2017 Congress Wrap Up

In News 2017 by JMQH

The All American Quarter Horse Congress…a dream come true!

Competing at the largest all breed horse show in the world comes with lots of challenges – rider and horse excitement, anxiety and a huge new world of sites, sound and traffic. The JMQH team rose to the occasion and we couldn’t be more proud of how the horses and riders all handled these challenging conditions.

HANNAH BUIJS & LOPIN TO THE BAR
8th in the NYATT Horsemanship
Hannah & Tucker competed at their 7th Congress and have come home with a placing every year! An incredibly team!

SHELLEY SCRIVER & REMEMBER ME GOOD
had a very nice run in the Select Showmanship and some good learning moments in trail and horsemanship.

JODI MALLETTE & REMEMBER ME GOOD
had a personal best Congress trail run in the Senior Trail with a clean go and several plus scores on their slow obstacles. Couldn’t be more pleased!

ABBY SCHAAP & MY SECRET ADDICTION
their very first Congress and they had great performances in all of their classes! Abby & Riley are going to be quite the team to watch for in the future. These 2 showed no nerves showing under the big lights – they handled it like pro’s!

DARLA LEROUX & GO FOR THE HOT ONE
their very first “big” show outside of Ontario and it was the Congress! An injury sidelined our ability to prepare and perform at our best but this team rose above those issues and still delivered some solid performances. Another team to watch for in the future for sure!

PAULA TICKLE & DOWNRIGHT DYNAMIC
their first Congress was an excellent starting point with a very competitive go in the Trail leaving them in the top 30 their first time showing. Watch out for this team in the future! Thanks to Jill Rout for asking us to help Paula & Oliver!

PAULA TICKLE & IMPULSIVE ONES ONLY
another first for both Paula & Fancy travelling to this big show! They worked hard at their showmanship all week with Allyson Nicol and came away with a very solid performance for only their 6th time showing showmanship. This will be a rock star team in the future under Jill Rout’s guidance!
