Along with their groom, club member Bailey Brantley, they sported GLAPHC shirts around the show grounds and had several banners up on the stall doors and displays.
The following is from an article in the local paper...
Taurie Banks, of Fillmore, returned home from the 2013 Pinto Horse World Championships in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with two World Championship titles and three Reserve Championships.
Riding the Black and White Stallion, See En Magic, Owned by Sue and Richard Fleczok of Simi Valley, she won the Open First Level Dressage. She received a World Championship Buckle, Ribbon and a World Championship Jacket. See En Magic Went on to make the Top Ten with a Sixth Place in Open Hunters Over Fences and Fifth Place in the Open Jumpers. He also placed Fifth in the Open Hunter Hack.
“I am so happy with Wizard (See En Magic)!” Banks said. “It has been a lot of work to get here, but Wizard was amazing. He really showed he trusted me in the ring, and relaxed, and gave me his best! I didn't know we had won, but it felt like a World Championship Ride!”
She went on to add, “In the jumping, he was so relaxed and easy to ride. I really was able to enjoy the whole World Show experience”.
Sue Fleczok, owner of See En Magic stated, “I am so glad that we found Taurie. She has the patience and the ability to read the horses, and work with them through any issues they might have.”
Taurie also rode her American Paint Horse Stallion, Tribal King, winning the OpenWestern Dressage Level 2 World Championship Title and Reserve Champion.
“This is a fairly new discipline in horse sports and I am very excited about it's future.” Taurie said. “My horse and I pushed ourselves to compete in the highest levels currently offered for Western Dressage and it paid off! Tribal King is such a supple, and flexible horse, he makes these harder tests a lot of fun.”
Tribal King also won Reserve World Champion in the Open English Dressage Second Level the day before, and was Reserve World Champion in the Open Jumping, missing the World Championship title by just a few seconds. He also placed Fifth in the Open Working Hunters.
“This was an amazing experience!” Taurie gleamed. “I had the opportunity to ride two amazing horses, in three completely different disciplines. My goal was to try and make the Top Ten in all my classes and I came home with Five Champion and Reserve Championship Buckles, and all my rides were in the Top Seven.”
Tribal King was also awarded Reserve Show Champion for the Open Hunter Type Horses for the entire two week show, even though he only competed for three days.
Taurie would like to thank Richard and Sue Fleczok for the opportunity to ride See En Magic and support they have shown in making this show a possibility. She would also like to thank her amazing, hard working groom, Bailey Brantley, who made sure the horses needs were always taken care of.
Taurie Banks is the Owner and Trainer at Kings Corner Training Stables in Fillmore.
