More VS GoodRide Candids from 2020 NSBA World Show
The 2020 NSBA World Show in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is winding down, and GoHorseShow photographer, Danielle Long has been taking photos of the winners and candids throughout the show. We have compiled some of our favorites in a slideshow for your viewing.
Some of the highlights of this year’s show include Never Have I Ever going for her seventh win of the show later today in the Three Year-Old Limited Non-Pro with owner Dakota Andrie. Legendary mare Strawberri Wine won both the Senior and 50&Over Western Riding. This pretty roan mare is owned by Kenneth and Laina Banks. Non-Pro Deanna Green has had an impressive show winning multiple trophies with her horses, Spot Light and Beez In The Trap.
Also, some first-time NSBA World Champions include Breanna Merklin and Chips Machine in a very deep 14-18 Horsemanship and Tali Terlizzi and Al Be Bleau in the BCF 4-6 Non Pro Hunter Under Saddle. Repeat winners were Senior Hunter Under Saddle Champions, Willy Has Potential and Beth Case; Sydnie Ochs and No Doubting Me in the 14-18 Western Pleasure; Lane Kail and A Good N Hot Machine in the 13 & Under Pleasure; and Kristen Galyean and VS Lady In Red in the Amateur Western Pleasure.
Meredith Landy and her new gelding, All Good won two classes in one day, 50&Over Color Hunter Under Saddle and the 4-6 Color Non Pro Hunter Under Saddle, all in the course of a few hours. Another two class winner was Meghan Tierney who won the 2-Year Old Non Pro Hunter Under Saddle Wednesday morning with Enticed and then changed in to her western clothes and won the BCF 2YO Limited Non Pro Western Pleasure with Moola.
Select Amateur Trail Champion Janet Egolf and her 15-year old gray gelding, Hes Forever Good were fan favorites. Their emotional win touched the hearts of everyone at the show.
Due to a conflict with his high school football practice schedule, Grant Mastin and Hand Made Machine weren’t supposed to show in the Youth Western Riding, but Grant missed his flight and the stars aligned in his favor. This team took home the win in a new class for them.
Al Fool Ya, owned by Ali Hartman, won two of the toughest classes at the show – the Maturity Open Hunter Under Saddle and the Amateur Hunter Under Saddle.
With three championship trophies so far, Non-Pro Exhibitor William Oliver and Enchanted Lexus are on fire. Forever Cool and Nancy Ditty won the Maturity Non-Pro Western Pleasure Class with father Stanley Scott in the stands, and we are sure her late mother, Susan Scott, is smiling down on these champions.
We can’t mention all the winners, but we’d like to send heartfelt congratulations to the champions and all the exhibitors who had great rides.
