SOQHA and An Equine Production have done it again, producing a fantastic event on new, temporary dates, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There were a few curveballs thrown, like when rapidly evolving state and city requirements necessitated the use of masks hallways through the event. But everyone complied with the order and continued showing their horses happily, just through smiling eyes.
The Madness took place July 21-26 in Wilmington, Ohio with judges Brad Jewett, Liz Baker, TW Grose, Brett Clark, John Kunkle, John Briggs, Jennifer Leckey, Pierre Briere, and Lisa Ligon officiating.
The main highlights of the show consisted of the EC Maiden 3 and Over Western Pleasure and the 3 and Over Novice Horse Western Pleasure, which saw Aaron Moses with Made Ya Look and Rusty Green with Nothin But Nett as the champions, respectively. Click here to view complete results.
