Area 3 continues to have the largest AQHA show circuit’s in Ontario and Summerama 2014 blew the recent historical numbers out of the water! With over 5500 entries under 4 AQHA judges there were many classes that maxed out in AQHA points with 45+ exhibitors!
On top of the outstanding numbers there were also a few extra things included in the show that were lots of fun – including the Pairs Horsemanship class which raised over $1400 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Fat Boys & Area 3 also hosted an Exhibitor dinner and while there had been an anticipated increase in numbers, they were blown away with how many people came out and were very apologetic that some exhibitors missed out. We promise to order more food next year!!!
There were also excellent circuit awards, high points, random prizes and exhibitor awards throughout the show. Every exhibitor received a zip portfolio bag courtesy of sponsor Double RJ Quarter Horses and Area 3. Several payback classes were offered and exhibitors loved the opportunity to compete for CASH!
Area 3 would like to thank the exhibitors for choosing THIS show – we saw many license plates from New York, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, PEI, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Quebec and of course Ontario. We appreciate your support and hope you had a wonderful experience!
Thanks go out to the many people involved in running the show – the team from Mark Harrell Horse Shows (David & Kathy), Greg Reeves and his trail volunteers, Ring Stewards Val Love & Joanne, Kate Laing and the Orangeville Ag Society members, the Area 3 Board of Directors who work hard to secure sponsors and prizes, and of course the SPONSORS who have donated their funds and products to help us make the show GREAT.
