biasca, and Secretary Jennifer Mendes, along with the SJPHC Show Committee volunteer staff.

Cindy Weight-Carter

The day prior to kicking off the show, SJPHC held a clinic taught by APHA-approved Clinician and multiple-carded judge Cindy Weight Carter, an opportunity called “Unlocking the Judge’s Score Card.”  Cindy donated her time for the clinic. Six participants demonstrated Showmanship, Horsemanship and Equitation patterns as Cindy spoke through her scoring for each element along with tips to avoid penalties. The clinic had about 40 auditors around the arena.

This show is all about exhibitors, demonstrated by touches like the “SJPHC Selfie Station,” set up at the announcer’s booth.  SJPHC also kicked off their fun by giving away a free t-shirt to the first 50 exhibitors to check in at the show office.

Linda Ferguson Tacklind and Melissa Sachs, the dynamic duo behind TS Paints, make it possible for SJPHC to award an Exhibitor Appreciation Saddle each year. All exhibitors earn a chance to win a free work saddle for each class entered. The winner is drawn Saturday evening during the Exhibitor Appreciation BBQ.

Saddle winner Katie Rathburn!

This year’s Exhibitor Appreciation Saddle winner was Katie Rathburn! Continuing her good luck, Katie and her sorrel Quarter Horse gelding, Good And Thirsty, competed in the All-Breed classes at the show and were Reserve Champion High Point for the division. Congratulations to the reserve prize winner, Jan Mannion, who went home with the convertible saddle rack cart. Jan exhibited three horses at the show including her 2020 sorrel mare, Talking Shop, winning in 2 Year Old Hunter Under Saddle and taking second in the Green Hunter Under Saddle.

Another highlight of the show was all Ranch Horses exhibited earning a chance for a free stall at Goldmine Viva Las Vegas. The winner was Lopin To The Party, a 2014 buckskin tobiano mare owned by

Yolanda Prentice

Katherine Demeyer-Callaway. The mare is leased and exhibited by Yolanda Prentice in Amateur and exhibited by Brandi Payer in Open events. “Patsy” had an excellent show with wins and placings in several Amateur and Open classes. In the final classes of the show, Patsy won the Amateur and Open Ranch Riding under both judges – and then was randomly selected as the free stall winner. Thank you to Carolyn Rey Dobbins and Goldmine Viva Las Vegas for donating the stall.

In addition to all the added fun, there was the competition! For example, the SJPHC All-Breed Longe Line Jackpot Futurity is a highly sought after win every year. This time, I Heart You More, owned by Roxann Crosby, earned the top spot. I Heart You More is a yearling red roan Quarter Horse and was exhibited by Roxann’s daughter for the win. The jackpot paid to 3rd place. All participants received an SJPHC yellow show bag with a Farnam super mask, Robinhoods tail bag, and other horse show goodies.

For the second year in a row, the Carol Brown Memorial Super Horse Award was won by CNC Closing Time. Already an APHA Reserve World Champion and 5-time Western National Champion, the 2018 sorrel overo gelding was exhibited by Dan Mannion and is owned by Craig and Cindy Polley. The sponsors, Steve Nash and Buck Brown, awarded CNC Closing Time with a custom leather and silver Show Halter, a beautiful Silverado belt buckle, and a bag of Farnam products.

The inaugural Dave Ruby DIY Non Pro High Point Exhibitor for event was Kristi Stone. Named for the APHA State Director and long-time SJPHC Ring Steward who passed away in 2021, this award was particularly special because Kristi is Dave’s daughter.  There were 12 exhibitors in the race for the DIY award, each competing without a paid trainer or coach for at least 90 days prior to the show. Show Manager Jennifer Barbee says, “Thank you to Michelle McBride for your generous sponsorship of the winner’s award, a Stanley DIY Toolbox overflowing with equine essentials. Kristi also went home with an SJPHC lounge chair so she can finally put up her feet after all that ‘doing!’”

On Sunday, the club’s well-run Facebook event page announced to exhibitors to be on the lookout for the Prize Patrol. The club’s three red golf carts went around the facility creating excitement and earning cheers as they delivered prizes to the barns as soon as awards were calculated for the 16 high points of the show.

Here are the high points!

Thank you to Jennifer Barbee for some great candid photos from the show:
