VS GoodRide Candids & Rundown from The WSQHA Trophy Circuit
The WSQHA Trophy Circuit just finished up in Monroe, Washington. It was held at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds. The judges for the show included Keith Miller, Laurel Walker Denton, Clay MacLeod, Margo Ball, Pierre Briere, and Gary Roberts.
Our AQHA State affiliate hosted our largest show in ten years. We welcomed exhibitors from Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Alaska, and Canada. Our youth classes were well attended and our future looks bright. Over 200 circuit champions were awarded over our 4-day circuit.
“The Trophy Circuit is always a great show, and we appreciate it a little extra because we didn’t get to have it last year,” Trainer Paige Stroud told us. “The beautiful sunny days, large class numbers, and tough competition were great to see.”
Trainer Teresa Sullivan added, “It’s a big show for the youth and amateurs. The show is running late nights, but it has a great atmosphere, and everyone is happy to be at a show.”
