We are very fortunate to have Thunderbird Show Park as our "local" venue. Not only is the management exceptional, they have developed a facility that is focused on the horsemanship side of things - the footing, stabling, layout, and the way they act upon constructive input. It's so important that hunter/jumper stables support venues that put back into their facilities so that the future of these venues are secure. In the end, we all benefit from this investment.
I can speak for everyone at Crooks Show Jumping when I say that we look forward to supporting venues such as Thunderbird that provide the best experience for horse and rider.
Congratulations to our horse and rider combinations for a great week of showing:
- Paris McCaw and Conington: Winner of the Modified...
So proud of our riders this week at Northwest Autumn Finals for their tricolors and Zone 9 Championships! It's great to see these horse and rider combinations work so hard this year and it shows in the results! A big thank you to Denise Youell for all the fantastic coaching!
- Amy Berman and Morrison claimed the Zone 9 Year End Championship and horse show Reserve Champion in the Adult Hunter 50 & Over
- Anna Kotler and Paint the Town dominated her first year in rated ponies by taking both the Zone 9 Year End Championship and horse show Championship in the Medium Pony Hunters
- Katie Kotler and Off the Chart had an outstanding performance in the WSHJA Good Seat & Hands Finals taking 1st place and then later on 3rd place in a very competitive THIS Medal!
I would like to give Thunderbird Show Park a huge THANK YOU for a great 2 weeks of competition! Our clients, staff, and horses always enjoy coming up to this wonderful venue with great management. Here are some fun moments we captured at our home away from home :)
