2017 Fun at the Fair Super Horse Winner was Straws Classy Lass and Maggie Nelson
This has been another banner year for the Ventura County "Fun At The Fair" open all breed show. Lots of beautiful horses and talented riders. The number of entries are increasing every year, since The Greater Los Angeles Paint Horse Club took over the sponsorship of this event during Ventura's annual fair. The word is getting out that this mid week show is well run and so much fun! Team GLAPHC makes sure that this two day show is enjoyed by all those who attend, from the well rounded class list, to the ever popular card game where everyone in each class has the opportunity to win a great prize. This club gives everyone a chance to compete with other riders on the same skill level, offering classes from Walk Trot to Open. The Ventura County Fair Ribbons are large and enjoyed by all that receive them. Day end awards and overall Highpoint Awards are numerous and sought after. The 2017 Super Horse Award goes to Straws Classy Lass, a 15 year old appaloosa mare and her rider Maggie Nelson of Glendora California. They accumulated the most points over two days of showing, the categories shown are; English, Western Pleasure, Trail, and Gymkhana. Maggie and "Edna" (that's her barn name) came together when they were both six years old. They started their show career in Leadline under the watchful eye of Kris Keeler, JKK Performance Horses, of San Dimas. Since then they have been training with the goal of having an all around horse, and have been showing English Equitation, Hunter, Jumpers, Western in Equitation, Halter, and Trail. Also, trying their hand in Trail Trials and being successful in that as well. They recently went to the Appaloosa Youth World Championship Show in Fort Forth coming home with four top Five and three top Ten titles. That is a show they plan to attend next year also. The "Fun At the Fair" will also be on their list of must do shows for 2018. Maggie is presently a Ninth grader at St. Lucy Priory High School in Glendora, where next year they will competing in the Junior Varsity Equestrian Team. This team spends many hours each week together, if they aren't working on their show ring skills, they are out riding the trails in the hills above San Dimas. This pair comes from a horse family that gives them lots of love and support. The GLAPC is looking forward to hosting this truly fun show again in 2018 and seeing Maggie and Edna competing again.

Our Club meets once a month in Simi Valley, Ca for dinner and meeting at a local resturaunt. We are a very social group, so our meetings are rather informal.
