The Pacific Arabian A Class Show was held on the 12th and 13th September 2020 at the Maryborough Showgrounds, this show is run by a very small Mackay and District Arabian Group and they do a fantastic job running the show and competing. A BBQ was held on the Friday Night as a get together for those people who had travelled early and it was a great opportunity for people to meet and have a chat.
Saturday's program started off with a fantastic lineup of derivatives in the halter ring and included - Arabian Warmbloods, Anglos, Partbreds, Arabian Ponies, Arabian Riding Ponies, Half Arabians and Api Classes. The open ring was judged by Lauretta Wright who did a great job. Plenty of different types and colours to keep everyone happy. Supreme Derivative Senior Halter horse - Victoria Park Wishlist and Supreme Derivative Junior Halter horse - Sanjoy Santino.
Purebred Ridden horses followed the halter horses and some really quality horses and riders showed some lovely flashy workouts for good results. Supreme Purebred Ridden - Christine Hellyer with Fames Phantom MI.
The Junior ring was in full swing on Saturday morning with smiles all around and lots of fun. Deb Watson judged the juniors and did a fabulous job, making the day fun for the parents and the kids. We had some very excited winners and these kids really are our future showies and pleasure riders. All showed lovely manners and sportsmanship.
A night program was included with a fantastic lineup of pure and derivative horses vying for the freestyle workout championship, everyone gave it their all with some great backing music. Our Judges did a wonderful job sorting out the winners. It was a close competition but an eventual deserving winner in the Purebred section sashed was Christine Hellyer with Fames Phantom MI. The Derivative Ridden winner was Christine Hellyer with EBL Richlist. The Western horses strutted their stuff for the first time in the night program and it was a welcome addition - Winner Erin Krahnen with Foxylicious. We also had an API Freestlye this year - winner Morgan Lyall with Elray All Saint.
Next in were the Liberty horses, this is always a fun class and with the horses left to do their thing we were treated to some really nice moving horses who were happy to show off for their owners. The winner of the Purebred Liberty was the flashy Balmoral MI owned by Hollie Webster and the winner of the Derivative Liberty was Amiraakel J-S owned by Debbie Hage. The Hi Point winner was presented with an amazing painting done by a local artist - Tammy Martin from Painted Brush Studios.
Sunday started with the purebred halter horses and these horses put on a real show for the spectators, some lovely up and coming youngsters were on show. Supreme Purebred Senior Halter horse - Rose Gum Crown Princess and Supreme Purebred Junior Halter horse - Andronicus FF.
The purebreds were followed by the derivative saddle horses who put in some great workouts, it was great to see some youngsters coming through and handling the relaxed atmosphere very well. Supreme Derivative Saddle horse - EBL Richlist with Christine Hellyer.
