2014 WWPCSA AMERICAN NATIONAL AND TULSA STATE FAIR SHOW
We finally made it to another Welsh show after a long break with our trainer having babies and adopting. We now have a new trainer, David Bradbury of Equestrian Logic in Colorado Springs. We chose to travel to Tulsa again for the American National Show that was combined with the Tulsa Fall Show and State Fair. There were two judges for the in-hand classes, so there will be the American National Show and The Tulsa State Fair Show in the results. The judges were Daniel Morgan of Parc Welsh Stud and Samantha Johnson of Miracle Welsh. We did WELL! We took 6 cobs, 5 for in hand and one for Performance. Our handlers were Todd Barbey, David Bradbury, Michelle Duregger, Caroline Miller, and Jacqueline Martin. David Bradbury was our rider. The results will be listed by Cob name. To see more photos of each cob, please visit our other pages!
We traveled to Elk Grove, CA, for the 2010 WPCSA American National Show and Brookside Welsh Show. We took Minyffordd Megastar (at 18 years young), Mynydd Hir Starbucks, MHS Brianna, and MHS Octavia. We again are very happy with our results and would love to share them with you. In hand classes were shown by Todd Barbey, David Bradbury, and Daniela Leidy. The riders were Daniela Leidy and David Bradbury. Please see each horse's page for more photos.
