Queen Claudia Morgan hosted a special fun class Saturday evening at the NJ QH Youth Show, Adult Leadline. The entry fees collected were divided between the winner, NJQHA Queen Program and NJQHYA. When the gate closed, the arena was filled with 25 horse, hander, and rider combinations! Our volunteer guest judge Lora Knelly Thomas and her helper assistants - Harrison, Haddie and Natalie had quite a time evaluating each rider. When the placings were finally tallied, Patricia Cosentio aboard Invitemetobe Radical lead by Nicholette Occhifinto claimed the Champion title.
