Check out some of this year’s highlights and special awards…
GDHA Members’ Cart Winner:
Dorsi Burney & AHF Bender’s Bristol
This class was created exclusively for the members of the Georgia Draft Horse Association and has become a popular class to witness some friendly (and often funny) competition between our members!
Karen McQueen Memorial Pleasure Driving TrophyMichaela Redecker & Iron Horse MM Audacious
Sponsored by GDHA member, Dusty McQueen, in memory of his late wife, Karen, this beautiful trophy vase was presented to the winner of the Heavy Draft Pleasure Driving class.
Heavy Draft Adult Obstacle Under Saddle
Lynn Pickett & Supreme Ellie Mae
The Obstacle Courses are some of the most popular and crowd pleasing classes at our show – and they’re a whole lot of fun to watch! Thank you to GDHA member, Jessica Cronin, for designing, building, and setting up another creative course this year!
Rebecca Cannon Under Saddle Achievement Award
Kaylee Edgerton & Rockett
Special trophies sponsored by the GDHA and Rebecca’s family & friends (Johnny Cannon, Lynn Johnson, & Lawana Higgins) with added cash payout donated by Annie’s Legacy Homestead, were given in Rebecca’s memory to the winners of her favorite Draft riding classes: English & Western Under Saddle Walk/Trot.
Rockett made his Perry debut under the proud new ownership of GDHA member (and Rebecca’s sister), Lynn Johnson! Rebecca’s husband, Johnny, presented the award with a big smile and maybe a few happy tears too!
Thank you to Dusty McQueen of Berry Oaks Farm and Aaron & Emily Dailey of Willow Bend Farm for sponsoring our annual Stall Decorating Contest!
It’s amazing how much time, effort, and creativity goes into making our Draft Horse Barn look so festive, and everyone does a fantastic job! Congratulations to the top three winners!
