PFHA Grand National Championship Show: Day 2

by By Sarah Holt, Paso Fino Horse Association | Sep 21, 2004, 12:00 PM

Day two of the Paso Fino Horse Association Grand National Championship show was another fun-filled day of extremely full classes, plus lots of fun and entertainment. Near record entries had many classes running two or even three sections before bringing back the best in each section to choose the best of the group.

In the Performance Geldings for Gold class, Artillero Arroyo Maraca owned by Dick Miller of Des Moines, IA, was victorious. In the huge Pleasure Mares class, La Gavlota De Fanfarrona, ridden by Michael Bruce, brought home the title for owner Jody Schon of North Salem, NY. The final class of the evening saw the Hacienda Los Angeles owned, Pirata de Besilu and rider Angela K. Redondo win the Fino Amateur Owner Class.

The PFHA High Point Horse of the Year was awarded to Hechicera PM, owned by Bill Minter of Lexington, NC, Paul E. Mercer of McArthur, OH, and Alan Dwayne Tilley of Winston Salem, NC.

The action continues with more great classes, fun entertainment and special awards. The competition runs through Saturday, September 25, starting each morning at 8:30 a.m.(ET).
