Horse Association of Central Kootenay holds successful show

Thirty-two riders participated in the 17th annual show.

The Horse Association of Central Kootenay (HACK) held its first show of the season May 27 and 28 at the Trail Horseman’s Grounds. Thirty-two riders participated in the 17th annual show.

“It was a great success,” said organizer Pam Malekow. “It was a gorgeous weekend — bright and sunny.”

This year’s judge, Linda Smith, was from Cranbrook.

“She was so delightful with everyone,” said Malekow. “Very helpful, kind and encouraging words were said to each and every class.”

English and Western Dressage took place Saturday morning with Longe Line, Handy Horse and Trail classes in the afternoon, and English and Western flat classes took place Sunday. The judge put everyone through their paces with Halter, Showmanship, Equitation, Pleasure, and many more.

“We had many new riders this year and all said they had so much fun and they would be back,” said Malekow. “As an organizer that is so nice to hear people say.”

Malekow thanks everyone who helped make the event a success including Cindy and Danielle Martin, Dana Lebedoff, Charity Ellis, Christy Guiest, Laura Sobkiw, Miguel Legere, Dawn Brazdil-Lust, Wendy Price and Sarah Wyatt. Thanks to the Trail Horseman’s Club, especially the grounds crew for making the rings look fabulous and Sarah Wyatt for the photography.

“Without the amazing volunteers the show would not go on,” added Malekow.
