Hampshire, IL — The Summer Solstice show on June 22, 2019 is a great smaller show for many of our teams to hone up their skills before the larger shows that fall later in the season. This year, Terri Anne Ullman judged our riders and horses and while the Saddlebred division was strong here, our Morgans did very well in the equally strong OTAB division, which is always a great promoter of the breed.
Bruce and Susan Peterson’s Tudor Oaks The Real Deal GCH made a well earned victory pass in the OTAB Hunter Pleasure Championship in a large field of Morgans and other breeds with Bailey Schaller in the irons, after also besting her qualifier class. Also tying well in third place in this good class was Harlans Sharp Shooter with Alex Cleaveland, who moved up from fifth in the qualifier.
Christie Batka and her wonderful CBMF Whispers Of War did Morgans proud by winning the OTAB Western Pleasure qualifier and going on to a Reserve Champion title in the OTAB Western Pleasure Championship.
