2019 Show Season Recap
Show season has ended for New Jersey pointed shows. To recap the past show season, it started on April with Delaware Quarter Horse Association holding their show at the Dream Park in Gloucester County. Over 600 entries, points in almost every class, 15 entries in a halter class. A great time was had by all who attended.
In May, NJQHA had their show at the Dream Park. Linda Ceresani was given a buckle in appreciation for all her dedicated years and guidance.
Chicks held their show this year in NJ and it was sold out. Large number of entries in each class and a lot of fun.
The Region Five Show was held on June 26, 2019. New this year on the prize list, Level 2 classes. Buckles were supplied by AQHA for first place in Level 1 divisions and Adequan supplied the buckles for the Level 2 divisions. Our youth Vice President Adrianna Goolsby, accompanied by her Mom, Heather Goolsby started the day with Singing the National Anthem. Great job Anna and Heather. Thank you to Michelle Coyle for acquiring donations for prizes. A special thank you to Pennsylvania Quarter Horse Association, Virginia Quarter Horse Association and Delaware Quarter Horse Association for your continued support and donations year after year. It would not be possible without you all.
The New Jersey Quarter Horse Youth Show was held from June 27-30. New for circuit awards this year was a prize closet, organized by Flossie Ale. For placing first through third place, you received a ticket worth a dollar amount and you could take your winnings and pick what you wanted as an award. Everyone seemed to like it. Thank you Flossie for all your hard work. Thank you to Kaycie Reilly for donating the leadline prizes and Dina Hurley, Crossroads Trailer Sales for the All Around prizes.
Sussex County Fair Show was August 1-3. It was quite exciting with a steer getting loose from the 4H area and running through the fair, down to the barns. Never a dull moment at the fair! Our very own Nicolette Occhifinto represented Andover in the Sussex County Fair Queen Contest, she was second runner up out of 22. Congratulations Nicolette.
